What is a Top Value wine?

We all want the best that our dollar can buy. The Real Review's Top Value lists identify the best value-for-money wines up to $25.

The way to judge value-for-money is to balance the scores against the prices. We calculate price-rating benchmarks for all major wine styles across tens of thousands of wines and wine regions to award Top Value to those that achieve a great price-to-quality ratio. A minimum of 15 wines must be tasted within a category for those wines to be eligible for a Top Value award.

Quickly spot Top Value wines by looking for the red Top Value symbol. Bookmark this page to check back whenever you’re looking to buy value wines, as the lists are continuously updated with new tastings.

To be eligible for a Top Value award,
recommended retail price must have been supplied along with the wine sample.
