Les 110 de Taillevent has the best wine list in the UK with more than 600 listings. The gold star was handed out during a live event in London on Feb. 21, co-hosted by Star Wine List and The Buyer. Les 110 de Taillevent also won the Best Sparkling Wine List category.

"I was absolutely not prepared when our restaurant was called. I think it is amazing to win this prize, but it is also putting pressure on us to keep delivering the same standard. But it is an amazing wine list of mainly French wines, from a French restaurant, with a French family as owners, it is all French. Well, except the chef who is Dutch and me from Poland” says head sommelier Lukasz Kuszela.

Les 110 de Taillevent also won the category Best Sparkling Wine List.

"One of the most incredible lists I've ever seen," says jury member Salvatore Castano, Best Sommelier of Europe and Africa 2021, about the winning list.

The silver medalists in the Grand Prix category were:
Core by Clare Smyth, London
La Compagnie des Vins Surnaturels Seven Dials, London
Noble Rot, London
Noble Rot Soho, London
The Vineyard at Stockcross, Newbury

The jury for the event was filled with top sommelier and wine names:

Salvatore Castano.

Star Wine List of the Year started in the Nordics back in 2018, to celebrate the great wine lists and the teams behind them. Last year, our first international tour went to 10 markets in Asia and Europe. During the second tour of Star Wine List of the Year, we have so far visited Finland, Denmark, Australia and Norway. And now we come to the UK for the second time, in partnership with The Buyer.

Apart from the honour and the gold certificates, winners of the international categories are qualified to the International Final of Star Wine List of the Year in June 2022.
