Over a week, a small group of judges swirled, sipped and discussed with vigour which winemakers should make the list of  “The world’s best 50 young winemakers” of 2021


The results of that hard work has now been announced and 50 of the best young wine labels and winemakers on the rise worldwide have been recognised. The judges were on the lookout for makers “advancing the conversation on wine’’�, as well as innovating and contributing to the wine community, landscape and environment. 
They noticed less familiar grape varieties are popping up more and more, as are drought-tolerant vines, with producers increasingly looking for obscure grapes to carve out a niche in varying climates and geologies.
