In 2012 Castello Banfi La Taverna has once again received the Wine Spectator’s Restaurant Award of Excellence for its wine list. Wine Spectator's Restaurant Wine List Awards recognize those restaurants whose wine lists present captivating selections, which are suitable to their cuisine and appeal to an extensive variety of wine lovers. To be eligible for an award, the list has to show full, precise wine information. It has to include vintages and appellations for all selections, as well as wines offered by the glass. It is also taken into consideration having the overall presentation and appearance of the list while the complete producer names and exact spellings are mandatory. Wine Spectator, considered one of the most influential international specialized magazines, recognizes this excellence award to fewer than 3.000 restaurants all over the world. Taverna Banfi is open to daily visitors as well as guests of Castello Banfi – Il Borgos, the comfortable and charmingly elegant 14 luxurious rooms and suites nestled alongside the castle keep.
