Since we launched it in 2001, The Wine Advocate site largely remained unchanged in its early beginnings and is currently undergoing its first massive modification, revision and facelift. Although robertparker.com sits behind a paywall, there is no doubt that the quantity of free wine information on the Internet presented an enormous opportunity for amateurs and serious wine enthusiasts to share their opinions and thoughts about wine. In short, it was a wine information bonanza, and totally free.
