We are taking our Star Wine List of the Year competition for Sweden digital and giving it a new date: 4 May 2020. Join us online to celebrate the Swedish sommeliers and look forward to the future.
Star Wine List of the Year is our wine list competition. This year will be the third time we do it for Sweden, even though this time the circumstances are very different. We are still going ahead - we want to share some positive vibes in these hard times - but we are doing a digital event instead of a physical one.
- We will run a digital show, hosted by ASI Best Sommelier of the World 2016 Arvid Rosengren and Star Wine List founder Krister Bengtsson - with invited guests online and streamed for everyone to see, wherever you are.
- We will do it on Monday 4 May in the afternoon, 3-5 PM Swedish time, to make it a more accessible time for everyone.
- If the regulations allow it at the time, we may have a small audience at the venue, but digital is the main channel.
- This will also give you the chance to follow and interact with the show wherever you are.
- Questions will be welcomed before and during the event.

• Paz Levinson
