Two venues shared the victory in the category By The Glass in the first ever Star Wine List of the Year International: Prism, Berlin, Germany and Territoriet, Oslo, Norway. The category is presented by Coravin.
Jury member Pascaline Lepeltier says:
”These two venues both have outstanding by-the-glass programs, with great diversity and depth. It was almost a no-brainer for us in the jury to reward these venues. They have different approaches, but both with outstanding wine programs.”
Coravin founder Greg Lambrecht who was presenting this award, says:
”I do not envy the jury in this category, all of the finalists are amazing. And the winners are two perfect choices. I can’t imagine how fantastic it would be to take a 2021 tour to all of these places!”
”Thank you so much. I’m speechless and very happy and proud. When we started this place the idea was that you would be able to have any wine you wanted all of the time, so this is what we have worked for all the time,” says Karin Dejeborn at Territoriet.
Jacqueline Lorenz at Prism:
”Thank you, wow. I’m both confused and happy! I didn’t think that we would win, so thanks to the jury.”
