Congratulations to Several SLO County Restaurants: Wine Spectator's 2015 Award of Excellence

Each year Wine Spectator honors restaurants from around the world that share a dedication to wine. These restaurants earn one of three awards for offering a wine list that is both interesting in its selections and appeals to a wide range of wine lovers, as well as being appropriate to the restaurants' cuisine. In order to qualify for an award, these restaurants must meet the following criteria:

  • complete and accurate wine information
  • includes vintages and appellations for all selections, including wines by the glass
  • complete producer names and correct spellings
  • overall appearance & presentation of the wine list

Once these basic requirements are are met, Wine Spectator then honors the restaurant with one of three awards.

All of the San Luis Obispo County restaurants honored were given the Award of Excellence. This award is given for offering a well-chosen selection of quality producers on the wine list, along with a thematic match to the menu in both price and style, and lists at least 90 selections.
