Press Release

San Francisco, CA – Wine.com, the nation’s leading online wine retailer, today announced its 13th annual “Wine.com 100” and unveiled its inaugural “50 Most Intriguing Wines” list.

Reflecting the top wines purchased on the website during 2019, the Wine.com 100 is the industry’s only list based exclusively on consumer purchasing behavior. With over 41,000 vintage-specific wines purchased at Wine.com over the past year, from 440 growing regions and 96 grape varieties, the Top 100 is an exclusive group representing the top 0.2% of wines offered on Wine.com.

This year, New Zealand’s Kim Crawford 2018 Sauvignon Blanc topped the list, after ranking as high as #2 in 2009. “We are deeply proud that Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc is the #1-selling wine at Wine.com, and owe this success to our devoted fans,” says Julie Rossman, VP of Marketing for Kim Crawford. “Every day for the past 20 years, our team has dedicated themselves to consistently delivering Kim Crawford’s distinctive taste and high quality that has earned wine lovers’ trust and loyalty, and this achievement only makes us work harder. We raise a glass to this great honor from our partner Wine.com, made possible by all of you.”

Last year’s top wine, Charles Smith’s Substance Cabernet Sauvignon, appeared in positions #7 and #8 as the brand, like others, sold two vintages during the year, and continues to hold strong interest from Wine.com customers.

For the company’s latest feature, the “50 Most Intriguing Wines of the Year”, the wine professionals at Wine.com sought to highlight wines from the company’s vast “long-tail” assortment, that many Wine.com consumers may not have yet discovered. Wine.com merchants considered a variety of factors, including a wine’s uniqueness, regional specificity, quality-to-price ratio, production size and other factors that make the wine interesting to the Wine.com team.

“The inspiration for the Most Intriguing Wines of the Year list came after we introduced our “Most Interesting” sort feature in February,” said Michael Osborn, Founder & Executive Vice President of Wine.com. “This new way to sort incorporates factors well beyond the singular popularity order that we have used for decades. Our “Most Interesting” sort uses a combination of proprietary factors and objective details about the wine to determine its unique rank within the assortment. Without this feature, many of our customers may not have discovered Txakolina Rose, Albarino from Uruguay, or new brands like Chile’s Vina Vik, all examples of wine that made our intriguing list.”

The 10 most popular sellers on the Wine.com 100 this year:

  1. Kim Crawford 2018 Sauvignon Blanc
  2. Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label Brut
  3. Meiomi 2017 Pinot Noir
  4. La Marca Prosecco
  5. Kendall-Jackson 2017 Vintner’s Reserve Chardonnay

  7. Substance 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon
  8. Substance 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon
