Auckland’s O’Connell St Bistro has been awarded yet another Award of Excellence for its wine lists from the prestigious New York wine magazine Wine Spectator. The awards recognise establishments whose wine lists offer interesting selections, are appropriate to their cuisine and appeal to a wide range of wine lovers.
Owner Chris Upton said everyone at the restaurant is extremely proud to have achieved the award again this year. “To have gained one of these awards for 15 years in a row is great recognition for the ongoing wine buying programme we have at the bistro and the many labels that sit on our list and in our cellar,” said Upton.
O’Connell St Bistro wine lists features around 290 offerings from all the major regions and most important producers from around the world and stocks over 1500 at any one time.
