The assessment is carried out by professional tasters or wine critic in the form of points such as the 20-point or 100-point system and also with symbols such as bottles, grapes, stars and glasses, in which case the maximum number is usually between three and five. The works listed below have different concepts and contents, but they all have in common that wines are described ( wine address ) and assessed and evaluated ( wine review ). The boundaries between wine journal / magazine with a wine evaluation section and "correct" wine guide with a focus on producers with their wines are blurred.
