A society (based in the California Wine Country) of wine experts with a combined experience of almost 100 years tasting wine. TheWineInsiders sample over 5,000 wines annually and publish their ratings on TheWineInsiders.com.
“How Are We Different from Robert Parker or The Wine Spectator magazine”
Only The Wine Insiders sample every wine “blind” in a sterile office environment and adhere to a strict policy preventing advertising from wineries. This varies from magazines and wine blogs that publish ratings for wineries while simultaneously accepting advertising revenue from those wineries. This policy also varies from Robert Parker who typically meets face-to-face with winery owners and/or winemakers when judging his samples.
