On 23 October we will return to Denmark to celebrate the best wine lists and the teams behind them for the fourth time. All Danish restaurants and wine bars are welcome to enter, free of charge.
Star Wine List of the Year will be held in Copenhagen on 23 October.
The awards are open for all restaurants and wine bars in Denmark, free of charge.
Last day to enter was Sunday 10 September 2023.
The Jury is filled with sommelier champions:
• Heidi Mäkinen MW
• Julie Dupouy-Young
• Ronan Sayburn MS
• Christian Thorsholt Jacobsen
Categories and criteria
Star Wine List judges the wine lists in several categories such as the Best Sparkling Wine List and Best By the Glass List. These categories are the same across all of the awards. In addition, local categories may be added. We have commercial partners for certain categories, such as the Best Sparkling Wine List, presented by Nyetimber. The commercial partners are, however, never involved in the selections of finalists or winners — that is completely up to our independent jury panel.
The criteria for the jury are straightforward but not simple: Vote for the most exciting wine list representing the category.
• Grand Prix
The best list overall
• Best Long List, presented by DAOU
For wine lists with more than 600 references.
• Best Medium-Sized List
• Best Short List
• Best Austrian Wine List, presented by Austrian Wine
• Best Sparkling Wine List, presented by Nyetimber
• Best California Wine List, presented by Louis M. Martini
• Best By the Glass List
• Best Newcomer List
• Sustainable Wine List
For the Sustainable Wine List category, not only the wine list is evaluated, but also the stated actions of the venue, as described through a questionnaire in the application.
• Best Digestif List, presented by Juuls
Open for all establishments in Denmark, this category evaluates the best post dinner spirits list.
The winners in the international categories will qualify for our International Final in June 2024, where they will face off with the category winners from other countries and continents.
More categories, the jury and other news will be presented in this post later.
