15/09/2020 2020 Sommeliers Choice Awards unveils the best wines that Los Angeles consumers can drink at restaurants, bars and hotels.

Here is a list of top wines that are chosen by leading sommeliers of the USA that you can order in your favorite restaurants. These hand picked selections of wines have been chosen by a leading panel of judges that includes top restaurant wine buyers, master sommeliers and lead sommeliers of the USA. The number one question that judges asked while judging was will the customer order this and will they drink a second glass of this for the price it has?

So if you are wondering which wine to order when you go to a restaurant, look no further and ask your sommelier or restaurant staff below wines that have won the top category by the variety in the wine by glass scoring.

The wines are judged in five categories: food parability, typicity, quality, value, and packaging.

Here are the top 5 wines to consider if you are looking to add new wines to your restaurants.

Wine of the Year - 2014 Kalaris, Pinot Noir from the United States winning 98 points and double gold medal.
