Inside the Wine Spectrum Top 100
The wine world loves lists. Each year, everyone from The Wine Spectator to James Suckling to The Wine Enthusiast releases their list of the top 100 wines of the Year. Wine Spectrum is no exception, but there’s good reason why our’s stands apart.
As a company, we taste and score over a thousand wines a year with a team of managers and wine advisers. So rather than expressing a single person’s opinion and rating of the wine, Wine Spectrum scores represent a total average of an entire panel. This adds up to decades of combined tasting experience and a better determination of how people will enjoy a wine overall.
From the thousands of wines we tasted over the course of the year this list represents the best of the best. Prioritizing quality (you won’t find a wine rated below 92 points) and popularity among our staff and clients, these are wines that delight and excite. From emerging labels to the cornerstone producers of the wine making world, ranging from $20 a bottle to several hundred, this year’s Top 100 Wines are a true expression of the variety and diversity available to consumers today.
