Bottle Stop Wine Bar, located in Historic Occoquan, announced its multi-year selection to Wine Spectator’s Wine List Awards. The Award of Excellence is granted to restaurants whose wine list typically offers at least 90 selections, features a well-chosen assortment of quality producers, along with a thematic match to the menu in both price and style. These lists are well-focused and tend to emphasize discovery.
“We’re honored to have been recognized for two consecutive years by one of the premier international wine publications for our wine program,” said Bottle Stop owners Emil and Kim Wigode. “Our Wine Spectator selection recognizes our team’s commitment to develop a wine list that rivals the top wine lists in Washington, D.C. and solidifies our place among the best restaurants and wine bars throughout the DMV.”
To complement Bottle Stop’s award-winning wine list, Executive Chef John Swords is crafting a fresh entrée-focused menu comprised of seasonal fare and cuisine. Chef Swords has over a decade of fine dining kitchen experience, most recently as Sous Chef at fellow award-winning restaurant Poplar Springs Inn.
The complete list of award winners is available online and will be published in the Aug. 31 issue of Wine Spectator (available on newsstands July 17).
