On 8 May, Star Wine List will celebrate Sweden’s best wine lists and the teams behind them for the fifth time. This year, we are adding a brand new category: Best Swedish Wine List, recognizing the best wine lists with wines from Sweden.

”Swedish wines have grown considerably over the last decade, both in terms of quality and in acceptance in the market. We look forward to discovering and highlighting the wine bars and restaurants in Sweden who list these wines,” says Krister Bengtsson, publisher Star Wine List.

The event will be judged by a line-up of exceptional judges: Mischa Billing, Rajat Parr, Heidi Mäkinen MW, and Paz Levinson.
