Judges rate worthy lists with one, two, or three stars. Among the criteria are breadth, depth, height, balance, selection, accuracy, originality, suitability, design, and value.
Entrants to the 2022 Star Awards will received notification of their Star Award, assessment of their wine list according to key criteria by the panel of Star-Award Judges as well as a certificate and award collateral.
Entrants who receive one, two, or three stars will have their wine list featured on The World of Fine Wine website for viewers to download.
This is the first awards program to acknowledge the crucial importance of a good wine selection—regardless of size—in the modern dining experience all round the world. Judges always have in mind the wise words of Francis Percival about the difference between
“a great wine list and a mere list with great wines on it.”
