Wine buyers and enthusiasts use these ratings as a "quality assurance" method in making wine choices. All the wines we will taste tonight have earned a high A (90+) rating from the various wine media and critics. Join us to see if you agree, and get a chance to purchase some highly rated wines before they are sold out.
