Daily Wines PRIZES: Our editors TOP picks from the 2018 guide to California wines

The purpose of a wine guide is that of tasting wines produced by the selected wineries and then choosing the best among them. We believe that it’s not only important to select the best wines but also to identify those that offer a healthy quality-price ratio.

It’s our job to look beyond the usual names and to share something truly special and interesting with our readership: Wines our readers can enjoy frequently because they aren’t prohibitively expensive.

It’s easy to verify whether famous labels and wines are good or not. It’s much more complicated to discover wines from certain areas or producers that represent something new and unique, something you might not already find at your local wine shop or restaurant.

And that’s why the editors of the Slow Wine Guide to the Wines of California 2018 have selected the following DAILY WINES for you.
