Star Wine List of the Year Germany — 17 April – save the date and enter before 5 March

On 17 April 2023, Star Wine List will celebrate the best wine lists in Germany, for the second time. The celebration is a part of our international tour and the winners in the international categories in Germany will move on to compete against the winners from many other countries in the international final in June 2023.

In April, Star Wine List once again returns to Germany to celebrate the best wine lists, and the teams behind them, in the country. The first Star Wine List celebration in Germany took place in 2021.

The event will be judged by a line-up of exceptional judges: Emmanuel (Manu) Rosier, Jan Konetzki, Heidi Mäkinen MW, and Julie Dupouy-Young.

To enter, fill out this form. Participation is free of charge.

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’s completely up to our independent jury panel.

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



  • Best Austrian Wine List, presented by Austrian Wine
  • Grand Prix, For wine lists with more than 600 references.
  • Best Medium-Sized List, 200-600 references.
  • Best Short List <200 references.
  • Best Sparkling Wine List, presented by Nyetimber
  • Best By the Glass List
  • Special Jury Prize, For a wine list that does something out of the ordinary.
  • Sustainable Wine List – For the Sustainable Wine List category, not only the wine list is evaluated, but also the stated actions of the venue, as described through a survey in the entry documents.


  • New Generation Bordeaux List, presented by Bordeaux Wines
  • Best California Wine List, presented by Louis M. Martini

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 Sweden.
For each category, a number of wine lists are selected as finalists and they will be announced at the end of March. At the awards ceremony on 17 April 2023, the winners will be presented with Gold Star certificates and other prizes.
