We often taste every wine multiple times, although not always blind
We compare wines against a host of other wines within the same category
We often taste with Master Somms and people with deep knowledge and tasting experience
We travel to every major wine convention including Vinitaly, VinExpo, Prowein, ViniSud, and other regional events.
We follow every major wine critic and some other who we know and respect
We rate every wine on 100 points within its respective category (like Decanter). While we can argue the advantages or disadvantages of the 100 point system, we believe this is a more fair way to judge wines.
