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.
Media partner for Star Wine List of the Year Austria was Kalk & Kegel. Also, thanks a lot to the Austrian Sommelier Union.
