Robert Parker retires from The Wine Advocate - WBM Online

Robert M. Parker, The father of modern wine criticism, arguably the most influential wine critic in the world. Born and bred in Maryland, Parker began his wine writing in 1984. Today, a 100-point Parker score can make or break a wine brand.

The Wine Advocate newsletter first became known after Parker accurately predicted the high quality of the 1982 Bordeaux vintage. It soon became a standard reference for fine-wine consumers in the United States. The Wine Advocate is believed to have a profound effect both on prices and market demand for fine wines around the world, particularly those from Parker's preferred regions.

Parker has famously tasted and scored some of the world's finest and most prestigious wines. He has certainly tasted the majority of the World's Most Expensive Wines.

In 2006 Parker chose a group of staff members to cover the majority of the world’s wine regions in his place, and generate wine scores. In December 2012 Parker stepped back from his full-time position at The Wine Advocate, naming Lisa Perrotti-Brown as the publication's new editor-in-chief. He retired formally in 2019.
