Wine Reviews and Ratings

Over two thousand wine reviews! While most of our reviews focus on great wines under $20, we also offer reviews of luxury and collectible wines. As we are located in Philadelphia, most wines reviewed here are available via wine & spirits shops in Pennsylvania. Our main reviewer is Keith Wallace, the executive director and founder of the Wine School of Philadelphia.  Want to locate a specific wine? Use our PLCB Wine Finder.

Our wine reviews are conducted blind, and we do not accept free samples. Our goal is to showcase excellent wines that are also a great value to the wine consumer. All the wines we rate are small independent producers who engage in natural and sustainable winemaking practices.

Many of the wines we review are also featured in classes and wine courses held at the Wine School of Philadelphia and affiliates of the  National Wine School.
