Robert Parker Wine Advocate sample submissions

Robert Parker Wine Advocate sample submissions

Wine writer Erin Larkin from Western Australia has been announced as the new reviewer of Australian Wines for the Robert Parker Wine Advocate. 

Erin is now inviting producers to submit samples, bearing in mind a new schedule she has created.

She will be tasting NSW & ACT wines from October 17 to November 18, so encourages you to submit samples before or on October 17th.

Note, in the past it has been a requirement that you have distribution in the United States to qualify for submission. This is no longer the case. However, there is a cap on the number of notes that can be submitted annually, so Erin asks that you only submit wines that best represent what you do (not everything you do).
