Krister Bengtsson

Founder, Publisher

Krister Bengtsson is a Swedish journalist and entrepreneur with a background in both the media and wine industries. In 2017, he founded Star Wine List as he thought there were so many restaurant guides in the world, but not enough wine guides. Krister is also an investor in the British wine bar and magazine Noble Rot.

Now based in Stockholm, Sweden, Krister has lived in France and Spain and loves going south over winter.
