- Tuesday, February 26th, 2013 - MAC - Adventures in Wine Writing: the Paris Tasting and Its Aftermath
George M. Taber is the author of "Judgment of Paris," which recounts the story of the famous 1976 event when unknown California wines defeated top French ones. Taber was the only journalist present at that turning point in the history of wine. His second book, "To Cork or Not to Cork," won the Jane Grigson Award from the International Association of Culinary Professionals; and was a finalist for the James Beard Award for best book on wine and alcohol and the Andrew Simon Award for best wine book. Before turning to writing wine books, Taber was a reporter and editor with Time magazine for 21 years, based in Bonn, Paris, Houston and New York.
