The world's top wine critic on tasting 10,000 bottles a year

The world's top wine critic on tasting 10,000 bottles a year | Grande Passione | Scoop.it
I was tasting at least 10,000 wines a year until recently – which makes around 350,000 altogether. That's a bare minimum. I'm still standing and my liver function is still OK. I take milk thistle for my liver and try to drink three times as much water to wine. If I've been tasting, I don't usually drink wine in the evening.
