100 Most Iconic Wine Estates

The challenge we set ourselves was not simply to find 100 Iconic Wine Estates in the vast world of wine. It was to whittle down a mighty list of extraordinarily talented wine producers to a perfectly balanced century. This involved some truly brutal battles – Chateau against Chateau, Domaine versus Domaine. It was at times agonising but always fun, and with 100 Iconic Wine Estates complete, we are delighted to present it to you.
The wine world is ever-changing, but these estates can be relied upon to make stellar wines years in, years out – they are the shimmering bedrock of the wine world. Showcasing an incredible array of grape varieties, regions and countries, with hypnotic aromas and devastating flavours there are sublime creations from everyone chosen.
We hope that this selection inspires you to experience what we have tasted and that this drives you to further populate your own wine racks with these legendary bottles.

Reviewing our 100 Most Iconic list …

We are requesting your input

It was in 2013 when our 100 Most Iconic list was collated and as the wine world has seen many changes and further development we are wishing to review our list during 2021. This will without doubt spark many lively debates amongst the team as any new contenders will inevitably lead to another estate being excluded.
To support us with our challenge we invite you to inform us of the Iconic Wine Estates you feel worthy of inclusion and we will be sure to send you in our newsletter announcing the final list
