about us

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 (statistics) with some wine, where the end result is a well structured and easy to use wine statistic. 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 tasting results are easy to read and digest:

  • 75 – 87 | fair | (nothing special)
  • 88 – 89 | good | (recommended)
  • 90 – 91 | fine | (highly recommended)
  • 92 – 94 | great | (a must try)
  • 95 – 99 | brilliant | (simply epic)

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 to find the one wine you were searching for so long, or simply help you choose the right wine from the multitude found in the wine stores, saving a lot of your time (and, why not, 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, fell 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.

a bit about the author

I am a certified sommelier, licensed in statistics, with a master degree in economics and a background in machine learning, but overall – a proud father and a wine enthusiast, who seeks to explore the world of wine, trying to discover its most kept secrets.

. . . 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 . . .
(c) The WineStatistics ratings are based solely on our own knowledge of the world of wine and on our personal wine tastes, which may, or may not, differ from yours – the reader. There are no absolutes of right and wrong in wine appreciation.

  1. Hey guys, very nice review of the Virgin Cricova wine which I’ve been presenting at lots of tastings working in the Cellars of the same company.
    BTW, where are you from?



  2. Salutare baieti! In primul si primul rind sinteti bravo facind asemenea review-uri bune pentru imaginea vinurilor din Moldova. Cu toate astea, ar fi si mai bine sa faceti care va rectificari in vocabularul pe care-l folositi. Scuze, in caz ca-s prea exigent. Dar un feedback pozitiv valoreaza cit o sticla de Vin Virgin. :))) Sau poate mai mult chiar. O cutie, cine stie… Deci, ar fi si mai “clean” review-ul vostru daca ati schimba termenul “gustatory” cu un altul, gen “tasting” si “maturation” cu “aging”.



    • Alex, mersi pentru feedback!
      Vom lua in calcul acest feedback si vom consulta limbajul oenologic sa vedem unde am gresit si cum am putea evita termenii mentionati mai sus
      Mersi mult.


  3. Foarte frumos sistemul. Mi-ar placea sa vad cat mai multi bautori de vin folosind asemenea scheme pentru a evalua vinurile pe care le beau, sa treaca peste “mi-a placut si gata”.


    • Mersi pentru apreciere, asta si a fost intentia – sa venim cu un sistem detaliat si in acelasi tim simplu si ‘user friendly’. 🙂
      Chiar ne bucura comentariul tau si sa stii ca berbecutio.blogspot.com este unul din blogurile din Romania pe care il urmarim regualt si sitematic (de la tine am aflat ce e aia Davino si Oprisor ‘eticheta rosie’). 😉
      Takk, Romania!


    • Thank you for the feedback.
      The search tool is not yet designed.
      For the moment you can use the in-browser search on the ‘wine rating’ page, as there are displayed all the reviewed wines.


  4. Salutare baieti. Multumesc mult pentru lucrul pe care il depuneti pe acest site.
    Eu demult stau in Porto, Portugalia. Lucrez cu vinuri de Porto si Douro Valley Wines. Is fantastice. Am vrut sa va intreb de unde ati facut rost de Quinta de La Rosa (curiozitate).


  5. Cool site, man. We are opening some Echinoctius tonight, and your pages came up in my Google search. I am off Facebook but am happy to glance your site over again and check it out more thoroughly. I will be on the lookout for some more of your top reds.
