Wine & Spirits
The Wine & Spirits
tasting method is a two-step process. First, all submitted wines are screened (blind tasted)
by a tasting panel composed of magazine staff, sommeliers, retailers and other wine industry professionals who
determine which wines are better than average for their particular variety or region. About 20-30% of those wines pass the panel.
The panel-recommended wines are then blind tasted by a W&S critic who will give a full assessment and score.
