Kornat won Special Jury Prize in Austria 2021

Kornat was awarded the Special Jury Prize in the first ever Star Wine List of the Year Austria that was held on 12 May. The category recognizes a venue that has done something extra with their wine list, such as the direction, the style or the value.

”This list was very special and totally different, with a wide selection of very tempting wines from Croatia and Serbia. Interesting white wines and red wines, vintage depth and a wide selection of producers. Next time in Vienna I will definitely check out this place,” said jury member Raimonds Tomsons about the winning wine list.

Kornat is now qualified for the International Star Wine List of the Year on 31 May, that will be held in partnership with Austrian Wine.

The silver medalists in the Special Jury Prize category were:
Die Weinbank, Ehrenhausen
Gastwirtschaft Floh, Langenlebarn
MAST Weinbistro, Vienna
Schwanen, Bizau
