About the List
We’ve just revealed the full Top 100 of 2016! 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 more than 25 years of the world’s top wines!
For detailed profiles of the 2016 picks, check out the complete Top 100 Wines of 2016 package in the Dec. 31, 2016, issue of Wine Spectator, on newsstands Dec. 13.
(Note: In 1998, some wines share the same rank, as the list was divided into top reds, whites and dessert wines.)
