Best Hotel Wine List in the World


2020 Winner

Many of the world’s best restaurants are in leading hotels around the world, with settings as diverse as beachside villas, wildlife lodges, or snow-covered mountainside chalets. The Best Hotel Wine List category is dedicated to these. As with many restaurants, the focus is often on the pairing of the wine and the food, but the particular setting, often reflecting the personal taste of the owner, is perhaps even more important. These lists are assessed by the same criteria of breadth, depth, height, balance, selection, accuracy, originality, suitability, design, and value.
