Atrio and Rekondo among the best restaurants in the world for its wine list.

These two restaurants have become a classic in the list prepared by the prestigious magazine Wine Spectator.

Wine Spectator, one of the most prestigious wine magazines, has published the annual list of the best restaurants in the world for wine and the 2016 Grand Award prizes. The magazine recognizes restaurants with the best wine list and service

The list compiles 3595 restaurants around the world that are recognised in one of these three categories: Award of Excellence, Best of Award of Excellence and the most important of all: Grand Award, which has only been given to 88 restaurants in the world.

Award of Excellence is the lowest of the three categories but not less important. 2414  restaurants are recognised for setting their wine lists with a minimum of 90 references and, apart from taking into account the quality and origin of the wine, of course, they must be in accordance with the restaurant’s menu.

Best of Award of Excellence rewards those restaurants that show a greater commitment to wine. Their wine lists usually exceed 350 references and quality and origin of wines, that should have the same references in different formats and vintages. Service of wine and restaurant menu are also highly valued. 1,093 restaurants are awarded in this category.

Grand Award is the highest recognition and this year only 88 restaurants were awarded worldwide. To be recognised with the Grand Award, restaurants must clearly show they the importance given to wine, both on the table and with the food pairing. It is usual that the wine lists exceed 1000 references including the best wines of the world and different vintages. The diversity of formats (capacity of the bottle) is also taken into account and wines must be from the most prestigious areas of the world so, to sum it up, they become authentic precious jewels for collectors and available to anyone who can pay.
