Canadian wine critic Natalie MacLean: 'What I am doing is legal and right'

  1. Nat is not a pro. Anyone promoting Santa Margherita Pinot Grigio should not be taken seriously. That would be one of the reviews she did herself I would hope.

    1. Interesting. I do not know this person, and have zero knowledge of her blog/Web site, but expect to see more of the same, in the future.

      If the allegations of "play for pay" are true, it should bring down the site, and cast a very bad light on the reviews.

      Wineglas1 mentions the Santa Margherita PG, but I have no knowledge of that review. Still, while the producers/importers claim that it is the "most popular PG in the world," I would postulate that it is only because of a giant advertising budget. I have never been even moderately impressed by any vintage of that wine, and see it on many wine lists, ranging from US $75 to $150 in price. I would not pay US $10 for a bottle, but that might just be me.
