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 came 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.
