Star Wine List of the Year Sweden 2023 – enter now

On 8 May 2023, Star Wine List will celebrate the best wine lists in Sweden — for the fifth time. The celebration is a part of our international tour and the winners in the international categories in Sweden compete against the winners from many other countries in the international final in June 2023.

The first Swedish Star Wine List celebration took place in 2018. Now, five years later, the competition is going strong and we look forward to gathering in Stockholm once again.

Now it’s time for all wine bars and wine restaurants in Sweden to enter the competition. Participation is free of charge, and you enter by filling out this form.

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

Categories and criteria

Star Wine List judges the wine lists in several categories such as the Best Sparkling Wine List and Best By the Glass List. These categories are the same across all of the awards. In addition, local categories may be added. We have commercial partners for certain categories, such as the Best Austrian Wine List, presented by Austrian Wine. The commercial partners are, however, never involved in the selections of finalists or winners — that is completely up to our independent jury panel.

The criteria for the jury are straightforward but not simple: Vote for the most exciting wine list representing the category.

Grand Prix

The winners in the international categories will qualify for our International Final in June, where they will face off with the category winners from other countries and continents, such as South Africa, Australia, UK and New York.
