BWW 2022 – The Best Wine Critics of the World have been selected

Jeb Dunnuck is the surprise Winner!

BWW – The Best Wine of The World Competition is the largest wine competition in the world, whether measured by the number of wines or consumers involved or the judges taking part. Besides annual ranking of the best wines from over 20,000 different wines, the BWW competition also ranks the best wine shops and best wine critics based.  Since 2018, BWW competition has received over 9 million votes.

The Best Wine Critic of the World -competition is part of the BWW2022 – the Best Wine of the World Competition, which was held in the world's largest wine information service – tastingbook.com. 

Tastingbook.com's international pro members – wine importers, sommeliers, wine merchants and wine producers around the world – have listed anonymously the wine critics who they consider should be on the Top 50 Wine Critic list in BWW2022. 

The 50 shortlisted wine critics received in total 314,126 votes from wine professionals and wine lovers from 63 countries during the public voting period. The competition was very tight again this year. There was only 5,000 votes’ difference between the winner and the least voted critic in the final. Independent wine critics were particularly successful. In addition to Jeb Dunnuck, there was several independent wine critics among the top 20 list – e.g., Jeannie Cho Lee MW, Allen Meadows, Markus del Monego MW, Tim Atkin MW, Richard Juhlin, Jeff Leve, Axel Probst, Andrew Caillard MW and Luca Gardini.

In BWW2022, the Best Wine Critic of the World -title was awarded to Jeb Dunnuck. 

"I'm honored to be acknowledged, and I'd like to say thank you to all who voted in the competition. We're a young company, but the team at JebDunnuck.com has put in an incredible amount of work over the past five years. We continue to grow, and I believe the best is yet to come. Knowing that there were over 340,000 votes cast means a lot. I'm also happy to see many independent critics on the list. There's an unfortunate trend in wine criticism today that finds too many well-known publications on the trade's payroll. This rightly erodes trust and does lasting damage to the industry. Wine criticism exists to help consumers find wines they like, but this requires consumers to know and trust the person (not the publication) writing the reviews. I would again like to thank you for acknowledging our contributions, and I wish you all the best in wine and life.” – Jeb Dunnuck”
