Kuda Villingili Resort Maldives has been awarded the Best Designed Regional Wine List in Asia by the World of Fine Wine.
Organised by the multi-award-winning quarterly publication, The World of Fine Wine, the World’s Best Wine Lists Awards is the most prestigious and rigorous wine lists awards programme.
Submissions are judged by 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. Each submitted list is evaluated through an intensive independent judging process with a focus on showcasing excellence, innovation, and the embodiment of the true spirit of fine wine.
“The categories for the first few editions of the World’s Best Wine Lists centered on the ambition, innovation, and passion of the restaurateur or sommelier in selecting interesting and varied wines. It soon became apparent to the judges, however, as they studied hundreds of lists every year, that one aspect that significantly affected the ability of a guest to enjoy the process of wine selection was the appearance, clarity, and navigability of the wine list itself. All too often, design is the Achilles heel of otherwise good or great lists,” World of Fine Wine said.
The Global category winners will be announced at the World’s Best Wine Lists awards ceremony at Glaziers Hall in London on 11 September where one entry will be identified as Wine List of the Year.
