RJS Wine Kits in WineMaker’s Top 100 Kits of 2020

The annual list of the Top 100 Kits was published in Winemaker magazine’s Dec 2020/Jan 2021 issue, and RJ Spagnols wine kits once again dominated the list with 33 total kits in the top 100.

The list is based on the average scores given by judges of the top-performing kit entries in the annual Winemaker International Amateur Winemaker Competition. The kits on the Top 100 list had the highest average scores in the 2020 competition among the 767 kit entries.

The top overall RJS kit was the Cru Specialty Pomme Tatin, coming in at #2 on the Top 100 Kits list. Repeating its success as the #3 overall kit from last year, the Cru Specialty Crème Brûlée Dessert Wine once again secured the #3 spot in 2020.

RJS Wine Kits accounted for 33 of the Top 100 Wine Kits of 2020

Perhaps most impressive was the performance of the Cru Specialty Toasted Caramel Dessert Wine, which jumped from #61 in 2019 to #13 in 2020. The popular Grand Cru Pinot Noir also climbed from #38 in 2019 to #14 in 2020.
