When wine lovers are asked, what’s next for their favorite red wine?
Posted On July 14, 2021
USA Today has teamed up with The Wine Spectator, a leading source of wine news and analysis, to help answer this question: What’s next in red wine history?
This new edition features a special feature from the late, great Mark Bittman that asks the wine industry’s most prominent wine critics to tell us what’s coming next for red wine.
Bittman was a pioneer of the wine world and is remembered for his work with wine critics such as Mark Bresciani, John Rolfe, and Peter Siegal.
The wines he reviewed were always exceptional and a must-have for anyone who wanted to enjoy a wine that tasted as good as its name suggests.
“Mark’s passion for the wine business and his ability to find out what’s new and what’s not is unparalleled,” said Tom Schieffer, president of The Wine Survey.
“His knowledge of the world of red wines, his ability and willingness to bring new insights to our understanding of reds, and his deep knowledge of wine culture and its many personalities make him a great candidate to be our first wine reviewer.”
Wine critic Mark Bittle was a member of the Wine Spectators editorial board from 1990-2009.
He died in 2013 at the age of 95.
