The leading wine periodical comes out 16 times a year, and it is rich in features about the endless range of wine types, the regions from where they come, and the fascinating people who make them. Each issue has hundreds of wine reviews and ratings on a 100 point scale.
There is a special issue devoted to their Restaurant Grand Award Winners, another on the Top 100 wines of the Year, and another on Great Wine Values. Every issue comes with a Wine Spectator Buying Guide, full of reviews and ratings for over 500 wine releases. While their articles occasionally sound boosterish, their ratings seem fair, despite occasional grumbling that they are influenced by advertising. I once published a magazine that competed with the Spectator, and I never saw evidence that they favored advertisers. There are also some great recipes and insightful travel pieces.
