Meet the Iowa Winners of the 2018 Wine Spectator Award

Cheers, Iowa! Wine Spectator Magazine recently released the winners of the 2018 Wine Spectator Restaurant Awards, and nine of the award winners are from the Hawkeye state.

Each year, Wine Spectator Magazine features and honors wine-serving restaurants around the world for their strong commitment to excellence. First introduced in 1981, the Wine Spectator’s Restaurant Awards are given across three categories. These are:

  • The Award of Excellence
  • The Best of Award of Excellence 
  • The Grand Award

This year, the program honored around 3,759 wine restaurants from more than 75 countries and 50 US states. In addition, they also awarded very special awards to two Iowa restaurants:

Both Iowa restaurants have received the special ‘Best of Award of Excellence’ award.

Below is a full list of winners of the prestigious Wine Spectator’s 2018 Restaurant Awards:
