Wine list winners from seven countries meet for International Final - June 13

UK Best Medium-Sized List Brat and Trivet are among the finalists.

On Monday, June 13, Star Wine List celebrates the International Final of Star Wine List of the Year 2021-2022. After a tour through seven countries in Europe and Australia the past year, the national winners will meet for a live event in London.

"We're excited to welcome great sommelier teams from seven countries in London on Monday. We feel like we're doing the Eurovision song contest final but for wine lists, and we plan to celebrate much the same way," says Krister Bengtsson, Star Wine List's founder.

During the second international tour of Star Wine List of the Year we have so far visited the Nordics, Australia, UK, Austria and Finland. Since the last Finnish event was less than a year ago, there are actually two different Finnish participants in some categories in the international final.
