For all wine lovers out there, we have been trying to learn and taste as many different wines from all over the world, even though we do have our favourite wine regions and wine varieties that we like. When we are searching for wine reviews or wine guides, it can be tricky at times with information all over the place. The team at Robert Parker Wine Advocate has been working very hard to present 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 large format publications are different from the former bi-annual print magazines. The guides are suitable for all levels of wine connoisseurs, from beginners who are just stepping into the wonderful world of wine and the regions that they are from, to the industry professionals and fine wine collectors seeking up-to-date reviews and insights on icon wine bottles.

The first in the series of Robert Parker Wine Advocate Annual Regional Guides are Bordeaux 2020 and California 2020. These two regions represent the best of the world of wine, the Old World and the New World. This is also where Mr Robert M. Parker Jr. first started his reviews journey, leading to the creation of the world’s most comprehensive wine review publication and most renown wine scoring system.

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.
