Drinks International have conducted their annual survey to find out which are the world's most admired wine brands.

They polled wine professionals, journalists, educators and MWs in 48 different countries and asked them to make three votes from the list of previous winners or to put forward their own suggestion if the name is not on the list. I am one of the panel of Academy Members and have been voting since the survey started 11 years ago.

The Top Ten Most Admired Wine Brands are:

1. Familia Torres, Spain

2. Catena, Argentina

3. Vega Sicilia, Spain

4. Henschke, Australia

5. Concha y Toro, Chile

6. Penfolds, Australia

7. Domaine de la Romanee Conti, France.

8. CVNE, Spain

9. Antinori, Italy

10. Chateau Musar, Lebanon

Four New Zealand brands were included in the Top 50. They are:

14th Felton Road

15th Villa Maria

30th Craggy Range

44th Oyster Bay
