Top 50 Wines of 2018

undefined, null

Each year VinePair, the country's most-read wine publication releases its Top 50 wines of the year and this year, VinePair is partnering with wine.com in order to make them more easily accessible. To come up with this ranking, members of the VinePair team, including staff, contributors, and trusted industry friends compiled a shortlist of their favorite wines, tasted in 2018. After some energetic discussions, wines were brought in and tasted as a panel and we then whittled the list down to our top 50, guided by the following criteria.

All bottles had to be readily available in the U.S., and those which were considered worthy of a place in the top 10 were tasted multiple times. The top 50 list focuses on wines that are drinkable, interesting, and, above all, offer great value for money. Nothing that made the list last year was considered for inclusion, and we placed a limit on one bottle per winery.
