October 2019 Week 2 Issue Now Live

Our October 2019 Week 2 Issue has dropped, featuring over 350 wines tasted by our Wine Advocate reviewers. 

Our Italy-based reviewer Monica Larner highlights new releases from both Campania and Basilicata, as well as a spotlight on Matera. "Over the course of 2019, Matera has been the televised backdrop for Italy’s major events, ranging from political debates to regional cooking shows," Larner says in her report. "This new Matera is light-years ahead of the impoverished Basilicata portrayed in Carlo Levi’s landmark book Christ Stopped at Eboli."

Also in this issue is Erin Brooks's report from Paso Robles, California: 30 Years of Tablas Creek. "I’ll publish a fuller report on the specifics of the vintage in Paso later this year, but [Jason] Haas is optimistic about the results at Tablas Creek," Brooks says.
