    California Wine List of the Year Denmark, presented by Louis M. Martini 2023

    Alchemist first opened at Østerbro in Copenhagen, in a spot with very limited capacity. Hereafter Rasmus Munk and the team got the chance to extend Alchemist, so they moved to Refshaleøen and a much bigger space. Here you will be dining under a dome which changes as long as the evening moves along. The dining experience will take you through 50 different servings, and Alchemist shortly after re-opening awarded two stars in the Michelin Guide

    Address: 39 Barnet Street, Gardens, Cape Town

    Best Long List of the Year South Africa, presented by Winterhalter 2023

    Aubergine Restaurant is centrally located in Cape Town in the inner-city suburb Gardens in a previous private house dating back almost 200 years. The interior is warm and welcoming with plenty of yellowwood furniture throughout the venue and a cozy fireplace for winter. The cooking is terrific and the chef owner Harald Bresselschmidt understands wine evolution better than many sommeliers and is a firm promoter and supporter of sommellerie in South Africa. The result is a remarkable (and mature) cellar of goodies for a small restaurant.

    Address: 27 O'Connell Street, Sydney

    International Grand Prix, presented by Domaine Laroche 2023

    When Bentley moved into the grand dining room of the Radisson Blue Hotel in Sydney city, it evolved from neighbourhood wine bar to CBD heavy hitter, and now oozes style and confidence. The restaurant is very much it's own space within the hotel – black steel scaffolding lends a moody yet polished warehouse vibe that’s worlds away from the hotel lobby. The offering is multifaceted; you can sit at the bar and sample from a short snacks menu, or opt for the main dining room and choose between à la carte or degustation. Slick industrial design, inventive food and an extensive wine list ensure it...

    Address: Friedrichstraße 218, Berlin

    International Grand Prix, presented by Domaine Laroche 2023

    All this restaurant's produce come from the area of Berlin and its neighbouring regions; If it does not grow around here, it won't be on your plate. That is the simple philosophy for this venue, one of the best addresses in Berlin. You will either have a seat at the long table by the kitchen or, if you're a group, at your own long table with the host himself. Once inside, you will forget that you are indeed a few steps away from Checkpoint Charlie. Please reserve your seat well in advance!
