Australia's Wine List of the Year Awards 2012

A diverse array of exemplary establishments have taken this year’s top honours, heralding the increasing significance of truly stellar wine lists.

Check out the winners of the 2012 Australia's Wine List of the Year Awards.

Our quest to reveal and celebrate the best wine lists in Australia has been richly rewarded in 2012. Despite challenging economic times, more establishments have entered Australia’s Wine List of the Year Awards, held in conjunction with Fine Wine Partners, than ever before.

Members of our judging panel have not only been impressed by those who continue to summon up the time, effort and funds to produce extensive world-class lists, but are delighted by the skill and creativity of sommeliers putting forward smaller, succinct lists, often featuring great selections of wines by the glass.

Of course, the awards would not be possible without the support of our major sponsor, Spiegelau, and the Sydney Hilton’s Glass Brasserie where the awards presentation took place. Congratulations to all who have received glass ratings and continue to enrich our diverse dining landscape.
