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, WBWL 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 in its region.

5th Year Anniversary and Live Awards Ceremony:
Now entering its fifth year, the World’s Best Wine Lists awards have steadily grown in reputation and are now considered one of the most important accolades for restaurants with serious wine programs. Recognition for those doing outstanding work in their category and region is published in print and online every year, and the time has come to celebrate their success with a luxurious live ceremony. In September 2018, WBWL will host a live awards ceremony in London, UK to present all regional winners with their certificates and announce the category winners and Best Overall Wine List for 2018.
