Heunisch & Erben in Vienna has the best By The Glass List in Austria. The venue won the Gold Star in the category when Star Wine List of the Year Austria 2022 was celebrated on May 23.

"The by the glass program at Heunish & Erben seems to have its own character and fingerprint. You can really feel a certain philosophy and person/s behind it. Besides having wines from different origins and styles it also includes lesser known varieties and regions which are always exciting to explore and discover. The list also includes Sake and a wide selection of fortified wines, both, dry and sweet," says jury member Raimonds Tomsons, Best Sommelier of Europa and Africa 2017, about the winning wine list.

The winners of Star Wine List of the Year 2022 were revealed by Star Wine List's founder Krister Bengtsson and Ambassador Manager Liora Levi during a live event in Vienna on May 23. The event was held together with Dorli Muhr and her PR agency Wine+Partners, who were hosting their annual "Christmas party" the same night.

For the Star Wine List of the Year awards in Austria, Star Wine List was also happy to partner with the website and sommelier community Kalk & Kegel.

The silver medalists in this category were:
Döllerer, Golling
Pub Klemo, Vienna
Rote Wand, Lech
The Ritz-Carlton, Vienna
