Restaurant Guy Savoy and Old Homestead at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas have been honored in Wine Spectator’s 2012 Restaurant Wine List Awards. Restaurant Guy Savoy won its fifth Grand Award and Old Homestead is a proud first-time recipient of the Award of Excellence.
Wine Spectator’s Restaurant Wine List Awards are given based on the wine list’s selection, 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.
The Grand Award winners, representing the program’s top echelon, typically offer 1,500 or more selections and feature serious breadth of top producers, outstanding depth in mature vintages, large-format bottles, superior organization, presentation, and wine service. Award of Excellence winners offer at least 100 selections and feature a list of a well-chosen selection of quality producers, along with a thematic match to the menu in both price and style.
