Top 25 Wines of 2017!


The Top Wines
of 2017


It has been an amazing year of tasting, smelling & swishing wines. We tasted over 2400 wines this year, so to come up with our “own” Top 25 wines that are “the greatest” is not easy. But as always, we will do our best! My tasting group of 18 wine swishers, wine smellers, wine “evaluators”, and friends of Bacchus carefully evaluated the wines and came up with the following final list:
