Norway's best wine lists were celebrated online on Monday 9 November. Here are all the winners of Norges Beste Vinkart, where Star Wine List partnered with Kapital and the Norwegian Sommelier Association.
Norway is imposing tougher restrictions on restaurants and bars and the wine list event that was planned for Oslo on 9 November had to be moved online instead. But as Liora Levi, the president of the Norwegian sommelier association said - the tough times are all the more reason to celebrate the great wine lists of Norway.
The winners in the different categories were:
Grand Prix - Park Hotel Vossevangen
Best By the Glass - Territoriet
Best Short Wine List - Vinoteket
Best Austrian Wine List, presented by Austrian Wine - Happolati
The Best Austrian Wine List was selected by our international jury.
The first four are qualified for the Global Star Wine List of the Year competition in Vienna in May 2021 - hosted by Austrian Wine.
This year, Star Wine List of the Year teamed up with the Norwegian Sommelier Association and Kapital magazine to celebrate the great wine lists of Norway.
