Robert Whitley, RIP

Creators is very saddened to share about the sudden passing of our columnist Robert Whitley. He was a special part of the Creators family and beloved by his readers, wine aficionados and the wine industry at large.
Robert Whitley joined Creators in 2008. With his weekly syndicated column, "Wine Talk," his role as the director of four major international wine competitions and other treasured endeavors, his expertise grew to be recognized and appreciated around the world.
