Trivet in London, UK, won the International Special Jury Prize in the first ever Star Wine List of the Year International. The category recognizes a venue that has done something extra with their wine list when it comes to, for example, the direction, the style or the value.
”It’s a wine list that is very original, with a brave concept that I haven’t really seen before. You will find great wines from some of the oldest wine producing countries in the world, which is really exciting for both wine professionals and general wine lovers. It is educational and also very beautiful, apart from having great depth and width in its selection,” says jury member Raimonds Tomsons about Trivet's winning list.
The competition was held online on 31 May 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!
