Two venues shared the gold medal in the category Best Medium-Sized List in UK Wine List of the Year 2022: Brat and Trivet, both in London. The category recognises the best list with 200-600 references and was presented by Matteo Lupi Wines.
"Both the lists at Brat and Trivet are perfectly curated. The selections and the presentation are both very creative," says jury member Rajat Parr, sommelier, winemaker and author.
The winners in UK Wine List of the Year 2022 were revealed during a live event in London on Feb. 21, co-hosted by Star Wine List and The Buyer.
The jury for the event was filled with top sommelier and wine names:
• Ruth Spivey, sommelier, writer, Star Wine List UK ambassador
• Salvatore Castano, Best Sommelier of Europe and Africa 2021
• Arvid Rosengren, Best Sommelier of the World 2016
• Raimonds Tomsons, Best Sommelier of Europe and Africa 2017
• Rajat Parr, sommelier, winemaker, author
Star Wine List of the Year started in the Nordics back in 2018, to celebrate the great wine lists and the teams behind them. Last year, our first international tour went to 10 markets in Asia and Europe. During the second tour of Star Wine List of the Year, we have so far visited Finland, Denmark, Australia and Norway. And now we came to the UK for the second time, in partnership with The Buyer.
Apart from the honour and the gold certificates, winners of the international categories are qualified to the International Final of Star Wine List of the Year in June 2022.
