When you want to enjoy a delicious meal along with a great wine selection in Wichita, look no further than dining establishments who have received Wine Spectator awards.

In 2021, five Wichita restaurants were recognized as some of the “world’s best restaurants for wine," earning 2021 Wine Spectator awards.

The magazine chooses award winners on three levels. The top is the Grand Award, given to only 103 restaurants in 2021. The next level is the Best of Award of Excellence, which this year was given to Wine Dive, a regular on the list since 2016. This category recognizes wine programs that offer 300 selections or more and offer both vintage depth and regional breadth, with most wine territories represented. A total of 1,141 restaurants achieved the Best of Award of Excellence in 2021.

Four other Wichita restaurants received an Award of Excellence: Scotch & Sirloin, 6S Steakhouse, Siena Tuscan Steakhouse and Vora Restaurant European. The Award of Excellence is given to restaurants with thoughtfully chosen selections appropriate for the cuisine and representative of a range of regions and styles. These lists can vary in size but typically offer 90 options or more. This year 1,673 restaurants earned the Award of Excellence.
