Every year, Wine Enthusiast releases a list of 100 American restaurants that not only boast an extraordinary wine list, but also use wine in unique and inventive ways. This list is set apart from others in that it also takes the experience — like service and atmosphere — into account. This year, two Arizona restaurants have made the list of America’s 100 Best Wine Restaurants of 2019: Geordie’s Restaurant at the Wrigley Mansion was included for the second year in a row, and Tucson’s Feast also earned a spot.
The Wrigley Mansion is a local landmark and the location of Geordie’s — overseen by CEO and wine director Paola Embry and home to James Beard award-winning chef Christopher Gross. Per the stipulation of taking atmosphere into account, it’s no wonder Geordie’s made its second successive appearance on the Wine Enthusiast list.
