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!

Modern Drunkard

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.

Wine Spectator

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.

Looking for a wine magazine with kick? With an attitude? This magazine rates wines as being "like a blonde from San Diego riding a dolphin into a sunset". Learn to see wines from a whole new point of view.
