Grain of the Silos restaurant in Launceston has won the Judges’ Choice Award in the 2023 Tasmanian Wine List of the Year awards.

The Best Regional Wine List was awarded to Kermandie Hotel, while Stanley Wine Bar received awards for both Best Small Wine Bar List and the People’s Choice Wine List, receiving more than 43 percent of votes from the wine-loving public.

The outstanding quality of finalists in the 2023 awards also saw the introduction of a highly commended category for the first time, recognising Hobart’s Mures Upper Deck and Peppina, Launceston’s Little V and regional entrant The Imbibers, located at Oatlands.

“Unlike other award programs, the Tasmanian Wine List of the Year has a hyper-local focus and seeks to identify those venues that go the extra mile when it comes to championing our island’s world-famous produce,” Wine Tasmania CEO Sheralee Davies says.

“The depth and quality of the local wine offering from all finalist venues was a step up this year, reflecting the growing sophistication of the island as a wine and food destination.

“Not only did we see an increase in new and geographically-dispersed entrants, their wine lists featured a much greater range of wine producers, locations, varieties and vintages than previously seen.

“We commend and thank all of our finalist venues for the excellent role they play in promoting the island’s wines to locals and visitors alike.”
