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.
