Best New Wine List in the World

Each year new restaurants become established and with them new wine lists are submitted for assessment. The Judges of the World’s Best Wine Lists have decided that, as new cellars take some time to be developed, it would be fair to establish a category for the Best New Wine List. The sommeliers compiling these lists are likely to make stimulating and clear selections. Judges consider the criteria of breadth, depth, height, balance, selection, accuracy, originality, suitability, design, and value while taking into account the requirement for development.  

Temperance Wine Bar, New York - Global Winner 2021

Temperance Wine Bar in New York aims to reimagine wine bars by casting aside old traditions but retaining everything that’s great about wine: taste, connection, exploration and community. Every wine is available by the glass, which means more great wine is now accessible to all.

There are 100 plus wines by the glass in all categories. Although there are common shapes in wine, each bottle, glass and grape mix to bring something unique to the experience each time. By presenting these shapes in an abstract form and unconventional context and colour Temperance asks the viewer to be open minded – to cast aside traditions, and recognise that this is a bar where the experience rivals the wine. Temperance Wine Bar was the Regional Winner for North America.


Address: 40 Carmine Street, New York, 10014, New York State, United States of America
