Somms: Publish your own updates on Star Wine List

Updates is our new feature where we let wine bars and wine restaurants listed by Star Wine List publish their own, yes, updates. It can be wine list updates, wine dinners, tastings or just that "we're opening this amazing wine by the glass tonight". And this is how you do it.

Please note that these instructions are ONLY for Red Star restaurants and wine bars already listed by Star Wine List. For partnership opportunities, please see info on our site.

It's free to post your updates on Star Wine List, but we ask that you follow some rules and directions:

Types of content we welcome for Updates:
- On 5 June we open again after the lockdown
- Winemaker visiting on X date - find tickets here.
- We have updated the wine list and you can find a bunch of new wines from Y region here
- We have a new somm and this is her story
- Tonight we're pouring Z from magnum

Types of content we don't want to see on Updates:
- Weekly lunch menus or pure food related content
