This Week In Wine 101: Which Wine Reviews Can I Trust?
When it comes to wine reviews there’s an endless pool of opinions but which reviews can you trust to have your palate’s best interest at heart? It’s like a veritable pool of wine olympic ratings and critics, all competing for your attention. If you’re a newcomer to the wine scene and are unsure which reviews to trust, it can be a bit of a gamble, considering the fact that you are still discovering an assortment of varietals as well as discerning the differences between what you deem as poor, good, great and excellent wine! I’m not saying you’ll lose your money, but when it comes to wine, the matter is entirely subjective. Not to mention, when you have the means to invest or purchase a more expensive case or bottle of wine, it’s better to have a couple or several trusted wine reviews (opinions) to back up your purchase instead of shopping in the dark and picking a bottle at random.
