In 1981, Wine Spectator began its program to recognise the world’s best wine lists. There are three levels: the Award of Excellence, the Best of Award of Excellence and the Grand Award with 2,414; 1,093; and 88 winners this year in each respective category. Wine Spectator magazine reaches out to more than 3 million readers worldwide.
The Award of Excellence recognises restaurants whose wine lists feature a well-chosen assortment of quality producers along with a thematic match to the menu in both price and style.
“On behalf of Wine Spectator, I’m thrilled to congratulate each and every award-winning restaurant. They should be very proud,” said Marvin R. Shanken, Editor and Publisher, Wine Spectator.
