Wine Kudos

We just got word: for the 15th year running, The Little Nell’s Montagna Restaurant has received the Wine Spectator Grand Award.

Only 74 establishments were given this award for 2011, which Wine Spectator bestows to those that show an uncompromising, passionate devotion to the quality of their wine program. These restaurants typically offer 1,500 selections or more, and feature serious breadth of top producers, outstanding depth in mature vintages, a selection of large-format bottles, excellent harmony with the menu and superior organization, presentation and wine service. 

We were excited to find out that Wine Enthusiast Magazine (also this week) named us one of their 100 Best Wine Restaurants of 2011. The editors and tasters of Wine Enthusiast Magazine scanned the U.S. in search of the absolute best in wine and fine dining in the country, and we’re thrilled to be included. (We’re also the one of just two Colorado restaurants to make the cut.)

So what are we drinking to celebrate on this beautiful summer day? 2009 Domaine de la Perriere Sauvignon Blanc, Sancerre, France with  fabulous lemon, lime and citrus notes.
