A guide to the guides

There are lots of wine magazines with lots of tasting notes and lots of "best of" ratings.

How do you know which truly are good consumer guides?

That's something the former editor of Wine Enthusiast magazine wondered, so he put together a guide to the guides that makes for good reading.

As W.R. Tish (seen here) notes, "It doesn't take a fly on the wall at editorial tastings to see important differences among the major glossy magazines, as well as the extent to which their burgeoning wine review sections are as much marketing guides for the trade as they are buying guides for consumers."
