Newcomer Wines has the best Austrian wine list in the UK. During the first ever UK Star Wine List of the Year, Newcomer Wines was awarded the gold medal in the category Austrian Wine List, presented by Austrian Wine.
”Both the selection and the presentation stick out to me. For example, you can see the deep passion for the red wines of Austria, especially Blaufränkisch, and there is also some learning to do, with some information about the grapes. I hope we can see more wine lists like this in the future,” says jury member Marc Almert.
Newcomer Wines is now qualified for the Global Final, where the best wine lists in the world will be crowned.
UK Star Wine List of the Year, held on 22 February, was hosted by Star Wine List’s UK ambassador and jury member Ruth Spivey, together with The Buyer’s Richard Siddle.

• Paz Levinson, Best sommelier of Argentina and the Americas
• Pascaline Lepeltier, 2018 Best Sommelier of France
