    International Sparkling Wine List of the Year, presented by Nyetimber 2023

    Just a 45-minute train ride outside of Manhattan is one of the greatest culinary destinations in New York. Chef Dan Barber’s seasonal tasting menu is hyper local, sourcing most ingredients from their 80-acre farm. Sustainability and low waste have always been on the forefront of this restaurant, so much so that they even launched Row 7, a business that sells seeds for more flavorful and sustainable vegetables. The wine list is beautifully curated with a focus on both classic old-world regions and championing small producers from exciting new world regions. There is an impressive selection of...

    Digestif List of the Year Denmark, presented by Juuls 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: Mannerheimintie 56, Helsinki

    International Sparkling Wine List of the Year, presented by Nyetimber 2023

    This classic Helsinki-based French brasserie is well-known for its extensive wine list that focuses particularly on the wines of Burgundy, Piedmont, Jura, and Germany. Back vintages and various single vineyard selections are available for those ready to spend a bit more, while there are also various options by the glass. Speaking with the staff often results in them opening yet more bottles. The menu combines seasonal Finnish flavours with classic French cooking and all the dishes let the wines shine. Downstairs there is a venue space that can be rented separately, and you can also buy a share...

    International Sparkling Wine List of the Year, presented by Nyetimber 2023

    Ensue is one of the early pioneers of the fine-dining restaurant scene in Shenzhen and the first of the city's restaurants to make a name for itself on the international stage. As an enthusiastic advocate of Chinese ingredients, it proudly showcases the high quality of locally sourced produce using Western cooking techniques. The award-winning wine selection is sophisticated and consists of more than 700 bottles covering most wine regions. If you are looking for a decent place to enjoy a nice bottle of wine on its own, the lounge upstairs, Alcove, offers the same wine list as Ensue and would...

Located by Cavendish Square just a short walk from Oxford Street, this gorgeous brasserie has a relaxed but high-end approach to wine. As for the name “Les 110 de Taillevent”, the 110 refers to the numbers of wines available by the glass, in either 70ml or 125ml. To go with the 110 wines (or many more by the bottle), you'll find 30 a la carte dishes.

  8. Phone: +49 30 25940610

    Address: Friedrichstraße 218, Berlin

    International Sparkling Wine List of the Year, presented by Nyetimber 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!

  9. Phone: +46 8 676 58 00

    Address: Operahuset, Karl XII:s torg, Stockholm

    International Sparkling Wine List of the Year, presented by Nyetimber 2023

    Operakällaren in Stockholm’s Opera House is probably the most beautiful dining room in Sweden. And the service is like a scene from the Opera stage, professional, classic and warm. The menu is French-inspired, classical and executed at the highest level (one Michelin star).

  10. Phone: +61 8 6255 5587

    Address: Crown Perth, Great Eastern Highway, Burswood

    International Sparkling Wine List of the Year, presented by Nyetimber 2023

    The renowned Rockpool is an upmarket steak restaurant housed within the Crown Metropol precinct. The dining room is bold and serious, sitting alongside a large open kitchen. The bar is sophisticated, where excellent burgers alongside grand cru burgundy is most definitely an option. The encyclopaedic wine list takes time to peruse, as the regions of Europe are thoroughly represented. Verticals of Australian icons and plenty of back vintage wines are a real feature here.
