"Under the guidance of sommeliers, these expansive and unique wine lists span adventure, education and value. You're guaranteed to find a perfect pairing at any of these standouts."
The Diners' Choice Awards for the Top 100 Wine Lists in the U.S. are generated from more than 5 million reviews collected from verified OpenTable diners between October 1, 2012, and September 30, 2013. All restaurants with a minimum "overall" score and number of qualifying reviews were included for consideration. Qualifying restaurants were then scored and sorted according to the percentage of qualifying reviews for which "notable wine list" was selected as a special feature.
Based on this methodology, the following restaurants, listed in alphabetical order, comprise the Top 100 Wine Lists in the U.S. according to OpenTable diners. The complete list may also be viewed at http://www.opentable.com/wine.
