TheWineBuyingGuide.com's Top 25 Wines of 2017
2017 is officially over, and we've enjoyed some fantastic wines. In winter we enjoyed rich Cabernet Sauvignon and toasty Chardonnay. When spring arrived, it was officiallly rosé season (okay, it's always rosé season). The summer was all about every type of wine, with crisp white winse to keep us cool and fruity red wines to pair with every summer food we could think of.
And then the fall and holiday season ushered in even more excuses to enjoy a glass (or two). We transitioned to wines that pair well with turkey and roast vegetables, and ended the year with a wealth of sparkling wines for every occasion.
It's been quite a year, and it's difficult to narrow down our favorite wines! But we did take a look at the winse that our readers absolutely loved this year, and we're sharing them with you now. Please enjoy these top 25 red, white, rosé, and sparkling wines from 2017.
Top Red Wines of 2017
The best red wines of 2017 included a lot of old favorites. Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon are some of the favorite varietals, perhaps because they go so well with food. These wines are all delicious, and most are easy to find at your local grocery store or wine shop. We expect to continue enjoying these wines well into 2018.

This list is a fun combination of classic white wines and sweet wines with a little personality.

Featuring it on this list brings back great memories of all of the great wines we tried in 2017.

2017 was a fantastic year for sparkling wines! We featured a lot of Prosecco and Cava, because they're both great alternatives to more expensive sparkling wines.
