With The Wine Advocate now under Asian ownership, Robert Parker will kick off his “Grand World Tour” in Beijing on 26 February.
After Beijing, Parker will head to Shanghai on 1 March followed by a stint in Hong Kong from 4-6 March.
Designed to “excite, inform and entertain”, the wines chosen for the different masterclasses Parker will host have been specifically tailored to each city.
Each of the masterclasses runs with a different theme, from “The great 2000 & 2009 vintages of the Médoc” and “The great Cabernet Sauvignons of the world” to “Iconic French wines and their New World counterparts.”
In addition to the masterclasses, Parker will also be hosting gala dinners where, according to the critic, he will be serving “truly profound wines.”
