Coming Up in Issue 231

Dear Readers, 

On Friday, June 30th, at 12 noon EDT, we will be publishing Robert Parker Wine Advocate Issue 231. 

This June Issue is a true summer blockbuster, with almost 3,000 wines and a few of our most highly anticipated annual reports. One such long-awaited annual piece you’ll find in this issue is our Washington State report, bringing boatloads of good news from the West Coast. And, this year’s group of Washington State wines is certainly a big one, with almost 800 wine tasting notes! 

Another shining star in this issue is our latest Italy report, “Piedmont: Barolo, Barbaresco and more.” Plus, this issue also features a new gem making its debut appearance in Robert Parker Wine Advocate—English sparkling wine!
