NAPA, CALIFORNIA - Media OutReach - 21 November 2019 - From chateau to you, trusted wine reviews are closer at hand than ever. The team at Robert Parker Wine Advocate has been hard at work and can now reveal their inaugural Annual Regional Guides, a specialised series of guides that present the wines from each chosen region in a full-colour, softcover book format. These new, higher quality and larger format publications are different from the former bi-annual print magazines, and will be shipped in time for Christmas 2019 to provide invaluable wine information to readers for the coming years ahead. The guides are suitable for all levels of wine connoisseurs, from beginners looking to uncover the talking points of the region, to industry professionals and fine wine collectors seeking up-to-date reviews and insights on icon bottles.

The first in the series are Bordeaux 2020 and California 2020. These two regions represent the best of Old World and New World, and furthermore are where Robert M.

Each book distills over 1,500 Wine Advocate reviews of the most important wines recommended over the course of the past year, as well as retrospectives on top brands, winery highlights, vintage reports dating to the 1970s and much more.
