Top-Ten Selling Wines of 2018

 

Wine.com’s Top-Ten Selling Wines of 2018 

Wine.com is the most popular online wine shop in the U.S. Today, Wine.com released its annual list of their Top 100 Wines sold to this date in 2018.

Here are the top-ten wines on the list. Why? It is interesting to see what wine consumers are buying across the nation. The top-ten tell us what wines they like and at what price point.

All but two on the top ten sellers are under the $20 mark. The Chateau d’Esclans 2017 Whispering Angel Rose is $21.99, but locally the Ferry Plaza Wine Merchant sells it for $20.



Wine folks like wine.com for its convenience and ease of searching for wines. They have a huge inventory of wines from all over the world. When I visited Wine.com’s Website, I was immediately greeted by a wine expert who wanted to chat with me about my wine questions. That’s a great service for those who find wine somewhat of a mystery.

Comparing the prices of wine on Wine.com to brick-and-mortar stores reveals wine.com online shoppers are paying more for their wines. Add shipping to the purchase and the price per bottle goes way up. Examples of price differences: Kendall Jackson Vintner’s Reserve is $10.99 at Trader Joe’s and Costco, $9.89.  Meomi Pinot Noir is $17.99 at Safeway and Trader Joe’s. At Costco, it is $16.79. On Monday of this week, I purchased the 2016 Substance Cabernet Sauvignon at Costco for $12.99.

Washington State has two wines in the Top-Ten. I recently visited the wine country area of Washington. If you missed my article on Washington wines, click on this link: Washington Wines. I am enjoying Washington wines and purchase them when I find them on the wine shelf for value prices.

The next few weeks will bring the top 100 wines from the Wine Spectator and the Wine Enthusiast. It is always fun to analyze the lists and see how many under-$20 wines are in the Top 100. I expect to find many Best Buy wines on these two lists.
