While some awards recognize the overall experiences guests have at a resort, some honor the attention given to even the smallest details that makes a resort excellent. The Wine Spectator Award of Excellence is given to restaurants whose wine selection is superior and shows off the flavors of different countries and local wineries. This year, La Casona, one of the Villa La Estancia restaurants, has been given this honor of distinction. As a recipient of one of the Wine Spectator Restaurant Awards 2019, La Casona offers you fine dining in an elegant atmosphere with exquisite flavors, fine cuts of meat, and, of course, spectacular wines.
Wine Spectator Magazine has been the world’s guide to fine wines since 1976 with the latest wine news, reviews of new and classic vineyards, and recommendations for where to dine. The Wine Spectator restaurant awards are coveted by fine dining establishments who seek to curate extensive wine lists from the world’s top wineries. Only those whose lists feature the superior classics from international wineries as well as the freshest tastes from regional wineries receive the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence. The range of wines at these restaurants must enhance the flavors of the dining menu and offer a wide price range to top off any meal to be honored by Wine Spectator Magazine.
At La Casona, as well as the other Villa La Estancia restaurants, wine director Victor Medina and sommelier Francisco Palomera have sought out exquisite wines from around the world to curate a list that rivals any other and earn it a spot among the Wine Spectators 2019 award recipients. With 125 wine selections, Mexican, Argentinian, Chilean, and American wines highlight the flavors of Chef Candelario Leon’s kitchen. With the growing number of restaurant awards 2019 has brought to the restaurant, the Wine Spectators 2019 award is the icing on the cake. Here, the staff can help you pair your seared tuna or porcini mushroom ravioli with the perfect bottle, or you can try something new as you sample the tapas menu.
