BILOXI, Miss. (August 2017)—Three award-winning restaurants at Beau Rivage Resort & Casino have been honored for their outstanding wine programs in Wine Spectator’s 2017 Restaurant Awards. BR Prime, Stalla and Jia have been recognized among other winners from all over the globe as a top destination for wine lovers and are three of just nine restaurants recognized in the state of Mississippi.
“Restaurants continue to raise their game when it comes to wine, and we are particularly proud to present this year’s winners,” said Marvin R. Shanken, Editor & Publisher, Wine Spectator. “As wine becomes more important to diners, the Awards program is thriving—with an increasing number of entries, as well as growing print, digital and social audiences. Wine Spectator congratulates each and every award winner.”
BR Prime, Stalla and Jia each received the Award of Excellence. This award recognizes restaurants whose wine lists feature a well-chosen assortment of quality producers along with a thematic match to the menu in both price and style.
“We’re proud of this award and are constantly reviewing and updating our menus to provide guests with superior selections from popular wineries, as well as from some lesser known gems,” said Beau Rivage Sommelier Harry Hall. “We want every guest to feel comfortable with their selection and the service we provide. We’re open to suggestions and have often brought new wines in because of customer feedback. For us, it’s really all about guest satisfaction.”
Wine Spectator began its program to recognize the world’s best wine lists in 1981. The complete list of award winners can be found online at Restaurants.WineSpectator.com, where visitors can search and access exclusive content on the more than 3,500 restaurants. The list is also available on iOS via the Restaurant Awards app, which allows users to look for dining spots in any location with maps, choosing by wine strengths, cuisine type, pricing and more.
