Bentley’s Grill Named Oregon Wine A-List Restaurant!

Oregon Wine A-List Award-winning restaurantsThe Oregon Wine Board, in association with Oregon Wine Press, revealed the 2015 Oregon Wine A-List Award-winning restaurants earlier this month, and we are proud to announce that Bentley’s Grill is among the select few to earn an Oregon Wine A-List Award in the Willamette Valley region! In fact, we were 1 of just 2 Salem restaurants to receive this honor.

Formerly known as the Superior Cellar Awards, The Oregon Wine A-List Awards honor restaurants —both in-state and outside of Oregon—that promote and feature the wines of Oregon on their wine lists.

“We received a great many nominations for restaurants that go out of their way to feature Oregon wines,” said Hilary Berg, Oregon Wine Press editor. “It’s heartening to realize how many fine dining establishments appreciate the food affinity of Oregon wines.”

All nominated restaurants were carefully reviewed by a select committee of Oregon wine industry professionals. Nominees were evaluated, and winners chosen, on a variety of criteria including, but not limited to, the proportion of Oregon wines on their list, diverse representation of Oregon wine varieties and geographic regions, graphic prominence of Oregon wines on the list, and the restaurant’s commitment to events and promotions that feature Oregon wines.

We must say, it feels pretty good to be on the A-List and to be recognized for our commitment to the wines of Oregon. We are known locally for our distinctive selection of wines from Oregon on our by-the-bottle and/or by-the-glass wine lists along with our Wine Tastings featuring a local winery every 2nd and 4th Wednesday of the month.
