SQL TOP 1

I have a table with the following information

WINE_ID          PRICE_BRACKET          TOTAL
   
    1                          3                              6
    1                          5                              4
    1                          9                              1
    2                          7                              8
    2                          6                              2
    2                          2                              3
    3                          1                              10
    3                          2                               6
    3                          4                               1

How would I write an SQL query that would pick the price_bracket for each wine with the largest total?

SELECT * 
FROM WINETABLE  W
WHERE EXISTS (
	SELECT 1 FROM (SELECT WINE_ID, MAX(TOTAL) MTOTAL
					FROM WINETABLE 
					GROUP BY WINE_ID
				) M
