While Robert Parker and his bi-monthly wine publication The Wine Advocate hardly need an introduction, Napa Valley Commons wishes to introduce them as a new member to our growing business park family and extend a very warm welcome to their newly relocated editorial, sales, and marketing team.
Revered as one of the most influential wine critics in the world, Parker has harvested a select group of nine wine reviewers worldwide in his efforts to expand coverage of the ever growing wine industry. Leading the charge as editor-in-chief of The Wine Advocate since 2012, Lisa Perrotti-Brown conveyed such sentiments when she expressed to us how they “want to taste every great wine that we can recommend to our members.”
Lisa herself has been in the wine industry for over 25 years. With just a few months in their new office space and the office furniture still being selected, there’s no question about her passion for wine as bottles cover the office landscape. Her experience with Robert Parker began when she started writing a column in 2008 for eRobertParker.com; a year where she also achieved her Master of Wine qualification and the Madame Bollinger Medal for excellence in wine tasting. Along with being editor-in-chief, Lisa also is the publication’s critic for Australian and New Zealand wines.
For their new location in Napa, she went on to express their vision of expanding coverage of Northern California wines, one of the many reasons Napa was such a great fit, and specifically how Napa Valley Commons was ideal too for its convenience and location, a gateway of sorts to “all things Napa”. While details aren’t entirely mapped out, there was also budding enthusiasm when Lisa spoke about future events that The Wine Advocate would be planning throughout Napa.
To be sure, Napa Valley Commons joins all of Napa as we congratulate Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate in their recent move and express our eagerness at the many exciting things that are no doubt in store. Having been a tour de force in the world of wine, the Napa community will certainly benefit all the more by the Wine Advocate’s ongoing contributions to the wine community.
