Things To Look Out For In High-Quality Wine

It should be that time of the month again when you receive your long-awaited wine bottle for your monthly wine subscription, but it can be easy to overlook the quality of what you receive when the quantity of what you have is overwhelming.

That said, how do you pick out the high-quality wines from those that are just normal? After all, we all want to have only the best, don’t we? In this little guide that we have, we will give you some things to look out for in high-quality wines to make sure that you are only drinking the best wine. Let’s get into it, shall we?

Place of Origin

Many people tend to overlook where the wine they drink came from but this can greatly impact the quality because of the way grapes are grown in certain parts and regions of the world.

We suggest going for the wines that come from very well-known wine making regions like Bordeaux, Burgundy, Napa Valley, or Barossa Valley because these regions have very strict regulations and standards that make sure the wines coming from there are of high quality.

Grape Variety

Much like the place of origin of these wines, the grapes which the wines are made of also play a very huge part in how they will end up tasting. Some fun fact that we can give you is that the famous names like Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, and Chardonnay are actually the variety of grapes that their similarly named wine types are named after.

We mentioned these grapes varieties because they usually give you the best quality wines, especially when they are grown in the right conditions.


The vintage year represents the year in which the grapes were picked and, to some wine experts, ertain years will produce extraordinary wines because of the climatic circumstances of that year, which were apparently very good for wine. We recommend doing quick research on some of the more famous vintage years that are well-loved by wine experts and making that the basis of your decision.

Appearance and Aroma

The appearance of the wine will also be a way to tell of its quality– a good rule of thumb is to stick to red wines that are vibrant and bright in color and white wines that are pale straw or golden yellow in color. You should avoid wines that have sediment when you pour them or that appear cloudy because these are signs that it has some quality issues.

Additionally, the scent of the wines will tell you if it is well made because good wines should have a balanced and non-overpowering aroma. Signature scents of quality wine often include fruity and flowery ones, as well as scents of spices and oak.


So with that said, we are finished with the things that you should look out for, hopefully this will help you in identifying the quality wines from the bad ones. Until then, happy drinking!
