About the List
We’ve revealed the Top 100 of 2017! Each year, Wine Spectator editors survey the wines reviewed over the previous 12 months and select our Top 100, based on quality, value, availability and excitement. This annual list honors successful wineries, regions and vintages around the world.
Here you’ll find every Top 100 list back to the debut year, 1988. Since then, new regions, grapes and styles have appeared on the list, but the classics are still going strong. Enjoy browsing nearly 30 years of the world’s top wines!
For detailed profiles of the 2017 picks, check out the complete Top 100 Wines of 2017 package in the Dec. 31, 2017, issue of Wine Spectator, on newsstands Nov. 28, or buy a back issue or digital edition when they become available.
(Note: In 1998, some wines share the same rank, as the list was divided into top reds, whites and dessert wines.)
