50 Great Sparkling Wines of the World Awards & Scores 2022

Looking out for the best bubblies in all styles and price points from around the world in 2022? Then you have come to the right place.

Now in it’s 10th Vintage the 50 Great Sparkling Wines of the World has established itself as the bubblie oscars for both traditional and charmat method sparkling wine producers.

Each year’s competition throws up some stunning new winners. 2022 we had category winners from Australia, France (Champagne) Italy, Moldova, Portugal and Spain (Cava)

If you can get to taste these wines then we are sure you will be just as taken with them as our panel of international judges were.

Wine Sommeliers,  wine importers, restaurateurs and journalists come together for 2-3 days of blind tasting and reach an objective consensus to determine the 50 Great Sparkling Wines of the World. The competition aim is to help wine buyers and lovers discover and have confidence in those producers making exceptional sparkling wine.

Judges for the 2022 competition were as follows: Santiago Fernandez (Wine Journalist & wine buyer), Anna Casabona (Sommelier and Wine Educator), George H. Potter (Wine Writer & author of the book ‘CAVA, Spain’s Effervescent Treasure’ ), Juan Manuel Gonzalvo (Oenologist and Sommelier) & Anthony Swift (Competition Director for 12 years)

So seek out the Gold and Silver medal winners this Christmas and throughout 2022 below. You won’t be disappointed.
