About The Wine Advocate
The Wine Advocate ® -- "the Independent Consumer's Bimonthly Guide to
Fine Wine" -- is published by Robert M. Parker, Jr.
Each issue consists of around 48 pages of wine tasting notes and
includes no advertising. Most notes are for recently released wines or
wines that will be released in the near future. Parker also reviews
older wines from time to time. One issue each year includes barrel
tastings of the prior year's Bordeaux wines. Another annual feature is
an extensive review of great wine values -- generally wines which can
be purchased for $10.00 or less. In collaboration with Robert Parker,
Wine Technologies edits each issue of The Wine Advocate for inclusion in the wine database that accompanies our software.
