Wine Spectator Award
For the seventh year in a row The Settlers Inn has received the Award of Excellence presented by Wine Spectator magazine.
The honor recognizes a well-chosen selection of quality wine producers, along with a thematic match to the Inn’s menu in both price and style, according to Wine Spectator. “My husband Grant and I are proud of the consistency and longevity of our wine program and the dedication and skill of our sommelier,” says Settlers Proprietor Jeanne Genzlinger.
“Over the years I have expanded our wine list, which featured mostly American wines, to an international list covering the major wine regions in the world,” adds Settlers’ Wine Steward Claude Briere (pictured).
“I have always tried to add good value wines to the list,” says Briere. “So, I am very proud that over the last seven years Wine Spectator has recognized The Inn as part of the 15% of award winners that offer an affordable wine list of the highest quality.”
Wine Spectator is the premiere magazine for people who enjoy fine dining and wine, cooking and entertaining, world travel and the arts. The publication’s annual awards recognize restaurants whose wine lists offer interesting selections, which are appropriate to their cuisine and which appeal to a wide range of wine lovers.
On Friday, August 15 guests to The Settlers Inn will have an opportunity to enjoy a specially chosen selection of wines from the Mediterranean complimented by cuisine by Guest Chef Alan Kehoe.
