For the second year in a row, the wine list at Trout Point Lodge has won an Award of Excellence from New York-based Wine Spectator magazine.
Since 1981, Wine Spectator’s Restaurant Wine List Awards has honored the world’s best wine lists. A total of 3,743 restaurants earned awards in 2010. Of them, 579 offer inexpensive prices (with many bottles under $50 and below-normal markups), and 719 are located outside the United States, in 60 different countries.
2,880 restaurants carry the Award of Excellence, the program’s basic award, which honors a wine list of at least 100 well-chosen selections that are clearly presented and appropriately paired with the restaurant’s cuisine.
The complete list of the 2010 award winners is featured in the August 31 issue of Wine Spectator. All of the restaurants can be found in WineSpectator.com’s Restaurant Search, along with more extensive details about their wine selection, cuisine, prices and key staff.
