“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 were 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 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 venues ranging from natural wine bars to three-star Michelin 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. It is an editorial decision.
