Court of Master Sommeliers – New Certified Exam announced - Wed 26/5
A light-filled bar and brasserie overlooking Pittwater and the grounds of The Newport, Bert’s Bar & Brasserie has again taken out Best Hotel Restaurant Wine List. Formerly ‘Best International Hotel Restaurant Wine List’, this award which is sponsored by South Australia’s Henschke Wines is open to boutique and major hotels alike.
Unbelievable. Bert’s boasts an unbelievable wine list. This is an exciting and sensitive curation of some of the best wines from the best vintages, from Australia and the rest of the world. The selection of iconic Australian wines (including the great and difficult to obtain Wendouree) is thrilling, and the nuance and level of knowledge required to dance across the continents, as this wine list does, is frankly impressive. Whether you are a ‘by the glass’ type or ‘by the bottle’, there is a plethora of choices made available to you. And not just limited to wine, either. Pre-dinner aperitifs, sherries, beers, spirits, digestifs… the list, quite literally, goes on. There is not much more to say. This list is incredible and should not be missed. Bravo.
