Robert #Parker interview: The world's top #wine critic on tasting 10,000 bottles a year, absurd drinking notes and New World wannabes | Vitabella Wine Daily Gossip | Scoop.it

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.
