|How is the value number determined?
The value is determined by taking the average retail price of a wine with a given score and dividing it by the average retail price for all wines with that score. If the average value = 100%, then anything below that represents a better value. Anything above, not so good.
How do you use WineBlueBook?
For any given score, the best value wine appears at the top. The average price for that score appears at the bottom.
A note about wine scores
Do scores matter? Yes. But no more than personal taste. So why care about scores? Because scores drive prices. And in the absence of personal experience, you must weigh quality (scores) against price to make purchase decisions. WineBlueBook give you an objective tool for doing just that.
