Save the date! On May 23 we return to Austria with our Star Wine List of the Year celebration, during the last day of Vievinum. ”We are excited to once again celebrate the great wine lists of Austria and look forward to meeting people in person in Vienna again,” says Krister Bengtsson, Star Wine List’s founder.
For the upcoming Star Wine List of the Year awards in Austria, Star Wine List is proud to partner with the website and sommelier community Kalk & Kegel.
The winners of Star Wine List of the Year 2022 will be revealed during a live event in Vienna on May 23. It will be held at Volksgarten in front of Hofburg, with Dorli Muhr and her PR agency Wine+Partners, who are hosting their annual "Christmas party" there the same night.
"Each year, the week before Christmas, we do our Weinachtel party at the agency office. As we could not party for two years, we have decided to hold our Christmas party on May 23," says Dorli Muhr.
The awards will be presented by Krister Bengtsson and Star Wine List's Ambassador Manager Liora Levi.
