City Winery Named 2018 Oregon Wine A-List Award Wine Program Winner

image001

The votes have been cast, the results have been tallied, and City Winery Restaurant Group has emerged the winner of the 2018 Oregon Wine A-List Wine Program of the Year!

The Wine Program of the Year winner sets a standard of excellence for an Oregon wine restaurant program with its depth and breadth of Oregon selections, participation in Oregon Wine Month, and educational opportunities for staff and clientele alike. City Winery exemplifies these qualifiers as it has a well-curated, diverse selection of producers and both traditional and uncommon varieties of Oregon wines. They also host numerous Oregon wine events and make a house wine from Oregon grapes, which helps to increase visibility of the state on their house wine list, all done on a large scale.

Says Oregon Wine Board president Tom Danowski, “The fantastic thing about our A-List restaurant program is that it shines a light on some of the world’s most passionate advocates for Oregon—the fine wine directors and restaurateurs—who go out of their way to showcase Oregon wines on their lists. We feel they should be rewarded for introducing more Oregon wines in the country’s top markets and we want to say thank you for the support.”

With five locations—ChicagoBostonNYCAtlanta and Nashville—City Winery is headed by founder and CEO Michael Dorf and is a fully functioning winery (the first in NYC) and fine dining establishment hosting concerts, food and wine classes, and private events. Dorf and City Winery’s national wine director Rachel Driver Speckan are particularly pleased about the designation of City Winery as 2018 Oregon Wine A-List Program of the Year. “Both Rachel and I are so delighted with this honor,” said Dorf. “Putting on a wide variety of Oregon wines with the deep terroir differences between winemaking areas of the state, and showcasing all the delicious flavors Pinot noir has to offer, make our wine lists sing. We love turning our customers on to what we feel is the most exciting wine region in America.”

The Oregon Wine A-List Awards program is a partnership between Oregon Wine Press and Oregon Wine Board. It was founded in 2015 to recognize restaurants around the world that display deep appreciation, enthusiasm and support for Oregon wines as seen in the diversity of regions and varieties on their wine lists.
