WineStatistics is a wine tasting community, meant to describe modern wine by quantifying its subjective qualities (visual aspect, nose and palate) into comparable data indexes, so that the end result is a easy-to-read and 100% comparable wine rating system.
We are not just a blog where we share our views on this or that wine and then move on to the next one. What we are trying to achieve here is to blend a little science (mainly descriptive statistics) with some wine, where the end result is a well structured and easy to use wine rating system. Our goal is to provide you, the reader, with a flexible tool, that will allow you to compare wines side by side. For example, you will be able to compare a wine that you have tasted, to a wine you only intend to taste or buy.
Our recommendation table is self-explanatory and offers you, the reader, an insight on our current and future wine ratings.
The WineStatistics score and recommendation are easy to read and digest:
- 95 – 99 | exceptional | (simply epic) -> a wine that can reach into the realm of perfection
- 92 – 94 | great | (a must try) -> a wine that has all the traits to become legendary
- 90 – 91 | fine | (highly recommended) -> a wine of premium quality with good potential
- 88 – 89 | good | (quite good) -> a well made wine that lacks elegance and finesse
- 75 – 87 | fair | (not bad) -> a decent wine that lacks character and structure
While the maturity level is hinting at when to uncork the said wine:
- on the rise | still young, give it some more time
- in its prime | drink it now, you’ll never regret it
- over its prime | you’ve just missed the apex
- on the decline | too late, this is now history
The purpose of our rating system is to guide you throughout the multitude of wines you may find in the wine stores, or simply help you choose the right wine for your special dinner tonight, saving you a lot of your time (and, why not, some money) in the process.
WineStatistics ratings and reviews are a freeware product, you can use and share it without further notifications, as long as you mention the source. Furthermore, feel free to change/edit our ratings according to your taste and don’t forget to enjoy the wine itself in the meantime.
We hope that our wine reviews will be of good use to you, and that you will enjoy wine as much as we do. Join us on facebook for more insight into the fascinating world of wine.

. . . by training ourselves to stop, take a breath, and pay attention to the subtle elements that distinguish one wine from any other, we learn an important lesson about life – that it’s worth taking the time to slow down and appreciate things that pleases us, from a glass of wine to a great work of art: music, literature, a sunset, a scenic view or anything else. It’s a simple way to learn to appreciate the little things in life that may in some small way enhance our enjoyment of every day . . .
