Welcome to Star Wine List
We started Star Wine List because we thought there were so many restaurant guides in the world, but not enough guides where wine lovers can find good wine bars and wine restaurants.
We launched in Stockholm in May 2017 and are now growing outside Sweden.
Selection of wine bars and restaurants
In general, we list venues that we want to go to and drink wine and invite our wine lover friends to, when they are visiting our cities. We list all kinds of wine venues ranging from small natural wine bars to fine dining restaurants.
Our more specific criteria include:
– Qualitative wine list with a coherence in line with the venue’s total offering
– High level of wine service and wine knowledge overall
– Proper temperature control and storage for 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 venues, and we are assessing them on a continuous basis. Restaurants and bars do not pay to be listed on Star Wine List. We make the editorial decision to include a venue or not.
