Wine Enthusiast Top 100 Wines of 2018 (The Enthusiast 100) at ProWein 2019 in Düsseldorf

Today I want to show you which wines from the Wine Enthusiast Top 100 Wines of 2018 list will be present at ProWein 2019 in Düsseldorf. I was able to identify 35 out of 100, so here are their coordinates at this year’s fair.

The Enthusiast 100 is the apex of our yearly round-ups, offering an impressive collection that represents some of the top wines reviewed this year. This list of high-scorers showcases still and sparkling picks, rosés and even sweet wines. Beyond their high numerical ratings, these boast excellent quality-to-price ratios, drinkability and availability, with an average score of just under 93 points and an average price of $36.

You can also check out my post about Wine Spectator’s Top 100 Wines at ProWein 2019 Düsseldorf.

I will be attending this year’s ProWein event as a photographer, so plenty of photos will follow later in March.

If you don’t know what to check out at ProWein this year, this list might give you some pointers. Onward!
