Wine.com Releases 2016 Wine.com 100

SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Wine.com, the nation's leading online wine retailer, today announced the tenth annual Wine.com 100. The only list based exclusively on customer preferences, the Wine.com 100 reflects the top wines purchased during the first 11 months of 2016. With over 25,000 unique wines to choose from this year, the list provides insight into consumer's online wine-buying patterns. The complete 2016 Wine.com 100 list is available online at www.wine.com/100.

2016 Wine.com 100 highlights:

  • A white wine nabs the #1 spot:  While the majority of wine sold on Wine.com is red wine, a Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand sold the most bottles in 2016. This highlights the power of a great brand at a fantastic value. It is the first time a white wine – and a wine from New Zealand – secured the top spot.
  • Cabernet remains King.  26 wines from the Cabernet Sauvignon grape are in the top ranks of Wine.com popularity, while Pinot Noir has 12 wines and Red Blends and Sauvignon Blanc represent 7 spots each.
  • Half are imports.  Matching the overall consumer interest at Wine.com, the Wine.com 100 has 50 imported wines featured, led by Italy 13, France 9, and Chile 7. In domestic wines, California secured 43 spots and Washington State garnered 7, with California's Meiomi 2014 Pinot Noir ranking #5.

"In the past year, our customers bought 25,000 unique labels from 4,500 producers making Wine.com the world's largest wine store," said Michael Osborn, Founder and VP of Merchandising.  "Today we offer 6,000 wines from California, 3,000 from France, and 2,000 from Italy.  This year, we've expanded our Live Chat Sommelier Service to 7 days/week, to help our customers navigate this huge selection and find something that suits their individual needs."

"It's such an honor to be so well regarded by Wine.com and all our fans of the Brancott Estate Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2015," says Patrick Materman, Chief winemaker at Brancott Estate. "We knew Marlborough was going to produce some pretty special wines when we first planted Sauvignon Blanc back in 1975, and it's rewarding to see our wines being enjoyed by so many people across the US."
