Lautrec at Nemacolin Woodlands Resort Earns Wine Spectator Restaurant Award in 2017
Full 2017 Dining Guide Now Available in August Issue

Farmington, PA (August 4, 2017) - Lautrec restaurant at Nemacolin Woodlands Resort has been honored for its outstanding wine program in Wine Spectator’s 2017 Restaurant Awards. The restaurant is recognized among other winners from all over the globe as a top destination for wine lovers.

“Restaurants continue to raise their game when it comes to wine, and we are particularly proud to present this year’s winners,” said Marvin R. Shanken, Editor & Publisher, Wine Spectator. “As wine becomes more important to diners, the Awards program is thriving – with an increasing number of entries, as well as growing print, digital and social audiences. Wine Spectator congratulates each and every award winner.” 

“At Nemacolin, we take great pride in offering some of the best dining opportunities anywhere in Pennsylvania,” said Monte Hansen, managing director of the resort. “To once again be recognized by Wine Spectator is a huge honor for our culinary team and further confirms that we’re offering the best and most memorable experiences here, at Lautrec and at the resort’s many other dining venues.”

Wine Spectator began its program to recognize the world’s best wine lists in 1981. There are three levels: the Award of Excellence, the Best of Award of Excellence and the Grand Award – with 2,335; 1,168; and 89 winners this year in each respective category. Five of the Grand Award winners are first-timers.

Lautrec has won the Award of Excellence, which recognizes restaurants whose wine lists feature a well-chosen assortment of quality producers along with a thematic match to the menu in both price and style.

The complete list of award winners is available in print in Wine Spectator’s August issue, which is on newsstands now, and online at Restaurants.WineSpectator.com, where visitors can search and access exclusive content on the more than 3,500 restaurants. The full list is also available for free on iOS via the Restaurant Awards app, which allows users to look for dining spots in any location with maps, choosing by wine strengths, cuisine type, pricing and more.
