Born and raised in Maine, USA, Lisa Perrotti Brown, MW, began her career as the manager of a wine bar in London more than 20 years ago. She progressed through wine sales and marketing roles in the UK wine trade 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 began writing a column for Robert Parker’s website, eRobertParker.com, and later that year she achieved her Master of Wine qualification and the Madame Bollinger Medal for excellence in wine tasting. Now living in Singapore, she has recently been appointed as Editor in Chief for Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate and eRobertParker.com and remains the publication’s reviewer for the wines of Australia and New Zealand.
Lisa moved to Napa Valley in 2015 to set up a Wine Advocate office here.
