Paso Robles, Rhône & Switzerland: That's Where Our Reviewers Are This Week

Social media can give even the tiniest of glimpses into the lives of others. In our new series, we’re rounding up what a handful of our Wine Advocate team members have been up to over the past week. Join us along our ever-changing tasting adventures. 

Where in the world is Lisa Perrotti-Brown? Not Tuscany, but the gorgeous rolling vineyard hills of DAOU Vineyards & Winery in Paso Robles.

Over in Burgundy, Neal Martin is at the best fork in the road with two vineyards on either side. “One clearly with more fruit than the other. The laden vine is La Grande Rue, less fruit is Romanée-Conti.”

Managing editor Joe Czerwinski had an 8:00 a.m. start time for his Rhône tastings. But as the saying goes, it’s always 5:00 somewhere, right?

What happens when Luis Gutiérrez is home alone? Perfectly cooked steak for one.

Stephan Reinhardt is on a Pinot Noir kick in Switzerland.
