MAST Weinbistro in Vienna won the Gold Star in the category Special Jury Prize, recognizing a venue that has done something extra with their wine list, such as the direction, the style or the value. The category was presented by iconic Austrian domain Schloss Gobelsburg.

"MAST has to be one of my favorite wine lists in Europe. The focus and curation is unmatched," says jury member Rajat Parr, winemaker, author and sommelier.

Fellow jury member Véronique Rivest, Best Sommelier of Canada, says:

"A highly curated and personalized wine list, with lots of unique propositions. A very serious list with a super cool attitude."
