It has been awarded the Wine Spectator’s 2017 Award of Excellence for its wine program.
“We are very honored to have received the 2017 Wine Spectator’s Award of Excellence,” said Brian Hein, Portola Hotel & Spa’s Food and Beverage Director. “This award shows that our wine list is not only diverse with a variety of selections but is also designed to accommodate the most discriminating connoisseurs’ palate while simultaneously satisfying all wine lovers.”
Wine Spectator’s Restaurant Awards recognize restaurants whose wine lists offer interesting selections, are appropriate to their cuisine and appeal to a wide range of wine lovers.
The Award of Excellence is Wine Spectator Restaurant Awards’ top honor, in which a restaurant offers at least 90 selections, features a well-chosen assortment of quality producers, along with a thematic match to the menu in both price and style.
The wine selection at Jacks Monterey includes a selection that includes 30% local Monterey County wines, including Top Tier Wines such as Bernardus Sauvignon Blanc and the Talbott Pinot Noir.
Jacks Monterey also offers wine on draft from 10SPAN Vineyards including its Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. 10SPAN supports the Ventana Wildlife Society’s mission to conserve the native wildlife and habitats of California’s Central Coast.
