Congratulations to these wineries!  The median score for all wineries currently in our evaluation database (over 2,200) is 48, so these sites deserve recogition.

You can get your winery's overall score e-mailed to you (free of charge) to see where you stand.

If you'd like to see a statistical picture, this score distribution offers a better idea of how scores are grouped. For example, a score of 55 actually places a site roughly in the top 20 percent. In other words, wineries are pretty tightly clustered around the median of 48 (a bell curve, but with a sharp peak in the middle).
