Vinous is our vision of a modern-day wine media platform that places consumers inside the conversation and encourages them to form their own opinions. Vinous brings together professional reviews, the stories behind the wines and the perspectives of our readers in nearly 50 countries using multimedia and leading edge technology. We visit hundreds of wineries each year, allowing us to offer unparalleled, first-hand insight into the world of wine.
Since launching in May 2013 Vinous has become one the fastest growing wine content websites in the world. Regular features include comprehensive reviews of new releases from Italy, California, Champagne and Burgundy, vertical tastings and retrospectives, in-depth videos shot on location, Vinous Favorites - our top picks under $25 - and Vinous Table, where we profile our top eating and drinking destinations.


Antonio Galloni – Founder

Antonio Galloni’s career as one of the most trusted and respected wine critics in the world spans nearly a decade. In 2004, while a graduate student at MIT, Antonio founded Piedmont Report, the first in-depth, English language journal solely focused on Italian wine. Antonio's success led him to Robert Parker and The Wine Advocate where he became the lead critic and covered the wines of California, Italy, Burgundy and Champagne. At TWA Antonio spearheaded the production of video content, developed numerous public events and seminars such as his highly anticipated “La Festa del Barolo,” and ran numerous charitable events. Vinous is the continuation of a vision for a contemporary wine media platform first conceived by Antonio with Piedmont Report in 2004.

James Forsyth - Co-Founder

James’ interest in wine began at a very young age through no choice of his own: Bordeaux and Tuscany were regular family vacation destinations. However, it was James’ choice to join his high school’s Oenology Club (yes, you read that correctly), where he began formally learning about wine. Combining his passions for wine and entrepreneurship, James collaborates on all aspects of Vinous from technology to strategic initiatives to events. His prior experience includes investment banking and consulting with a focus on technology and product development.  James has a BA from Oxford University and an MBA from the MIT Sloan School of Management.
