Palais Coburg – Silvio Nickol in Vienna, Austria, has the best international wine list. The restaurant won the prestigious Grand Prix category when Star Wine List of the Year International, presented by Austrian Wine, was celebrated on 31 May. Here are the winners in all the five categories!

”Its an honour for us and it shows us that we are on the right track. We have a phenomenal sommelier team and have been lucky enough to have worked with great sommeliers in previous years. Without them, this wouldn't be possible,” says Head Sommelier Wolfgang Kneidinger and sommelier Thomas Juranitsch at Palais Coburg - Silvio Nickol.

The competition was held online and awarded the best wine lists from all our local competitions from our first international tour, held during 2020 and 2021. Did you miss the event? Then you can watch online now on our Facebook page!
