What a fascinating publication this is ! Wine Spectator is written for people serious about wine-but who dont take themselves or their wines too seriously. As well as being educational and informative this US publication is thoroughly entertaining as well.They also have an online version. You will find it at http://www.winespectator.com.
The online version is a breeze to load and very simple to navigate. What a site ! You will find this is a veritable treasure trove of useful information about wine,just like the print version. There are sections on wine ratings, daily wine news, collecting, wine basics,vintage wines,and a great section on winery profiles covering the US, Europe, Australia and New Zealand.
Most of the wine related articles are most interesting. Recent ones have included "...Top 1000 Wines of 2001" . " What am I tasting ?" and " Top Pick of the New Releases".
I should add that Wine Spectator is not limited to wine as regards its editorial coverage. There are interesting articles on dining-mostly featuring US locations- and on Travel.
This is a highly regarded,authoritative publication with high standards. They say they believe their readers want to know the stories behind the wines that are well known,well respectd and worth their attention.They certainly succeed in meeting those requirements and do so in a most entertaining manner. All in all a most interesting.lively,entertaining and useful publication. No wonder it has a lot of devotees and a avid readership.Another notable feature of Wine Spectator is that the material is timely and up-to-date.
