Wine Rating Guide

Wines reviewed on exploring.wine will be awarded a star rating, to help our users to determine their own interest in purchasing a reviewed wine. Readers are encouraged to pay attention to the descriptions, as well as the star ratings.

Our star ratings are as follows:

***** Top of class wine; a atherial expeience in a bottle, worth seeking out to purchase
**** An outstanding wine; a special experience in a bottle, request at your local wine shop
*** A good wine that rises above its peer group; offers notable satisfaction for your average evening
** An acceptable and unoffensive wine; average and nothing to go out and search for
* Wine to avoid or our sample was damaged

Wine received as a sample will be noted as such on the review.

I will make a reasonable attempt to obtain another bottle to rate, for any review that is marked as damaged or corked.
