Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW
Editor-in-Chief and Reviewer
Born and raised in rural Maine, USA, Lisa graduated from Colby College, ME, with degrees in English Literature and Performing Arts. Her wine career began by happenstance when, living as a struggling playwright in London after college, she was offered a job as the manager of a wine bar. Upon acquiring the position, she promptly enrolled for classes at the WSET (Wine and Spirit Education Trust) and continued her studies with them until achieving the institution’s highest accreditation level: Diploma. Lisa progressed through wine sales and marketing roles in the UK wine trade throughout the ‘90s and early noughties before moving to Tokyo in 2002, where she worked as a wine buyer for one of Japan's top fine wine importers and a wine educator at Tokyo's Academie du Vin. In 2008, Lisa moved to Singapore and began writing a column for Robert Parker’s website, eRobertParker.com. Later that year she achieved her Master of Wine (MW) qualification and the Madame Bollinger Medal for excellence in wine tasting. In 2013, she became the Editor-in-Chief for Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate and RobertParker.com. She is also the publication’s critic for the wines of Bordeaux, Napa Valley and Sonoma County Bordeaux Varieties. In 2015, Lisa’s first book, Taste Like a Wine Critic: A Guide to Understanding Wine Quality, was published. Recently, she relocated to Napa, California, to set up the new office for The Wine Advocate. She now lives in Napa with her British husband, two young daughters, their Border Collie and three sheep.

In addition to tastings with many of the Old World's greatest producers, he brought many of California's most celebrated and exciting wineries to Oxford for the first time. Kelley had the unique privilege to cut his teeth as a taster on many of the great wines of Burgundy of the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s. After a stint covering Burgundy for Decanter magazine and working harvests in both California and the Côte d'Or, he made the happy move to The Wine Advocate in 2017.
