Overview The World’s Best Wine Lists Awards, organized by the multi-award-winning quarterly publication The World of Fine Wine, is the most prestigious and rigorous wine lists awards program. We have assembled a panel of some of the world’s most respected experts, including Masters of Wine, a Master Sommelier, and a World Champion Sommelier, to guarantee the credibility and integrity of the competition and to put each submitted list through an intensive independent judging process. The winner in each of 20 categories will be recognized as the ﬁnest list of its kind in its region—Europe, North America, South America, Asia, Australasia, Middle East and Africa—and from these regional category winners the global category winners will be selected. One outstanding entry will be identified as Wine List of the Year. All of the category winners will be identiﬁed in a special feature in The World of Fine Wine magazine. The full results will be published on a dedicated awards page on-line that will include the judges’ assessments of the best lists and serve as an expert guide for all discerning consumers worldwide. The World’s Best Wine Lists have received global coverage including Bloomberg, CNN, the BBC, The New York Times, New York Daily News, Chicago Tribune, and Toronto Sun. Judges include:Alder Yarrow, Andreas Larsson, Ch'ng Poh Tiong, Elin McCoy, Francis Percival, Heidi Mäkinen MW, James Tidwell MS, Luciana Girotto and Neil Beckett.
