“Star Wine List is simply a brilliant idea. I cannot think of a better tool for any wine lover to discover the best places where to enjoy attractive wines. It is a service that not only provides an outstanding search tool but also a key to very valuable inside information that will help tremendously to anyone interested in wine and gastronomy.”
Rubén Sanz Ramiro, Head Sommelier PM & Vänner
Welcome to Star Wine List
We started Star Wine List because we thought there are so many restaurant guides in the world, but not enough guides where wine lovers can find good wine bars and wine restaurants. And because we found it difficult to find the wine lists of those places, and to search for our favourite wines in restaurants.
We launched in Stockholm in May 2017 and are now growing outside Sweden.
Selection of wine bars and restaurants
In general, we want to list venues that we want to go to and drink wine, and invite our wine lover friends to. These are the places that we have included on Star Wine List today, and these are the places we want to add in the future.
Our more specific criteria include:
– Qualitative wine list with a coherence in line with the venue’s total offering
– Logical and well written wine list, in line with the venue’s total offering
– High level of wine service and wine knowledge overall
– Proper temperature control and storage for the wines in larger cellars
– Qualitative stemware in line with the venue’s offering
Is your favorite place not included? Everyone is welcome to give us a tip about places, and we are assessing venues on a continuous basis. The wine bars and restaurants which we think are suitable for us will be listed by Star Wine List.
