Wine Spectator releases a lot of lists each year, from best wines to best places to buy wine. It’s most recent ranking, “Where to Drink Well,” includes some neighborhood favorites that were honored for having the best wine lists in the region.
Adelmo’s Ristorante is all about classic Italian with a Mediterranean twist, which is true of its wine list as well. Tucked away in Inwood Village, the restaurant specializes in Italian red varietals and received a one wineglass rating from Wine Spectator (three wineglasses are reserved for Grand Award winners; the only joint in Dallas to receive that honor was Pappas Bros. Steakhouse).
DISH Preston Hollow also got a single wineglass rating. With a wine list that pulls from some of the best wineries in California and Europe, DISH showcases classics alongside some more unusual varietals like tempranillo.
The Mansion Restaurant touts itself as the “most memorable dining experience in Dallas” and Wine Spectator seems to agree, bestowing two wineglasses on the Turtle Creek favorite. The magazine includes mention and a photo of wine director Jennifer Eby, and highlights the restaurant’s unique collection of California Burgundy and Bordeaux options.
Tucked into NorthPark Center, Season’s 52 has an extensive wine list curated by Master Sommelier George Miliotes, one of less than 250 in the world to earn that coveted title. What makes their list extra special is the number of wines you can try by the glass. It earned a single wineglass ranking.
