But, of course, I´m not going to respond publicly to a pseudonym.
Isn´t it true that there was a visit to the Juan Alcorta winery to taste the wines Azpilicueta Crianza 2009, 2004; Campo Viejo Reserva and Campo Viejo Gran Reserva. This was published on Verema and signed off by you:
It´s a fantastic winery like many others in La Rioja but it´s wines aren´t even sold in the US with the exception of Campo Viejo in supermarkets. Did Jay Miller choose that winery?
There are many other wineries that do sell their wines in the US and have higher points but, as they don´t sponsor your events, haven´t had visits. In private many people have complained but, as I said before, they don´t want more problems, not with the President of the Consejo and above all not with Parker´s team. It´s true that many can submit their wines to be tasted via the Consejo or through their importers but what we all want is to have our photo taken with Miller and for him to visit our winery.
DO Campo de Borja, after Rioja, Ribera and Cataluña, got a visit from Miller. Isn´t it true that Google is full of dates of tastings that they have contracted you to do? And , going by the prices you publish for your classes, they won´t have been cheap. DO Campo de Borja can do what they like with their money but can you deny that there is a very direct link here?
The DO Madrid matter is all in the public domain with the publication of the emails between you, Adela and the DO. Do you want more proof?
There are dozens and dozens of examples all over Spain. But I´m going to leave it to the wine journalists and the non-wine journalists – because this transcends our humble little industry – for them to investigate the details, above all how you are lining your pockets managing Miller´s agenda at the expense of the of the tiny budgets of the Spanish DOs.
And nothing against Jay Miller or the Wine Advocate and all the other wine critics who are welcome in Rioja, but there is just no need to employ intermediaries.
I´m off to have my supper because I´m just repeating what is blindingly obvious. Please don´t send me any more private messages because there´s already enough secrecy in this matter. Whatever you like, here.
