Brisbane's Bacchus wins gourmet award
BRISBANE'S dining scene continues to evolve, easily making it a worthy contender for its Melbourne and Sydney counterparts.
The latest accolade for the city's restaurant landscape goes to Bacchus at South Bank with the awarding of Gourmet Traveller three-glass rating for its wine list, for the fourth year in a row.
This follows from July's 2016 Wine Spectator Restaurant Wine List acknowledgement (Best Award of Excellence.)
Curated by sommelier Andrew Giblin, Bacchus's wine list has more than 200 world-class presentations.
"The list is a guided tour of the great wine-producing regions of the world, and, like a great menu, provides a wide selection of flavours and styles,” Mr Giblin said.
"The list is constantly evolving as new vintages and some rare museum releases become available,” he said.
Bacchus is also the home of Dom Perignon in Queensland, the first and only in Queensland and one of only three venues in Australia.
Bacchus is at Rydges South Bank, on the corner of Grey and Glenelg Sts where head chef Mark Penna delivers food to equal the award-winning wine list.
