Wine Spectator just unveiled their list of restaurants with exceptional wine programs from around the world. For 2017, some of Portland’s most award-winning restaurants, Coquine and RingSide’s Steakhouse, Fish House and Grill locations, were included on the coveted list. I thought I would send along the great news for you to share with your readers!
The Award of Excellence is awarded to restaurants with wine lists which typically offer at least 90 selections and feature a well-chosen assortment of quality producers, along with a thematic match to the menu in both price and style. This is the first year for Coquine, joining the ranks amongst 2,000 other restaurants, while RingSide Grill has earned the lauded title since 2015.
The Best of Award of Excellence is awarded to wine lists which display excellent breadth across multiple wine-growing regions and/or significant vertical depth of top producers, along with superior presentation and offer at least 350 selections. RingSide has held onto the title since 2002 (Steakhouse) and 2012 (Fish House) respectively.
