Top 20 Wines 2023

Top 20 Wines in 2023Here is our list of our top 20 wines in 2023. We tasted hundreds of wines last year. Some, we bought at wineries and retail outlets. Others, we tasted at wine events. Likewise, some kind folks shared their bottles with us, while others sent us samples. We also tasted many wines on incredible road trips to Horse Heaven Hills, Walla Walla, and Vancouver Island. Most importantly, we are wine enthusiasts, not wine critics. So, these wines are not scored. They simply made a lasting impression.

Some of these vintages are no longer available, however you should be able to find recent releases instead. We recommend that you click on the winery links for more information.
