The US critic became a journalist at a young age, with a long and distinguished career at the Wine Spectator, the world´s leading magazine in oenology. After working at the Wine Spectator for thirty years, he started his own website, where he published all the information on his work as a critic and lover of good wines. Suckling has always favoured the wines of Europe and came to live in Europe many years ago so that he could concentrate on wine tasting in the terroir, such as the one in Bodegas Campillo last spring.
