Top Wines of 2013

this is the second year of the Top 10 wines. One of the main reasons was the total bias shown by some of the more famous magazines/blogs and we felt it would be beneficial to have an unbiased view and to give some of the lesser wineries some deserved accolades for the great wines they produce. This is for the little guys.

 The Top 10 are in alphabetical order of producers and those 3 wines which received the ‘perfect' 5 smiley face rating are listed in red writing.
