Mountain in London won a Gold Star in the category Best Long List when Star Wine List and The Buyer returned to the UK to celebrate the best wine lists and the teams behind them for the fourth time. The category was presented by Matteo Lupi Wines.

”This venue has thoroughly taken small producers and terroir-driven wines to its heart. Each wine is chosen carefully and the list gives stage both for established producers and future stars. It would be hard to choose what not to drink,” said jury member Heidi Mäkinen.

Mountain also won the prestigious Grand Prix for best wine list overall, and Best Newcomer List.

The Silver Star winners in this category were:
Authentique Epicerie & Bar, London
Belmond Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons, Oxford
Core by Clare Smyth, London
La Compagnie des vins surnaturels Seven Dials, London
Les 110 de Taillevent, London
Noble Rot Lamb's Conduit Street, London
Noble Rot Mayfair, London
Noble Rot Soho, London
The Clove Club, London
The Ledbury, London
The Vineyard at Stockcross, Newbury

UK is included to our 2023-2024 International tour, and this was the fourth time we were running it in UK, in partnership with The Buyer.

Mountain will now qualify for our International Final in June 2024, where they will face off with the category winners from other countries and continents.

• Julie Dupouy-Young
• Federico Moccia
• Raj Parr

Categories and criteria

Star Wine List judges the wine lists in several categories such as the Best Sparkling Wine List and Best By the Glass List. These categories are the same across all of the awards. In addition, local categories may be added. We have commercial partners for certain categories, such as the Best Austrian Wine List, presented by Austrian Wine. The commercial partners are, however, never involved in the selections of finalists or winners — that is completely up to our independent jury panel.

The criteria for the jury are straightforward but not simple: Vote for the most exciting wine list representing the category.
