TOP 10 Wines Picked by You
As 2014 comes to a speedy end it is time to let the Whine and Cheers readers decide what the TOP wines of the year were for them. With close to 40,000 hits it’s interesting to see which wines are being researched the most.
Even more compelling to me is where these searches are coming from. Listed below at the end of this post you’ll find the TOP 15 countries [out of 96!] where searches were initiated leading them to Whine and Cheers for Wine. For those wondering; Republic of Tanzania came in at number 16!
As the drum-roll begins I have to admit that one post in particular wins the gold star for most hits all year-long. No matter the day, the week or the month, wine drinkers are intrigued and their attention peaked. The honor belongs to Australia’s 19 CRIMES Red Blend. Wonderfully marketed, its fan base continues to grow.
For this TOP 10 wine list it will be exactly that, wines not themes. But it is intriguing to note that Beer with; My 12 Days of Beer Camp, along with Winemaker Visits B.R. Cohn Visits Whole Foods and Wine Clubs; Hit or Miss the Wall Street Journal Wine Club would have made the TOP 10 otherwise. So here we go….
