The Wine Spectator Top 100

Highlights from The Wine Spectator Top 100 Wines of 2018
The Wine Spectator Top 100 list can be a double edged sword for a retailer. If you have a good supply of wines in the Top 10 you can really move some wine as the list is revealed. If however you are like The Wine and Cheese Place and have already bought and sold loads of those wines based on their original press and fantastic customer base there is not a lot of excitement surrounding the Top 10. I will say the release of the whole list is always fun and gives a good snapshot of the year that was in fine wine. The 2018 list may be one of my favorite of all time, it is a good cross section of styles and price points and gives the reader a wonderful shopping list for trying new wines. Below are a few we have in the top 50 in stock and believe are well worth seeking out.
