Three restaurants within Dorchester Collection’s UK properties, The Dorchester, Coworth Park in Ascot and London’s latest, 45 Park Lane, have been acknowledged within Wine Spectator’s 2012 Restaurant Wine List Awards for their notable lists. Wine Spectator’s esteemed awards programme honours 3,795 restaurants every year, across more than 70 countries, for their top-quality wine lists.
The fine-dining Restaurant Coworth Park and Wolfgang Puck’s modern American steak restaurant, CUT at 45 Park Lane, received ‘Best of Award of Excellence’ and the classically British, Grill at The Dorchester was honoured an ‘Award of Excellence’. This is the second year that The Grill and Restaurant Coworth Park have been included, with the latter excelling from ‘Award of Excellence’ in 2011 to ‘Best of Award of Excellence’ in 2012.
A wide range of dining is available to guests in The Promenade, The Bar and The Grill. China Tang offers traditional Cantonese cuisine, while three Michelin star Alain Ducasse at The Dorchester is one of London’s finest contemporary French dining experiences.
Opening together with the hotel in September 2011, CUT at 45 Park Lane’s wine list is overseen by sommelier, Vanessa Cinti, and includes an emphasis on American wine, showcasing some of the country’s finest producers alongside a strong cross-section of wines from around the globe including new and old world selections. Having worked in America for almost ten years, Vanessa has been with Wolfgang Puck since 2006 and was most recently wine director at his Spago restaurant in The Ritz-Carlton, Bachelor Gulch.
Vanessa Cinti commented: “We are thrilled to have CUT at 45 Park Lane included within Wine Spectator’s annual restaurant wine list awards and honoured to have been recognised within our first year of operation.”
