Top Wines of 2022

Comparing wines from different denominations and making a list in order of preference is remarkable difficult and unnecessary…unless you are selling magazines or have a paying subscriber membership...I have neither!

In true wine critic tradition I have decided to continue making a list of the wines I most enjoyed during this past year.

My list is not based on price, denomination or points given… it is based on WOW factor!
