New York, NY (November 12, 2012) – After tasting more than 17,000 wines from countries around the world, the editors at Wine Spectator will release their much-anticipated list of the Top 100 Wines of 2012. The countdown begins at WineSpectator.com on Wednesday, Nov. 14.

The unveiling of the Top 100 takes place during a period of free access to all the features of WineSpectator.com, which runs from Nov. 14-27. Visitors will be able search our database of more than 270,000 wine ratings, read senior editors’ blogs and explore the world’s most comprehensive Web site for wine. Special free premiums will also be offered to visitors to the site during this open-access period.

The Top 100 countdown will take place over four days, beginning with the Top 10 wines:

November 15: Wines 5, 4, 3, 2
November 16: #1 Wine of the Year

The Top 100 wines are chosen from a pool of more than 17,000 wines reviewed in 2012 by Wine Spectator editors in the magazine’s independent blind tastings. Four criteria are used to make the selections: quality (represented by score); value (reflected by release price); availability (measured by cases made or imported); and what Wine Spectator calls the “X-factor”–the excitement generated by a rising-star producer, a benchmark wine or a significant milestone for a wine region.

These 100 wines reflect significant trends, recognize outstanding producers and spotlight successful regions as well as vintages around the world. The full list will be published in the Dec. 31, 2012-Jan. 15, 2013, issue of Wine Spectator magazine, on newsstands beginning Dec. 4.
