We are delighted to have received the Wine Spectator’s “Best of Award of Excellence” for the wine list of our gourmet restaurant “Zur Weinsteige” located in Stuttgart. This is one of the world’s most prestigious awards and only eight wine bars and restaurants in Germany have been presented with this award so far.
Every year, the internationally renowned New York wine lifestyle magazine Wine Spectator gives awards on three levels. The “Best of Award of Excellence”, which is the second best level, honours perfectly selected wine lists that refer thematically to the price and style of the restaurant’s menu and in addition to this display vintage depth and an excellent breadth across different wine-growing regions. Our wine list that has already been awarded several prizes has deeply impressed the jurors of the Wine Spectator.
The historic vaults of our wine cellar dating from 1870 offer ideal storage conditions: cool temperature and ideal constant humidity are excellent for about 15000 bottles of more than 1000 different wines from all over the world and allow the wines to mature.
You may come to our restaurant because of the rich selection of Riesling wines, which is the biggest in Baden-Württemberg, or because of the recommendations of Andreas Scherle, the manager of our restaurant and a real wine expert who always carefully chooses the wine that goes perfectly with your menu. Our gourmet cuisine has been awarded several prizes, too and dining in our restaurant “Zur Weinsteige” can be compared to a culinary journey! The team of the restaurant “Zur Weinsteige”, Jörg Scherle, our chef and Andreas Scherle, the manager of our restaurant and wine expert are looking forward to welcoming you.
The Best of Award of Excellence:
“Our second-tier award, created to give special recognition to restaurants that clearly exceed the requirements of the Award of Excellence. These lists typically offer 350 or more selections, along with superior presentation, and display either vintage depth, with several vertical offerings of top wines, or excellent breadth across several wine regions.” (Source: winespectator.com)
