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.
Join us in the Snooth Forum.Join our lively community in discussing the wines, and issues, that seem important today. We don't take ourselves too seriously, and welcome all comers, novice and aficionado alike.
Some of our greatest content comes from you, the Snooth user2007 Castello del Poggio Moscato d'Asti
With almost 200 reviews this is our hands down, most searched for wine of the year! The Olive Garden’s house sparkler elicits remarks like “OMG my hubby n I bought a bottle @ Olive Garden to drink @ dinner with friends, it is amazing. My new favorite ever!!!” With Olice Garden serving this it's no surprise half the country is searching for it! Sort of Like Santana's sparkling wine (Wine #4), which elicits, shall we say, more adult content. See the top searched wines of the year.
How to speak wine and "Really" taste wine
Our most viewed article of the year “How to speak wine and "Really" taste wine” began a several week series looking at some of the basics of wine making and wine appreciation. Not too many funny comments to report on, most were along the lines of “Greg this is great All very well finding that you enjoy some wines & and dislike others, but makes a big difference when you get to know why you appreciate some wines more than others” See the top ten viewed articles of the year.
