The World of Fine Wine magazine presents the World’s Best Wine Lists awards. Now in its sixth year, the awards celebrate quality, passion and creativity in wine lists globally.
Having established its reputation among restaurants, the World’s Best Wine Lists is the most rigorous and prestigious accolade in the industry. In 2018 there were over 1,000 entrants from 69 countries, with 15 winners being recognised as the finest of their kind globally.
Judged by an independent group of international wine writers and experts, 2018’s panel included award-winning journalist and author, Elin McCoy; champion sommelier, Andreas Larsson; editor, Andrew Jefford; publisher, Ch’ng Poh Tiong; editor and author, Francis Percival; wine blogging pioneer, Alder Yarrow; and wine writer, Anne Krebiehl MW.
Three-time Louis Roederer International Wine Publication of the Year, The World of Fine Wine, has subscribers across 30 countries, covering a broad spectrum of wine lovers. The World’s Best Wine Lists awards were launched to honor the work of those who curate and create wine programs, and to act as a trusted resource for consumers through a star rating system.
Described by the late Gerard Basset MW as “rapidly becoming as coveted as Michelin stars”, the World’s Best Wine Lists awards attract restaurants with serious wine programs and a desire to be recognized on a global stage.
“The World of Fine Wine has seen the passion, attention to detail and enormous amount of work that goes into the selection and presentation of our list”
- Cheryl Wakerhauser, Pix Pâtisserie (Portland, USA)
“If you are passionate about your wine lists and cellar, go for it. The experience will change your perception of how to approach compiling your wine list and enhance your knowledge”
- Mari Dartnall, Maître d’Hotel, Restaurant Mosaic at the Orient (Pretoria, South Africa)
