For more than 35 years, The Wine Advocate, and later RobertParker.com, has been the global leader and independent consumer’s guide to fine wine. The brand was established by world-famous Robert M. Parker, Jr., the only critic in any field to receive the highest Presidential honor from three countries – France, Italy and Spain. Robert Parker Wine Advocate provides a wealth of information to its subscribers, including a searchable database of more than 300,000 professional wine ratings and reviews plus articles, videos, daily news content, online retail availability and pricing, an active, professionally moderated bulletin board, a mobile app for easy access to the comprehensive online database of reviews, and much more.
"Joining hands with Michelin, the world’s greatest authority on fine dining, is not only a great honour but also marks the beginning of a whole new era of culinary criticism, where food and wine are reviewed not in isolation but as partners," commented Robert Parker Wine Advocate Editor-in-Chief, Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW. "The integrity and reputation of Michelin so beautifully match our principles and I am very excited about what we can achieve together in the future, to the ultimate benefit of both of our readerships and audiences."
Robert Parker Wine Advocate is especially delighted to be collaborating in delivering the MICHELIN Guide for Taipei.
