Visiting Sydney soon? You may have already researched where to eat during your stay, but sometimes a brilliant wine list can help make the decision easier!
The Annual Wine List of the Year Awards, held last month, is the Oscars for restaurant owners and sommelier’s wine lists as they learn how their carefully constructed list stack up. 2018 was the 25th year of this award.
The most important part of the night is the all important “Glass” rating where restaurants find out if they have received 1, 2 or 3 Glasses, just as they do with “Chefs Hats” for their chefs creations in the kitchen. Sydney is proud to boast 55 restaurants awarded with a 3 wine glass rating.
In addition there are dozens of other categories that cover individual states, city / country, by the glass, beer, sparkling, aperitif, digestive, wines from each state, to read the full 2018 list click here.
