Greatest Summer Hits September 05 2016, 0 Comments

You tasted, you rated, and we heard you!  From Memorial Day to Labor Day, these are the chart toppers, the highest rated, and the most celebrated wines of the summer of 2016.

Every time you pour and rate at Taste, you’re not only collecting the points (wine is so much more fun than Pokemon Go), but each rating is a vote.  There were plenty of wines that got votes off the island this summer.  You remember trying something “watery and bland” this summer?  Well, no, neither do we. 

There’s nothing like our favorite light & fruity anthems to aid our festive flashbacks, or pool side nostalgia.  So stock up with these hits and and keep the soundtrack going into the weekend.

Taste Wine Co. presents this definitive list of the top 5 jams of summer 2016.

These juicy wines are ranked on each wine's performance on the Taste Wine Co. app during the summer.  Factors include: number of ratings and stars, bottles sold, and number of individuals who submitted their rating after tasting each wine.  For any wines lacking written reviews, star rating and bottles sold became primary indicator.
