About the List
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, from 2013 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 a quarter-century of the world's top wines!
(* In 1998, some wines share the same rank, as the list was divided into top reds, whites and dessert wines.)
