Skigaarden has Norway's best list with sparkling wine

Skigaarden in Hemsedal.

Skigaarden in Hemsedal won the category Beste Champagne/Musserende vinliste (Best Sparkling Wine List) when Star Wine List of the Year teamed up with the Norwegian Sommelier Association and Kapital magazine to celebrate the best wine lists of Norway on Sept. 25. The category was presented by Nyetimber.

For the first time, we also had the Sustainable Wine List category in Norway, and the first Norwegian winner was Credo.
