Rating Wines

Catavino only recommends wines that we stand behind.

If a full note is on our site, it is considered “Recommended“.

In special cases, we’ll include notes that state, “Seek This Wine Out” or “Exceptional“. These indications are only used when a wine goes above and beyond our expectations for it’s style.

From time to time, we’ll include notes on wines that are “interesting” but not really worth seeking out. In these cases, the wines will have a reason to be mentioned, either because they are made from a “lost grape variety” or fit a “unique style”.
