Celebrity Cruises Sweeps Wine Spectator Restaurant Awards Five Years Running

July 12, 2017 Accolades No Comments Email Email

For the fifth year running, Celebrity Cruises’ one-of-a-kind wine program has been recognised by the Wine Spectator Restaurant Awards, claiming nine awards in 2017. Celebrity’s entire fleet of ocean vessels were awarded, making the brand’s wine collection the most awarded at sea.

The renowned publication recognises wine lists which “feature a well-chosen assortment of quality producers along with a thematic match to the menu in both price and style.” This is the fifth year that cruise lines have been included in the awards, which have been used to recognise the world’s best wine lists since 1981.

“It’s a great honour for our incredible wine program to continue its winning streak and claim an additional nine awards, remaining the most awarded collection at sea,” said Brian Abel, Vice President, Hotel Operations, Celebrity Cruises. “Celebrity Cruises is committed to offering an unrivalled, truly distinct experience onboard our ships, and these wins reaffirm our commitment. From our expansive wine collection, luxurious accommodations, world-class cuisine, and renowned hospitality, Celebrity truly is one-of-a-kind.”

Celebrity’s main dining room wine lists host over 300 prestigious labels, including Tignanello, Grgich Hills, Caymus Special Selection, and Guigal Cote Rotie. Celebrity’s wine menus are continually updated in order to keep the offerings fresh and exciting, featuring an extensive global collection of fine wines, which match both the modern luxury brand’s globally influenced blend of classic and contemporary cuisine, and the diverse destinations it visits across the seven continents of the world.

Onboard, a team of Sommeliers navigates guests through the award-winning wine lists, guiding them to new and exciting choices. The modern luxury brand’s teams also participate in ongoing education to keep them primed in wine theory, vintages, regional/varietal technicalities and, of course, food and wine pairings.

Celebrity offers a variety of onboard activities and experiences that immerse guests in wine education and enjoyment. These include Riedel comparative wine glass workshops, wine and food pairing events, wine tastings and more.
