On September 24, Star Wine List celebrated the best wine lists in Norway and the teams behind them for the fourth time, together with Norges Beste Vinkart. Happolati in Oslo won the category Best Austrian Wine List (Beste Østerrikske Vinkart), presented by Austrian Wine.

”Lovely selection of Austrian wines. Starting from several quality sekts through diverse whites from benchmark producers in each historically important region up to some delicious red and sweet wines,” says jury member Piotr Pietras about the winning list.

The silver medalists in the Austrian category were:

Hos Moi, Kristiansand
Park Hotel Vossevangen, Voss
Radegast, Oslo
RE-NAA, Stavanger
Renaa Matbaren, Stavanger

Norway was our second stop on our 2023-2024 International tour, and this was the fourth time we ran it in Norway. The event was a collaboration between Star Wine List, Norsk Vinkelnerforening and Kapital, and took place at Bristol Hotel in Oslo on Sunday September 24.

The jury for the event was filled with top wine professionals:
• Francesco Marzola
• Rune Rake
• Ole Edvard Berg
• Heidi Mäkinen MW
• Piotr Pietras MS

The criteria for the jury are straightforward but not simple: Vote for the most exciting wine list representing the category.

Happolati will now qualify for our International Final in June 2024, where they will face off with the category winners from other countries and continents.
