Exploring Wine Reviews using Pandas
There are a lot of wine enthusiasts all over the world
In this blog, I explored the wine review data using Pandas.
The code for the “Wine Review” data has been made public on my Github here.
I am a Professional Engineer(P.Eng) and a Project Management Professional (PMP)with a strong engineering background in Thermal Energy, Oil and Gas Processing, Water and Wastewater Treatment Industry, and over 8 years of experience working in engineering consultancies.
I am a self-motivated, lifetime learner critical thinker who is passionate about data with skills in programming, and statistical analysis, my greatest strength lies in squeezing information out of data to derive insight, come up with creative out-of-the-box solutions and add values.
For this blog, we have used the Kaggle data set —Wine Reviews.
The dataset contains 130k wine reviews with variety, location, winery, price, and description.
Looking at the dataset
Here is a glimpse of the dataset.
There are approximately 13k rows of data and 13 columns to analyze.
Focussing on the Italian or French wines with 90+ points
reviews.loc[(reviews.country == 'Italy') | (reviews.country == 'French') & (reviews.points >= 90)]
There are a lot of wines approximately 19.5k rows of data and 13 columns to analyze.
For an economical wine buyer, what is the “best bargain”? Find the best bargain wine with the highest points-to-price ratio in the dataset.
bargain_idx = (reviews.points / reviews.price).idxmax()bargain_wine = reviews.loc[bargain_idx, 'title']bargain_wine
'Bandit NV Merlot (California)'
How many times have the wines have been mentioned as tropical or fruity
There are only so many words you can use when describing a bottle of wine. Is a wine more likely to be “tropical” or “fruity”? Count the number of times each of these two words appears in the description column in the dataset.
n_trop = reviews.description.map(lambda desc: "tropical" in desc).sum()
n_fruity = reviews.description.map(lambda desc: "fruity" in desc).sum()
descriptor_counts = pd.Series([n_trop, n_fruity], index=['tropical', 'fruity'])
Most common wine review
Who are the most common wine reviewers in the dataset?
Name: taster_twitter_handle, Length: 15, dtype: int64
Most expensive wine and what does it cost
Which is the most expensive wine in the dataset and what is its price?
expensive_idx = (reviews.price).idxmax()#By default, it returns the index for the maximum value in each column.
expensive_wine = reviews.loc[bargain_idx, 'title']
'Château les Ormes Sorbet 2013 Médoc'
Re-checking the wine and ist cost
reviews.loc[reviews.title == ‘Château les Ormes Sorbet 2013 Médoc’]
Least expensive wine variety
k.sort_values(by=['min'], ascending = True)
Average reviewer score
What is the average review score is given out by that reviewer along with the reviewer?

Susan Kostrzewa 86.609217
Virginie Boone 89.213379

Combination of countries and varieties is the common
k=reviews.groupby(['country', 'variety']).variety.agg([len])k.sort_values(by='len', ascending=False)
Country with maximum points for its wine
Roger Voss 25514

Most common wine producing region
What are the most common wine-producing regions? Create a Series counting the number of times each value occurs in the region_1 field. This field is often missing data, so replace missing values with Unknown. Sort in descending order.
Napa Valley 4480
Southern Highlands 1
Maury Sec 1
Name: region_1, Length: 1230, dtype: int64
Wine review is an awesome dataset and I learned a lot after analyzing it. I hope you give the dataset a try and analyze it.
