A Master of Wine Passes Judgement on a Texas Wine

October 08, 2020

The 2019 Texas International Wine Competition held a judges' tour at Ron Yates Wines. One of the judges was John Salvi, Master of Wine (MW), a venerated elder who earned the MW in 1970 (becoming one of only 20 in the world at that time). Other judges around Salvi warned Yates that "he may not drink anything".
