Hotel and Restaurant “Weinsteige” in Stuttgart emerged as the winner in the category of Hotel Restaurant.
For the DWI Managing director Monika Reule, this year’s seventh anual competition is particularly important in view of the difficult times for the hospitality industry due to COVID-19. She explains:
With our awards, we want to show wine lovers restaurants where the regional wines are featured exceptionally well and skillfully paired with great dishes. We also hope to generate additional business for both the restauranteurs and the featured wine makers and thus create a supportive promotion for the businesses.
This year, the prizes will be awarded on site and in the presence of one of the judges who will also give the congratulatory speech to the respective winner. The judges includes SELTERS Managing director Otto J. Völker, deptuy editor-in-chief of DER FEINSCHMECKER Gabriele Heins as well as Christina Fischer, Paula Bosch, and Gunnar Tietz. Every year the team sets a high quality standard for the evaluation of the restaurants. For example, in addition to the scope and quality of the wine list, factors such as pricing, employee training, wines by the glass offerings, and the possibility of hosting wine events are factors in the judge’s descision making.
