NEW YORK CITY, NY (WSFA) - Wine Spectator, a leading authority on wine, has released the winners of its 2016 Restaurant Awards, which recognize outstanding wine programs.
Several Alabama restaurants are included on the list, including Acre in Auburn and The A&P Social in Montgomery.
Wine Spectator began the award program in 1981 to recognize the world's best wine lists. Each restaurant receives between one and three wine glasses (the higher the number of glasses the better the wine list quality). Alabama's nominees are listed here.
