Wine Spectator Magazine – Wine List Best of Award of Excellence 2014 - 2020

This international wine review magazine annually identifies a limited number of the world’s best restaurant wine lists.

The Best of Award of Excellence recognises a small number of restaurant wine programs that offer a well-chosen selection of wines from quality producers along with a thematic match to the food menu in both price and style. For seven consecutive years, Appellation has received this coveted international award.

“Appellation is nestled in the Barossa Valley, just an hour outside Adelaide, known for offering one of Australia’s finest dining experiences. Their intimate and understated elegance includes sweeping views of the surrounding vineyards and exceptional food presented with finesse.”
