We are thrilled with the recognition by Wine Spectator as we strive to be stewards of this wine list – through the acquisition of the wine, the handling of the wine, the education in how our team serves the wine and the joy it provides to our guests.

The Resort at Port Ludlow is proud to announce that The Fireside has earned Wine Spectator’s 2015 Best of Award of Excellence.

The Best of Award of Excellence was created to give special recognition to restaurants that clearly exceed the requirements of the Award of Excellence. These wine lists typically offer 350 or more selections, along with superior presentation, and display either vintage depth, with several vertical offerings of top wines, or excellent breadth across several wine regions.

The Fireside will be featured on http://www.winespectator.com/ and in the August 31st issue, which hits newsstands on Tuesday, July 21st.

"Food and wine – or often, wine and food – need loving care to bring out the best in each. We are thrilled with the recognition by Wine Spectator as we strive to be stewards of this wine list – through the acquisition of the wine, the handling of the wine, the education in how our team serves the wine and the joy it provides to our guests," said Debbie Wardrop, General Manager, The Resort at Port Ludlow.

Cellar Master Anne Sackett received her Sommelier Certification through the International Sommelier Guide and in 2009 joined The Resort at Port Ludlow as the Cellar Master for The Fireside. The curated wine list consists of more than 600 selections from Washington State, Oregon, California, and the old world.

The Fireside is known for its blend of regional fare utilizing the rich bounty of local farms and fisheries. Hand crafted cheeses and locally sourced poultry, beef and lamb are often featured on the daily dinner menu. Executive Chef Dan Ratigan and the skilled culinary team celebrate the best the Pacific Northwest has to offer as they “play” with these bountiful products and create menus to pair with this well considered wine list.

The Resort at Port Ludlow is a Master Planned Community that is nestled on the shores of the Puget Sound, less than ten minutes from the west end of the Hood Canal Bridge. Once a logging and ship building town, Port Ludlow has grown into a vibrant community that hosts beautiful residential neighborhoods, a 37-room boutique waterfront inn, an award winning waterfront restaurant, a 300-slip marina, and a championship 18-hole golf course, recognized as the “Most Scenic in the World” by Esquire Magazine.
