Every year all the major wine publications announce their top wines of the year. I’ll be doing much the same with next Tuesday’s email but I wanted to do something a little different first.

So today we’ll take a look at the Snooth users top wines of 2009. How are we going to do this? Glad you asked.  I’ve compiled a few fun lists so we can take a look at the top searches for regions, grape varieties, wineries, specific wines, and for the heck of it most viewed articles.

Before we begin let me thank you all for making Snooth the world’s largest wine site this year.  With your help, and a lot of hard work, 2010 will be even better. It’s going to be a fun year, and I can't wait to see how our lists evolve over time.
