Wine Magazine Reviews
There are many different magazines on the world of wine, each with its own focus and audience. Here are a collection of magazines I've looked through over the years!
This is definitely the magazine for someone used to 3-night-long benders and waking up in strange locations. Heavy drinking is the common theme - along with some mind-bending poetry!

Quarterly Review of Wine
This elegant magazine comes out every 3 months (as you might guess) and tends to cover the finer things in life. Their writing and reviews are quite admired and respected.

Robert Parker / Wine Advocate
Robert Parker is one of the best known wine reviewers - to the point that some wineries deliberately make their wines in a style he likes, so that he'll rate them well and they will sell well. Some appreciate Robert's help - while others are upset at the way his personal taste is affecting the industry.
Robert Parker's Website
The elephant of the wine magazine world, the spectator can make or break a winery with its reviews. Amusingly, any wine that the Spectator lists as a "great buy for the price" quickly has a much elevated price, as wine shops see the demand increase.
