On 23 May 2023, Star Wine List celebrated the best wine lists in Asia, and the teams behind them, during Vinexpo Asia in Singapore. Robuchon au Dôme in Macau won the category Best California Wine List, presented by Louis M. Martini.

”A huge collection of California wine. Not only can you experience different wine producers and AVA’s, also different vintages side by side,” says jury member Reeze Choi about the winning wine list.

Robuchon au Dôme also won the prestigious category Grand Prix, recognizing the best wine list with over 600 references.

The silver medalists in the California category were:

CUT by Wolfgang Puck, Marina Bay Sands Singapore, Singapore
L'Atelier de Joël Robuchon Hong Kong, Hong Kong
Mesa by José Avillez, Macau
Park 90, Singapore
Smith & Wollensky Taipei, Taipei
SOMM, Hong Kong
The Restaurant (Villa 32), Taipei

The celebration of Star Wine List of the Year in Asia is a part of Star Wine List's international tour and the winners in the international categories in Asia will now move on to compete against the winners from many other countries in the international final in June 2023.

For our first Star Wine List of the Year Asia, we welcomed wine list entries from the markets where Star Wine List is already active: Greater China, Hong Kong, Macau, Taipei; Japan; Singapore; South Korea and Thailand.
