2022 AWEsome wines

2022 AWEsome Wines – available now!

Hot off the Press! The 2022 100 AWEsome Wines from the Association of Wine Educators (AWE) is out now. It contains 100 wines of excellent quality and value recommended by members of the Association.* And after all these years, it’s still an inflation-busting price: free!

What’s the catch? There isn’t one. We’re wine educators, so it’s what we do. AWE members are professionals that taste and teach wine. Quite often, we drink it too. This guide has 100 wines we rate as being of exceptional quality and value. The wines are available in the UK at supermarkets, independent wine merchants and online websites, so there should be no difficulty finding them.

There are sure to be wines for every taste and pocket. So I often use it to source wines, whether for tastings or pleasure.

I’m a longstanding member of the AWE, so I’ve chipped in as usual with three stunning examples, all of which have wowed at tastings and masterclasses.


This year the brochure is available in two formats, to suit your preference:

a) A traditional hard copy colour brochure – I’ll be giving these to attendees at my UK wine tastings during this year until stocks run out. There’s a QR code for friends and family to use too.

b) A modern, dedicated website – go to It’s handy to bookmark the website on your browser on a mobile device. Then call it up when out wine shopping; the link will take you to the exact wine!


As usual, the brochure is in easy-to-use sections. Start with Under £12.00 in white, rosé and red. Follow this with wines £12.00 – £25.00, again in white, rosé and red. After that, Sparkling wines under £35.00, followed by Fortified wines and even Sake.

Why wait – buy some AWEsome Wines right now!


*Please note that this is a UK wine guide. All the wines are currently available in the UK, but I can’t promise availability elsewhere. For previous guides, start here.

And now, for 2023, go here.
