Gambero Rosso and Slow Food officially sever ties

In a press release issued yesterday, Gambero Rosso and Slow Food have announced that the two publishers have severed ties and that Gambero Rosso will be the sole editor of the guide to the Wines of Italy:

    Gambero Rosso’s president Paolo Cuccia and Slow Food Italia’s president Roberto Burdese have consensually decided to end their partnership in the production of the guide Vini d’Italia [Wines of Italy]. Their collaboration lasted more than 20 years (22 editions were published, beginning with the first, released in November 1987).

    The guide will continue to be published by Gambero Rosso, who owns the masthead, while Slow Food will devote itself to new projects devoted to wine, including a new guide that will see the light of day in 2010 (in the fall of 2009, the new edition of the Guida al Vino Quotidiano [Guide to Wines for Every Day] will be released as planned).
