August 10, 2014 (GENEVA, NEW YORK) — Belhurst Castle has yet again earned a Wine Spectator Restaurant Award for the superb wine list. This is the 20th consecutive year of Belhurst wining this prestigious award.

Wine Spectator's Restaurant Wine List Awards recognize restaurants whose wine lists offer interesting selections, are appropriate to their cuisine and appeal to a wide range of wine lovers.

According to Wine Spectator, to qualify for an award, the list must present complete, accurate wine information. It must include vintages and appellations for all selections, including wines available by the glass. Complete producer names and correct spellings are mandatory, while the overall presentation and appearance of the list is also taken into consideration. After meeting these basic requirements, lists are judged for one of our three awards.

Kelly Towers is Belhursts’ very own Wine Sommelier. She is responsible for managing the wine list and assisting diners with their wine selections. Kelly is constantly keeping up with the latest trends in wine varietals, and tracking where on the globe they are succeeding. “I strive to offer something for everyone from beginner palates to the most sophisticated wine connoisseur”, says Towers.

All of the wine served at Belhurst is stored in the basement of the Castle where it stays at an even cool temperature year round. Towers keeps an active rotating wine by the glass program, so there is always something new to try at Belhurst.

The full list of award winners is featured in the August 31 issue of Wine Spectator, available on newsstands July 22. All of the restaurants can also be found in the restaurant search at
