While interviewing Matt, our conversation took an interesting turn where we both identified the need for a benchmark that Sommeliers and Restaurateurs can refer to while stocking their wine cellars and inventory.
So here we present to you the Top 100 on-premise wines that sommeliers should look out for!
Top 100 On-Premise wines is a celebration of 100 top wines at the Sommeliers Choice Awards. Uniquely, the T100Wines are selected from votes made by top Sommeliers and On-Premise wine buyers of USA.
Sommeliers Choice Awards is the ultimate wine competition which aims to provide on-premise buyers and sommeliers a valuable benchmark for understanding which wines would make a compelling addition to a wine list. An all-star judging panel consisting of leading sommeliers, on-premise wine buyers, wine directors at the U.S. restaurants, bars, pubs, and clubs gather in San Francisco to judge wines coming from across the globe. Wines are judged on the basis of: Food Parability, Typicity, Value, Quality, and Package.
