Wines of the year (1) Instagram favourites

instagramfavourites

How do you decide which your favourite wines were from the year past? Difficult.

One way is to let others decide. I have quite a few instagram followers, and it’s interesting to see which wines that I post are the most popular.

There are lots of confounders here. If I post a nice picture that looks good it might get more likes. Or if I post at certain times of the day it may have an effect.

I have not included bottles that I haven’t drunk (you could take photos of a posh cellar or wine shop shelf). Also, not all wines I tried got posted, and some got posted as compilations. Also, I had more followers at the end of the year than the beginning.

Still, it’s fun compiling a list like this. Some real surprises. Number of likes indicated in brackets, and I’ve included all wines that had 200 likes or more.
