Wine spectator deals

I work for a four diamond eatery at a medium sized resort. We have had the Best of Award for a while now, prominently displayed by our fire alarm , and no one talks about it. We also have a resort wide policy of only featuring wines on our lists that garner points of 88 or higher from Spectator or Parker.

No guest asks about those scores either. And no, I am not a huge fan of the score-based list making :.

My list received the Award of Excellence for the seven years I submitted it. I doubt if it brought anyone into the restaurant, but a row of the framed awards. It demonstrates to an employer that you are capable of putting together a list that is reasonably accurate and. No matter what is on it! As shown by the fake list featuring low-scoring wines for a non-existent restaurant that won the award in The most value it had for me was the extra focus it requires.

It makes you think even more about what would make your list better.

Thanks for bringing this up as it is important to know what the actual effects are from attaining the "coveted" award. I know that at my work, years ago "they" placed an emphasis on getting the award. Nowadays, "they" are trying to liquidate the stock! They've completely lost interest!

What I find interesting about this is that if these awards make little to no difference now, they will make even less of a difference over the next ten years. It is my understanding that the fastest growing demographic of wine consumer is the age range.

Just look at their advertisements. Most of this younger demographic myself included uses the internet to do their research, and given the rapidly increasing influence of blogs, podcasts, forums, and Gary Vaynerchuk-esque paradigm shifts, the influence of Spectator and Wine Advocate will be far less than they always used to be. That's not to say that these publications can't change their focus to attempt to attract these younger consumers, and clearly, they still have significant and reaching influence, but ten years from now, I will be curious to see how things have evolved.

I agree with you Dan about your theory on the future I ran a restaurant and wine program in Southeast Idaho for a few years so that alone may make this post not very important- ha! Like I said- maybe it was because we were in the middle-of-nowhere, but many, many guests were impressed. Our town has a lot of tourist that pass through each year because of Yellowstone Park, Jackson Hole, Tetons, etc I myself find their awarding program especially at the Best Of level fairly ridiculous, and merely a source of enormous yearly income I would have to agree with Bryan even in NYC.

There are many people who travel for business here and seek out restaurants based on WS awards.

I'm disappointed that the search feature only seraches by wine name. I would love to be able to search by varietal, region, rating, etc. I'll have to further assess that app but so far I am really questioing if I want to pay a monthly subscription for an app that so far doesn't seem to be very useful. Be wary if you subscribe to the expert wine reviews. When you no longer want the service there is no way to deactivate online.
