Good Food Ireland Best in Class Provider, ELY Wins Big at Prestigious Wine Awards
ELY WINE BAR and ELY BAR & GRILL, proud members of Good Food Ireland's Best in Class Collection have been honoured at prestigious wine awards.
ELY establishments, including ELY WINE BAR and ELY BAR & GRILL have been honoured in the prestigious annual Wine Spectator Restaurant Awards. The Awards recognise restaurants whose wine lists offer “interesting selections, are appropriate to their cuisine and appeal to a wide range of wine lovers.” This is the fifth consecutive year for ELY WINE BAR to make the awards list.
Wine Spectator is recognised as being one of the most prestigious publications on wine worldwide. Its annual awards, which are greatly coveted, cover restaurants in 80 countries around the world. There are three categories of awards – Award of Excellence, Best of Award of Excellence and Grand Award.
The “Best of Award of Excellence”, which has been awarded to ELY WINE BAR, goes to restaurants whose wine lists display “excellent breadth across multiple winegrowing regions and/or significant vertical depth of top producers, along with superior presentation.” The award recognises restaurants which offer 350 or more wines and which show a deep commitment to wine, both in their cellars and through the expertise of their staff.
The “Award of Excellence”, awarded to ELY BAR & GRILL in the IFSC, recognises wine lists which offer a minimum of 90 wines and which feature well-chosen quality producers, matching menus in both price and style.
Ian Brosnan, ELY Executive Wine Director said “We are both honoured and delighted to be recognised by Wine Spectator for a fifth consecutive year. At ELY, we are all passionate about wine and we pride ourselves on the depth and variety of our wine lists. We love nothing more than to share our knowledge and help our customers discover new and exciting wines to try.”
ELY is celebrating 20 years in Ireland this year, since the opening of its original ELY WINE BAR on Ely Place, Dublin 2.
