It is with great pleasure to announce that The Townsend Hotel’s Rugby Grille has again received a Wine Spectator’s 2020 Best of Award of Excellence!

Wine Spectator’s Restaurant Awards recognize restaurants whose wine lists offer interesting selections, are appropriate to their cuisine and appeal to a wide range of wine lovers. To qualify for this award, a restaurant wine list must present complete, accurate information, including vintages and appellations for all selections.

The Rugby Grille has achieved this award every year since 2016 and it has 425 selections and over 3,000 bottles of wine in their inventory. “I am very proud of the work our amazing Rugby Grille sommelier team has put into maintaining a world-class wine list! They are always enhancing our selections and each time they continue to amaze our clientele and our visiting guests! The staff continually strive to be a destination for a memorable culinary and wine experience.” Steven Kalczynski, Managing Director at The Townsend.
