The Wine Spectator Winners Are…

Every year, Wine Spectator recognizes the achievements of nearly 3,200 restaurants, hailing from all 50 states and 80 countries and territories. These restaurants are awarded for having demonstrated a passion for creating wine lists that give thoughtful consideration to the most complimentary food and wine pairing on their menus. The awards are given across three categories: Award of Excellence, Best of Award of Excellence and Grand Award.

We are proud to announce the Tri-Valley is home to five of those winners!  Read the full article here.
