Another 100 list

Online wine retailer wine.com released its list of the 100 most-bought wines from its site in the past year.

And the number one wine was Veramonte Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva 2006. A wine I’ve never heard of. In fact, it seems as if all the Veramonte bottlings make the list. The wine is distributed by Southern Wine & Spirits, the distributing behemoth, which means the output must be substantial. And it seems they’re doing a good job.

But what I liked about the wine.com website was the simple visual way they give basic info about the wine.
