2018’s Top 25 Wines!

  

It has been an amazing year of tasting, smelling & swishing wines. We tasted over 2700 wines this year, so to come up with our “own” Top 25 wines that are “the greatest” is not easy. But as always, we try to do our best! My tasting group of 16 wine swishers, wine smellers, wine “evaluators”, and my friends of Bacchus carefully evaluated the wines and came up with the following final list – For the first we could not decide on the Number 1 wine – we looked at all the criteria (Quality, Availabitliy, Dollar Cost Average) and each time our scores were the same. So we decided to award the “Wine Of the Year” to 3 Finalists! (PAUL LATO ,CARTE BLANCHE YOUNT RIDGE )
