TOP 100 Wines of 2018


Each year for a decade, I've been compiling a list of the best 100 wines, under $20 (price varies by retailer), that I have reviewed during that calendar year.
The wines must score 89 points or higher on my sister site, WineScores.ca.
While the task hasn't gotten easier, I've managed to work with a system to make compilation easier. During the past decade, I've become busier in my career, writing for a number of wonderful publications, which hold my attention, ergo, my own site lags behind.
However, even though it is a couple weeks later than usual, I promised to get this list up in time for your holiday shin-digs and gatherings.

Happy Holidays all!
Cheers, Daenna

WineDiva.ca was launched prior to WineScores, in February 2004. WineDiva is the alter ego of Daenna Van Mulligen. She wears a cork tiara and is proof that a girl can have her w(h)ine and drink it too! WineDiva.ca is a tongue-in-cheek approach to a very serious passion for all things wine. WineDiva’s goal is to make wine fun, subtly educational & deviously inspirational. Vintage reciting wine snobs need not apply. WineDiva is painting the wine world pink and drinking it all in, and her glass is always (at least) half-full.

WineScores is the more serious follow up to WineDiva.ca. WineScores was born from the demand to see wine writer Daenna Van Mulligen provide scores on her wine reviews. These are numerical scores based on a 100 point scale – an internationally recognized form of rating wines. These numbers provide a snapshot for consumers on how the wine reviewer views the overall quality of the wine. For more information on scoring wine, go to “about”.
