Every December, the Wine Spectator, one of the world's foremost wine magazines, features its list of the top 100 wines of the year (selected out of 18,000 contenders). Contrary to popular belief, not all the wines selected for this distinction are super expensive, exclusive cuvées from top wine producers that are beyond the average wine consumer's budget. In fact, quite a few are excellent value wines for about $20 and under. We will taste and learn about a cross section of the top 100 from different regions around the world that are readily available in local wine stores. Three main criteria were used in selecting the wines, including quality (based on score), value (based on price) and availability (either made in or imported into the US).
