More recommendations

  • There are a lot of good Austrian wine lists around but Heaven 23 is really showcasing all of Austria, with wines from lesser-known regions and an impressive diversity of styles, for example with a huge selection of mature red wines, said jury member Marc Almert about the gold winning wine list in International Star Wine List of the Year 2021.

  • Exuding passion and dedication to a very honorable cause - championing the brilliance of Austrian wine, this list covers all bases. A really wonderful list that should be a site of pilgrimage for any (Austrian) wine lover

  • It is an Austrian wine heaven indeed, including a broad diversity of styles – sparkling, white, red and Austria's liquid gold: the sweet wines. The list displays all the classic Austrian varieties and also new exciting varieties to discover. For me this is probably one of the best Austrian wine lists I have seen outside Austria.

  • Undoubtedly one of the most interesting and comprehensive Austrian wine lists outside Austria! Very detailed, in-depth, covering all possible styles, leading and upcoming producers and various back vintages too, Piotr says when Heaven 23 won gold in Best Austrian Wine List Nordic 2022.

  • This place has not just chosen their focus clearly but also executes their choice in a top manner. The wine list could be used as a real marketing tool for the country; it's showcasing how one can drink through the list, imagine visiting all the regions and their top producers, and create memorable moments with the mature wines on offer, says jury member Heidi Mäkinen MW about Heaven 23 winning gold in Best Austrian List 2023.

  • Motivation for Special Jury Prize 2023: The list has a focus in Austrian wine which is audacious and takes risks, showing their passion to wine. We love this list because of its personality, it is a list that propose things, there are ideas behind and notions about wine styles and producers. It is a list that is fun and diverse were you can find the classics and the most innovative producers with delicious wines.

  • After hearing about this restaurant for a long time - finally being here and browsing the wine list while enjoying the beautiful view over the city makes you want to wish you had the whole week to spend here. The Austrian part of the list is the most exciting part, but here are also fantastic wines from other parts of the world, both classical and the new world. Some older vintages and some wines that are extremely good value for money. And of course, don't forget to order the famous shrimp sandwich, it is said to be the best, if not in Sweden, then at least in Gothenburg!

  • One of the deepest lists of wines from Austria, covering every major wine region, said jury member Rajat Parr when Heaven 23 won gold for Best Austrian Wine List 2024.
