For The Second Consecutive Year the MGM Grand receives most 2011 Wine Specatator Restaurant Wine List awards In The Country

MGM Grand in Las Vegas has been awarded  extraordinary number of wins for the 2011 Wine Spectator’s Restaurant Wine List Awards. For the second consecutive year, an astounding 11 MGM Grand restaurants including Tom Colicchio’s Craftsteak, NOBHILL TAVERN by Michael Mina, L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon, SEABLUE, Diego, Pearl, Shibuya, Emeril’s New Orleans Fish House, Wolfgang Puck’s Bar & Grill and Fiamma Trattoria garnered awards, more than any other single property in the world.

Once again, Joël Robuchon Restaurant's wine program received top honors and “three glasses” with The Grand Award. In total, MGM Grand restaurants amassed an astonishing 19 glasses, maintaining the record for the most at a single property.

“For the last year, we have committed ourselves to maintaining our exemplary wine program,” Grand Director of Wine Brian Weitzman said. “Our team, which includes an impressive 14 sommeliers and 10 certified sake sommeliers—the most at any property in the country—continue to strive to offer the best service and experience for wine novices and experts, alike.”

To qualify for an award, each restaurant’s wine list must follow strict standards and provide an extensive amount of information, including vintages and appellations for all bottles and wines by the glass. Everything from complete producer names and correct spellings to overall presentation are considered. If they are selected, restaurants are granted one of three awards – The Grand Award (“three glasses”), The Best of Award of Excellence (“two glasses”) or the Award of Excellence (“one glass”).

Scott Sibella, President & COO of MGM Grand, said, “I am extremely proud of our wine program and team. We are honored that our dedication to excellence has been recognized.”

Known for its dedication to personalized, attentive wine service, MGM Grand caters to a variety of palates, occasions and budgets. Approximately 74,000 bottles of wine are housed within the walls of MGM Grand, representing 6,242 wine labels and 170 selections available by the glass.
