Best Medium-Size Wine List in the World

Four of the World’s Best Wine Lists categories are based on the size of the offering in order to reach a fair assessment. The category of Best Medium Wine List includes lists that feature between 200 and 500 wines (at 75cl bottle-size). A list of this size indicates that those responsible have been building their selection and can really plumb the depths in particular wine regions, styles, or grape varieties. The size of the list provides the wine lover with the opportunity to explore a list with depth and variety. Judges consider the criteria of breadth, depth, height, balance, selection, accuracy, originality, suitability, design, and value when reaching their decision.
