Search Wine Reviews & Ratings

My wine reviews cover a wide range of grapes and regions. These wine reviews should help you find the wine styles you love at any price. As well, all of my wine reviews include food pairings - I don't believe that wine reviews without matching dishes are useful. Let me know if there's anything I can do to make these wine reviews more helpful to you. Cheers!

Red, White & Drunk All Over

Red, White & Drunk all over by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean writes about wine with a sensuous obsession... and often laugh-out-loud funny... Terrific.

Unquenchable: A Tipsy Search

  Best Books of the Year

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
