Dayton, Oregon (PRWEB) October 24, 2013
As the grape harvest continues in Oregon's Willamette Valley wine country, the Joel Palmer House restaurant in the historic town of Dayton, Oregon is honored to be named one of the 2013 Diners' Choice Award winners for the Top 100 Restaurants with the Most Notable Wine Lists. These awards reflect the combined opinions of more than 5 million reviews submitted by verified OpenTable diners for more than 15,000 restaurants in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.
"The fabulous food is only half the excitement at these award-winning restaurants," says Caroline Potter, OpenTable Chief Dining Officer. "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."
"We relish the rare opportunity to cook in such an extraordinary wine growing region. To reflect our admiration for and pride in our local bounty, our wine list focuses specifically on Oregon wines, with many selections coming from local, artisan producers. Pinot Noir is the heart of the list with over 500 individual pinots from which to choose," notes Chef Christopher Czarnecki of the Joel Palmer House.
"Our cooking at the Joel Palmer House revolves around wild, Oregon mushrooms gathered by hand and many other locally produced ingredients, therefore the pairing of our dishes with wines from our local region creates a taste sensation that is unbeatable! We invite you to experience it for yourself," concludes Chef Czarnecki.
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.
