The Range Steakhouse at Harrah’s Las Vegas is a proud recipient of the coveted 2011 Award of Excellence given by one of the world’s most respected wine publications, Wine Spectator. The Range Steakhouse’s comprehensive wine list boasts a selection of 145 different wines from around the world, selected by sommelier Kenneth Shey. The restaurant houses nearly 7,000 bottles of wine, many of which are on display for the guests.
Wine Spectator’s Restaurant Wine List Awards are given based on the wine list, its pairing with restaurant cuisine, and the general appeal to wine lovers. Wine lists are judged on a variety of criteria including vintages and appellations for all selections, complete producer names, and the presentation and appearance of the list. Award of Excellence winners typically offer at least 100 different wine selections.
“We’re honored to receive such a prestigious award from Wine Spectator,” Shey says. “Each wine on our list is chosen carefully so every guest, whether a wine connoisseur or a novice, can enjoy a glass with their dinner.”
