About Us

Regarded as the sommelier’s version of Michelin stars, the World’s Best Wine Lists awards is the most rigorous and prestigious wine list accolade in the industry. Organized by the multi-award-winning publication, The World of Fine Wine, the World’s Best Wine Lists is judged by an independent panel of prestigious international wine experts. The winner in each category is recognized as the finest list of its kind globally.

Having celebrated its 5th year, the World’s Best Wine Lists awards has cemented its reputation among restaurants with serious wine programs.

Live Awards Ceremony
Recognition for our entrants’ outstanding work is published in print and online every year, and in 2018 we were delighted to further toast their success and ours. The spectacular inaugural live ceremony was held at Vintners’ Hall in London. Top industry names, suppliers, our partners, and of course entrants, came together for the announcement of the global winners and trophy presentations.
