The Oregon Wine Board, in association with Oregon Wine Press, has revealed the 2015 Oregon Wine A-List Award-winning restaurants. The Oregon Wine A-List Awards pay tribute to restaurants that display a superior commitment to presenting and promoting the diverse wines of Oregon.

“The Oregon Wine A-List Awards guide consumers to restaurants, both in-state and outside of Oregon, that promote and feature Oregon wines in concert with their menus and cuisines,” said Ellen Brittan, Oregon Wine Board chairwoman. “We’re very proud of each A-List Award winner’s commitment to Oregon wines.”

The 2015 Oregon Wine A-List, organized into seven geographic regions, can be found in the Oregon Wine Almanac, an annual publication of the Oregon Wine Press, online at oregonwinealist.com, and listed below.

“We received a great many nominations for restaurants that go out of their way to feature Oregon wines,” said Hilary Berg, Oregon Wine Press editor. “It’s heartening to realize how many fine dining establishments appreciate the food affinity of Oregon wines.”

Each A-List restaurant is also eligible to win a prestigious Oregon Wine A-List Regional Star Award as 2015’s most outstanding restaurant supporter of Oregon wine within its region. From among the Regional Stars, a single restaurant will be named the Oregon Wine A-List Restaurant of the Year.

The Regional Star Award winners and the Restaurant of the Year will be announced at the Oregon Wine Industry Awards Dinner at the Oregon Wine Symposium in Portland on Feb. 24, 2015. The Oregon Wine A-List Sommelier of the Year will also be announced at that time. The dinner and awards presentation will be emceed by Doug Frost, MS, MW. Tickets for the Awards Dinner may be purchased by visiting symposium.oregonwine.org.

All nominated restaurants were carefully reviewed by a select committee of Oregon wine industry professionals. Nominees were evaluated, and winners chosen, on a variety of criteria including, but not limited to, the proportion of Oregon wines on their list, diverse representation of Oregon wine varieties and geographic regions, graphic prominence of Oregon wines on the list, and the restaurant’s commitment to events and promotions that feature Oregon wines.
