Baltic Wine List Awards
We created the Baltic Wine List Awards to discover the best wine lists in Riga, Tallinn, Vilnius! And here we go - the results of the first Baltic Wine List Awards were announced in March 2018, when we announced 30 great wine lists in Riga, Tallinn, Vilnius and other Baltic cities. Check out the awards ceremony and browse the Top 30 Baltic Wine lists!
We are sure the Awards will improve wine selection and service in the Baltics as well as encourage strong wine lists that complement our restaurants and cuisines. We also hope that the Awards will raise awareness of the impact great wine lists can have on attractiveness and profitability of HoReCa industry!
The organiser of the Baltic Wine List Awards is Riga Wine & Champagne festival in association with the main sponsor Amber Beverage Group and the leading Baltic and European wine personalities as Jury members.
