Wine Spectator was a little late to the game in releasing its Top Value Wines of 2022 so we weren’t able to include it in our annual list of Top 10 Best Wine Values of 2022. That may have been by design to clear the field and take the marketing glory, but in any case, here’s the list.
As with the bottles listed in our previous article, US dominates once again with 6 of the 10 spots and Argentina, France, Italy, and Spain take a single spot each. Wine Spectator’s list assembled from a pool of wines they rated 90+ points, but under $40. And if you’re still trying to figure out what 90+ points means for Wine Spectator, be sure to check out our handy Wine Rating Encyclopedia. Happy Hunting.
