Raise your glasses, Reston: Vinifera Wine Bar & Bistro has been awarded the 2014 Wine Spectator Award of Excellence for the fourth year in a row, it was announced Wednesday.
Wine Spectator's Restaurant Wine List Awards recognize restaurants whose wine lists offer interesting selections, are appropriate to their cuisine and appeal to a wide range of wine lovers, according to a news release.Vinifera's Sommelier Nicole Bernard hand-selects a rotating list of more than 300 exotic wines, 30 of which are served from a special cruvinet system from behind the bar. Bernard strives to present patrons with new, exciting and rare wines, many of which have a limited availability and are changed out frequently.
"We are honored to receive this award again this year," said Bernard. "At Vinifera, finding the most spectacular wines to perfectly complement the cuisine is a labor of love for us."
