Decanter contributors, staff and DWWA Regional Chairs nominated their top three stand-out bottles of 2022, which were then tasted blind and scored by an expert panel to determine the best and most exciting wines of 2022.

The strength and depth of Italy and an incredible flight of Chardonnay were the highlights among the 46 white wines nominated in Decanter’s Wines of the Year 2022.
