The celebrated Chinese restaurant Zi Yat Heen at Four Seasons Hotel Macao, Cotail Strip has earned top accolades from Wine Spectator again this year. The Best of Award of Excellence, part of Wine Spectator’s 2017 Restaurant Awards, marks the restaurant’s fifth consecutive win – an honour enjoyed since 2013.
“It is our great pleasure to be recognised by Wine Spectator, the leading wine authority, again,” says Kris Kaminsky, General Manager, Four Seasons Hotel Macao. “The award embodies the passion and continuous effort from our Sommelier Kaleb Paw, Zi Yat Heen Director David Wong and his team, and the Chinese culinary team headed by Chef Charles (Cheung Chi Choi); they have worked hard to maintain very high standards. And we continue our commitment to providing customised fine dining experiences for our guests, strengthening our presence in the Chinese culinary scene.”
The restaurant wine list award program features three levels: Award of Excellence, Best of Award of Excellence, and Grand Award. Each level follows select qualifications utilised by a multi-judge panel. The criteria range from quantitative measurements, such as number of wine selection to depth, range and display of the list. With Best of Award of Excellence, Zi Yat Heen successfully retained the two-glass honour.
Founded in 1976, Wine Spectator magazine introduced its Restaurant Awards program to review wine lists in 1981. They spotlight restaurants that offer interesting wine selections appropriate to their cuisine, appealing to a range of wine lovers.
