    Best Short List of the Year Sweden 2024

    As the name implies, the Stockholm restaurant and wine bar Babette is a feast in itself. A place for lively discussions over delicious small plates and some of Stockholm's most tasty pizzas. But don't miss the other plates from the chef's menu. In summer the crowd spills out onto a small terrace.

    Sustainable Wine List of the Year South Africa, presented by WWF Conservation Champions 2023

    La Colombe is South African fine dining at its best with white table cloths, a horde of service staff, refined detail everywhere and set on the mountain side surrounded by a forest of blue gum trees on Silvermist Wine Estate at the end of a steep and winding road leading up from the top of Constantia Nek. This is terrain that reassures 4x4 drivers that they made the right vehicle choice, don’t try to walk it up. The food and service is top notch and the wine service is quirky, showing confidence and personality. You will always have a good time here.

    International Best Short List of the Year, presented by DAOU 2023

    Embla truly embodies the essence of Melbourne wine bars. This small intimate wine bar takes bookings, but most of the time, this is a place kept for walk-ins. This reflects the true spirit of walking by and deciding, on a whim, to drink a good bottle by yourself at the bar and engage with the staff or walk in with your mate for a lunch of thoughtful and satisfying snacks. Because of the nature of the bar, with its walk-in culture, they don't have a huge wine list but instead a selection of wines by the glass at the back of the food menu.

    Best Medium-Sized List of the Year Finland, presented by Louis M. Martini 2024

    BasBas was born out of a love for hospitality and since its beginning has been one of the most popular restaurants in Helsinki. Going to BasBas is like going to the home of a good friend who only wants the best for you. The wine list offers adventures whether it’s a juicy wine outside of a famous appellation or a sought-after classic from one of the wine world’s established producers that you’re after.
