Star Wine List of the Year Denmark 2022 – the finalists

On August 29, Star Wine List will celebrate the great wine lists in Denmark for the third time, at an event in Copenhagen. The international sommelier jury has now decided the finalists.

Star Wine List of the Year is our event to celebrate the great wine lists and the teams behind them. It is part of our international Star Wine List tour - and the winners in several categories will qualify for our international final in June 2023.

This year we have a new Sustainable Wine List category presented by Djuce and for the first time a Best German Wine List category, presented by Wines of Germany.

“It will be the third time we go to Copenhagen for the awards and coming out of the pandemic, the field is more interesting than ever. Classic names like Alchemist and Geranium share the spotlight with new finalists like LAGO and HimmerRiget. We can’t wait to celebrate with the sommeliers and the Danish sommelier association,” says Krister Bengtsson, founder and publisher of Star Wine List.

The winners will be revealed during a live event in Copenhagen on Aug. 29, together with the Best Sommelier of Denmark event.
