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.
To qualify for an award, the list must present complete, accurate wine
information. It must include vintages and appellations for all
selections, including wines available by the glass. Complete producer
names and correct spellings are mandatory, while the overall
presentation and appearance of the list is also taken into
consideration. After meeting these basic requirements, lists are judged
for one of their three awards.
