O Boufés in Vienna won the category Best Short List, recognizing the best list with up to 200 references, when Star Wine List of the Year Austria 2022 was celebrated on May 23.

"What a great wine list! Every wine is there for a reason, with a clear natural focus to the list. It simply makes you want to try them all," says jury member Véronique Rivest, Best Sommelier of Canada, about the winning list.

The winners of Star Wine List of the Year 2022 were revealed by Star Wine List's founder Krister Bengtsson and Ambassador Manager Liora Levi during a live event in Vienna on May 23. The event was held together with Dorli Muhr and her PR agency Wine+Partners, who were hosting their annual "Christmas party" the same night.

The silver medalists in this category were:
ALMA – Gastrothèque, Vienna
Schwanen, Bizau
