I estimate I taste around 2200 wines in a year (give or take), and although not all of them are reviewed on my websites, they all contribute to my overall view of value and quality.
Of course to whittle down the nearly 1000 which I do review in-depth for my annual TOP 100 +11 is a challenge, but one I enjoy.
Many of the wines I review will not qualify for my TOP 100 list because they are above $20 - the best of those over $20 will come in a separate list - my annual TOP 50 $20-$50, or perhaps show up in my Gift Giving Guide.
After all the retracing of my steps, the filtering through of the wines I have tasted over the past year which are $20 and under and have received a score of 89 points or more on my sister site WineScores.ca, this is what I have come up with, a well rounded list of white, red and pink, sparkling and still wines from: Argentina, Australia, British Columbia, California, Chile, France, Italy, New Zealand, Portugal and Spain...
Enjoy WineDiva's Top 100 +11 of 2011!
