"Being sustainable today should be a given for any restaurant carrying about its guests, suppliers and staffs. Yet it is still too rare to see it applied at every level; production, sourcing, logistics, day-to-day operation, curation, and eduction. This is what this group is doing in all its restaurants, going way beyond a very exciting wine selections. This should be a source of inspirations for all of us!" says jury member Pascaline Lepeltier.
For the Sustainable Wine List category, not only the wine list is evaluated, but also the stated actions of the venue, as described through a questionnaire in the application.
Star Wine List of the Year France is included in our 2023-2024 International tour and Les Résistants will now qualify for the International final in June 2024 where they will face off with the category winners from other countries and continents.
For the first ever Star Wine List of the Year France, we gathered a top sommelier jury:
• Pascaline Lepeltier
• Heidi Mäkinen MW
• Ronan Sayburn MS
• Jeremy Cukierman MW
Categories and criteria
Star Wine List judges the wine lists in several categories such as the Best Sparkling Wine List and Best By the Glass List. These categories are the same across all of the awards. In addition, local categories may be added. We have commercial partners for certain categories, such as the Best Austrian Wine List, presented by Austrian Wine. The commercial partners are, however, never involved in the selections of finalists or winners — that is completely up to our independent jury panel.
The criteria for the jury are straightforward but not simple: Vote for the most exciting wine list representing the category.
