The World of Fine Wine is thrilled to announce that the live awards ceremony for the 2018 World’s Best Wine Lists will be held on September 11th, 2018 at Vintner’s Hall in London.

Regarded as the sommelier’s version of Michelin stars, the World’s Best Wine Lists award is the most rigorous and prestigious wine list accolade in the industry. It is organized by the multi-award winning publication, The World of Fine Wine, who assembles an independent panel of prestigious international wine experts to judge each entry. The winner in each category is recognized as the finest list of its kind in its region.

While recognition for those doing outstanding work in their category and region is published in print and online every year, the time has come to celebrate their success with a luxurious live ceremony. In September 2018, the winners of WBWL will be announced at a live awards ceremony at Vintner’s Hall in London, UK.All regional winners will be presented with their certificates and the panel will announce the category winners and Best Overall Wine List for 2018.
