The Top 100 Most Popular Wines of 2015

As 2015 draws to a close, what better way than to review the wines that customers ordered most of in 2015.  This is the ninth year that one of the US's largest online wine retailers has published their top 100 list and it is based on sales of wines from the first eleven months of the year.

There are plenty of great wines on the list this year, although some are already sold out.  You can check out the full list here: 100 – check out the list here.

Three of my favorites on the list are below:

Columbia Crest H3 Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Currently on offer at $11.99, this is a bargain basement thick red, packing a punch at 14.5% alcohol.

Faustino 1 Gran Reserva 2001

An absolute gem of a wine - classic Spanish and fifteen years old!  Time to drink it up! has it for under $30, which is below the national average price of $34 so snap it up whilst stocks last.

La Marca Prosecco NV

Get your sparkle on with this cheap and cheerful Prosecco.  Highly available in most major supermarkets around the country and available online at for $13.99.  What's not to like right?

Introducing Wine Price Checker

Generic wine

We get a lot of people asking about wine deals and where to find good value wine and every so often, someone has a particular wine and vintage that they are trying to get hold of.  The wine retailing market is extremely inefficient and prices per bottle can vary significantly, depending on which state you live on, how much margin the local retailer has, as well as other factors like sales tax and shipping.

So we decided to try out a new service that allows anyone to send us details of a wine they want to get hold of, and we will try to find them the best online price.  This is somewhat proof of concept, so don't expect anything fancy, but if you are looking to find a particular wine, why not give it a go. It's free to use and might just save you some money.
