Wine Spectator Best of Award of Excellence

Wine Spectator's Restaurant Wine List Awards recognize restaurants whose wine lists offer interesting selections, are appropriate to their cuisine and appeal to a wide range of wine lovers.

Best of Award of Excellence recognizes restaurants that clearly exceed the requirements of the Award of Excellence. These lists typically offer 400 or more selections, along with superior presentation, and display either vintage depth, with several vertical offerings of top wines, or excellent breadth across several wine regions.


Restaurants and bars are sometimes maligned, but they are very important to our very sense of who we are as a people.
