Robert Parker Sucks

Robert Parker
 
 
 
 
Most Wine Drinkers may not know this, but they’d be well advised not to ever listen to Robert Parker and his ill-advised wine news-letter The Wine Advocate. Not if they want the best wine drinking experience possible and they want to choose a good wine to go with their meal, they will not follow the horribly detramental wine drinking advice and reviews that Robert Parker gives on wine. The kind of wines Parker loves the most are overly-oaked, Overly-Rich, heavily concentrated wine that are crafted to be Heavy Thick Full Bodied Oaky Fruit-Bomb Wines that un-naturally made wine that are awful to drink with food. The Wines that Parker likes clash with food instead of complimenting it. If it was up to Robert Parker he’d have all the wines in the World tasting like over-manipulated, big, fat powerful wines like California Cabernets and Meritage Blends instead of wonderful food complementary wines such as; true Chianti, Barolo, Brunello, Beaujlais, some Bordeaux wines and the like. Wines  that go well with food instead of clashing with it as many of the so-called Parkerized Wines do. The man has ruined the publics perception to what good wine is and should be. The public thinks because he is a famous wine writer, that he knows best and what he’s talking about. Maybe he does, but the style of wine he likes, well, they are quite questionable.

    If the general public wants the best wine drinking experience possible, they’d be wise to steer clear of The Wine Advocate and any wine advice dished out by Mr. Parker.

      Robert Parker’s advice on wine is advice that steers and influences peoples perceptions of what great wine is, into a quite a bad, almost one-dimensional place of homogenized overly thick un-natural wines. People should stop taking advice of Robert Parker and the World of Wine would be a much better place, a place of real more natural wines that is. So ladies and gentlemen you should know the Robert Parker’s wine-advice SUCKS to put it mildly. Robert Parker and his wine reviews, and Ratings of Wine quite literally Suck The Big One.
     If you want to be true to the local terroir of where ever any particular wine might come from, in other words, Chianti should taste like Chianti, Barolo should taste like Barolo, and Bordeaux like Bordeaux and not like a “Big Fat” California or Autralian Cabernet or Meritage Blended Wine and such.


 People should drink wines that go great with food and are “Real Natural Wines” the kind of Wines that were made for 100 of years and still are except for those wines made by owners who have fallen into to whole Robert Parker “Spin Doctor” realm and make “Overly-Concentrated Wine” that taste fake and un-natural, they are manipulated and are the kind of wines that Parker loves and gives High 90 Plus Ratings to. These wines all sell very well and demand high inflated prices because most people are followers and unable to make up their own minds so they listen to Svengali and buy these over-rated manipulated wines bolstered by Robert Parker and his terrible twist on wine. Many wine-makers want to jump on the Band Wagon and sell more wine at the highest prices, thus the dilemma of Parker and his terrible influence on the Wine World.

   So people I urge you to drink real wine. Drink real Chianti (not any that contain Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot), drink Barolos that have been aged in large gentile Slovenian Oak Cask instead of small 225 liter Barrique Barrels that make many wines taste more of Wood (the way Parker likes them) than beautiful unadulterated with natural fruit (Grapes). Drink wines like; Brunello, Cote du Rhones, and just about anything other than overly-concentrated, overly Oaked, manipulated over-oaked wines from Australia and over-powering Californian and Australian monsters and you’ll be doing OK, “Just DON’T Listen to anything ROBERT PARKER and his highly popular but detrimental newsletter The Wine Advocate. The man almost single handily Destroyed what Good Wine “is” and should be and the general publics perception on wine for they beleive they are following the advice of an expert. ” NOT !!!.
So folks be “Anti-Parker” you’ll be glad you Do.

Worlds Best Breakfast

Screen Shot 2015-11-20 at 2.13.49 PM

My Breakfast at Villa Maria Agroturismo, Minori

.

The World’s Best Breakfast? Yes, well maybe. Or maybe not, but for me, the best breakfast I’ve ever had in my life. I came across Villa Maria Agroturismo when I was watching vidoes of Sicily and The Amalfi Coast on Youtube one night. I was getting ready to go on my trip and I was just looking for inspritation and a way to psych myself for my upcomong vacation. I just happened upon this video made by David Rocco. David Rocco is a Celebrity Chef from Toronto and he had done a series of food & wine videos on Italy. This particular one that I came across was about this wonderful little agroturismo Lemon Grove Farm in Minaori Italy on The Amalfi Coast called Villa Maria Agroturismo. Well I loved the video and fell in love with this place and the people who run it, husband and wife team Vincenzo & Maria. Vincenzo tends to his farm which is mainly a wonderful Lemon farm, but Vincenzo also has a good number of Olive Trees to make olive oil, he has grapevines from which he gets grapes to make a wonderful red wine and a white as well, he grows all sorts of fruits and vegetables, he has chickens for eggs and meat, as well as pigs so he can make his own homemade Salami and Prosciutto.

Yes Vincenzo takes care of the farm and he also runs his little inn agrosturismo that has 6 lovely little rooms way up in the mountain top of Minori. They also have a nice little restauarnt that you eat, yes the world’s best breakfast and a marvelous 4 Course Dinner every night made my Maria with all the food made from products from their farm; Salami, Wine, Olive Oil, fruits and vegetbles, Pork Chops, Frittata (eggs) etc.. You’ll not get a better meal anywhere, I promise you.
