Here it is – our annual listing of the best bottles of the year. Sit back and “sip” these reviews of stellar wines.


The Best of 2015

It’s been a good year! During 2015, which is now rapidly drawing to a close, we had an opportunity to taste hundreds of wines and visit wineries in New York’s Finger Lakes, Ontario, California, and South Africa. Of course, we do it just for one reason, to bring you the inside information on the very best wines.

Here’s our list of top wines from 2015. We present the list in alphabetical order. An asterisk indicates exceptional quality. Raise a glass!
