CAMPOGATE – THE JIM BUDD INTERVIEW

by / Wednesday, 22 February 2012 / Published in FEATURE, INTERVIEWS

In December 2011 Jim Budd, professional wine journalist based in London with 24+ years experience, was bestowed the title of “This Blogger…” by Robert Parker in relation to his findings in the “Campogate” story (together with Harold Heckle) where an email by Pancho Campo MW was found offering the region of Murcia a 50% discount (€20.000,- instead of the “usual” €40.000,-) to have Jay Miller, a (since then) former Wine Advocate critic, come and review the region’s wines.

On February 14, 2012, Jim’s title was lengthened to “This Blogger Budd…” where Robert Parker alleges on erobertparker.com that Jim is reluctant to co-operate with his legal team in regards to the investigation. This interview was filmed on January 29, 2012… you be the judge if this is a true statement on the part of Mr. Parker.
