Gambero Rosso is an Italian food and wine magazine and publishing group founded
in 1986. Its name literally translates as "red prawn" and comes from a tavern inPinocchio where the Fox and the Cat dines.
"Gambero Rosso" was initially an eight-page supplement of il manifesto, first
published on December 16, 1986, and was founded by Stefano Bonilli. It contributed
early to spreading the views of Arci Gola, which was a forerunner to the Slow Food
From 1987, Gambero Rosso has published a guide to Italian wine, titled Vini d’Italia,
which in a short time became the most influential within Italy. It is also published
in English translation under the title Italian Wines. From the 2010 edition, the
guide is published without the participation of the Slow Food movement, following
controversy over the removal of founder Stefano Bonilli from his position.
