Le Restaurant has been honoured for its outstanding wine program in Wine Spectator’s 2018 Restaurant Awards. The restaurant is recognized among other winners from all over the globe as a top destination for wine lovers.

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 2,453; 1,215; and 91 winners this year in each respective category. Seven of the Grand Award winners are first timers.

Le Restaurant has won the Best of Award of Excellence:  

Best of Award of Excellence recipients offer more extensive selections with significant vintage depth and excellent breadth across multiple regions. 

Gian Müller, Food and Beverage Director at Badrutt’s Palace Hotel is delighted about the award and reveals: “In our wine cellar we store over 30,000 bottles of wine, including many treasures and rarities such as a Lafite Rotschild of 1900. The noble wines can be enjoyed in our unique Le Restaurant, where our Head Sommelier Daniel Kis advises our guest on their selection. The award makes us proud and shows that our wine cellar is one of the best addresses internationally.”
