CALGARY — Post Hotel & Spa has been honoured for its outstanding wine program in Wine Spectator’s 2024 Restaurant Awards, which celebrate the world’s best restaurants for wine.

“The restaurant industry is growing and thriving, with restaurant openings surpassing pre-pandemic levels for the first time. To take advantage of the uptick, restaurateurs are re-investing in their wine programs,” says Marvin R. Shanken, editor and publisher, Wine Spectator. “Restaurants that make wine a priority are what the awards program is all about. I’m pleased to congratulate all 3,777 restaurants for their dedication to wine and exemplary wine lists.”

“With one of Canada’s most prestigious wine cellars, The Post Hotel & Spa is honored to receive the Wine Spectator Grand Award for the 23rd-consecutive year,” says Wine director, Julian Simard-Gillis. “With more than 20,000 bottles representing more than 3,800 labels from around the world, our collection is a testament to over four decades of passionate curating and collecting. Our knowledgeable team of sommeliers take great pride in offering these exquisite wines, all of which are ageing beautifully and include older Bordeaux, Burgundy, and Barolo, going back almost 70 years. More than 95 per cent of our wines were acquired at release and have been stored meticulously since, ensuring they are presented in their finest condition.”

They are assigned on three levels: the Award of Excellence, the Best of Award of Excellence and the Grand Award, with 2,150; 1,531; and 96 winners this year in each respective category.
