Rumari Earns 2022 Wine Spectator Award of Excellence

Rumari at Raffles Bali has been honored ‘Award of Excellence’ for its impressive wine collection in Wine Spectator’s 2022 Restaurant Wine List Awards.

The restaurant is recognized among other winners from all over the globe as a top destination for wine lovers. Grand opened in December 2021, Rumari’s Director of Culinary, Gaetan Biesuz and team employed a phased approach to their wine list selection. They started by building the list from the ground up, selecting what they agreed should be staples for a wine list intended to match the restaurant’s cuisine. During this period, Rumari has increased the number of wine selection offered from 60 to above 100. “We are honored to be recognized within the industry with such a prestigious award,” said Gaetan Biesuz.

Rumari at Raffles Bali takes their love of wine a step further, by carefully designing the presentation of the list, training their Sommelier and team on wine to ensure guests have knowledgeable advice and giving diners an opportunity to learn more through curated wine-pairing dinner experiences.

The Award of Excellence is presented to restaurants that offer thoughtfully chosen lists, containing both quality and diverse selections that are compatible with the menu’s style and pricing. Generally, these lists average around 100 selections but can be much larger. In the year of 2022, 1,782 restaurants earned the Award of Excellence.

An additional of 1,290 restaurants, of which 137 were new to the awards program this year, achieved Best of Award of Excellence—for those that go the extra mile. These lists offer around 350 or better-chosen selections, with a vast array of wines from top producers, wide breadth of regions and vintage depth.

The Award of Excellence will act as our inspiration as we plan to continue this gradual, progressive approach in growing our wine collection to the delight of worldwide wine connoisseurs.
