Freundschaft in Berlin has Germany’s best wine list with Austrian wine. The winner was announced during Star Wine List of the Year Germany on 17 April. The category was presented by Austrian Wine.

”It means a lot for us, for the whole team and the work that we have put in. I want to say thank you to all the people that have believed in us, and to all our guests,” says Johannes Schellhorn, co-owner, sommelier and culinary director at Freundschaft.

”A list that certainly pays great honour to the wines of Austria with a broad selection of styles, regions, grape varieties, producers and vintages,” says jury member Julie Dupouy-Young about the winning wine list.

This year, Star Wine List of the Year Germany was judged by this line-up of exceptional judges:
