Michelin has acquired Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate. Valerie Kathawala reports on the details in Grape Collective.

In Wine-Searcher, Kathleen Willcox explores wineries that grow only one grape variety. “An almost existential quest for authenticity and a grape’s truest expression seems to pervade the perspective and approach to winemaking of every varietal-infatuated producer. But there is also a feeling, akin to the idealized notion of marriage so many of us grew up with, that they “get” this one grape more than others do, and it’s their job to not help this grape achieve terroir transcendence, but also explain away some of its less-appreciated personality tics to the rest of the world.”

On the blog for First Vine, Tom Natan examines why many wine drinkers seem to need their wine to be considered “healthy,” and talks with Georgetown professor of philosophy Rebecca Kukla about the increasing need to cast wine as a health beverage.
