Ep. 1012 Krister Bengtsson | Uncorked
Welcome to episode 1012 in which host Polly Hammond interviews Krister Bengtsson, this week on Uncorked. In this episode, we are joined by Krister Bengtsson, Founder and Publisher of Star Wine List. With a strategy focused on long-term, sustainable growth, Krister and his team eschewed the “move fast and break things” start-up approach in favor of consistent value, measured launches, and relationship building. We’re here to talk about this direction carried them through a pandemic (despite being all about wine lists!), how Krister’s background in journalism paved the way, and how Star Wine List has carved a unique niche in the world of wine writing.

More about today’s guest:
Krister Bengtsson is a Swedish journalist and entrepreneur with a background in both the media and wine industries. In 2017, he founded Star Wine List as he thought there were so many restaurant guides in the world, but not enough wine guides. Krister is also an investor in the British wine bar and magazine Noble Rot.

He was named 2018 Wine Person of the Year by Swedish wine magazine Allt om Vin, and Commandeur de Bordeaux, 2018. In 2012, he earned his Wine MBA from Kedge Management School, Bordeaux; and he is a member of the Swedish wine writers association.
