Our Restaurant Wine List Awards are given out annually based on the list and inventory available at the time. We appreciate hearing from customers whether restaurants have maintained those standards over the following year and take that into consideration for subsequent years' awards. You can find a description of the standards for each award level at our About the Restaurant Awards page.

If you feel a restaurant no longer meets those criteria, if you are a member of WineSpectator.com, you can post a public comment and/or star rating on our Restaurant Search about your experience and that will be shared with other readers. Our staff reviews all comments. 

If you are not a website member or prefer to keep your feedback private, you can send an email to the awards team at restaurantawards@mshanken.com.
