On 4 May, the best wine lists in Sweden will be presented with Gold diplomas, prizes and a lot of bragging rights for the third year in a row. One of the categories is Best Austrian Wine List, presented by Austrian Wine.
Star Wine List of the Year will recognize the best wine lists in a number of categories, such as Best Wine List by the Glass and in several country categories. The Austrian category has been present in the previous two Star Wine List of the Year competitions in Sweden. PM & Vänner has won it both times but Heaven 23 took the Nordic gold in 2019.
"Austrian wines are some of the most food friendly around. We can't wait to see who shines in this category this year," says Krister Bengtsson, publisher Star Wine List.
This year the event will be digital and streamed for everyone to see online on Facebook 4 May, 3-5 PM CET.
