BETHEL — Modern Barn has been honored for its outstanding wine program in Wine Spectator’s 2023 Restaurant Awards, which celebrate the world’s best restaurants for wine. “In a time of technological innovation, restaurants offer the human experience diners are hungry for—listening to their customers and offering a personalized experience,” said Marvin R. Shanken, Editor and Publisher of Wine Spectator. “This annual issue celebrates the places where wine is at the top of that conversation. I’m pleased to congratulate all 3,505 restaurants for their dedication to wine and wine-loving diners.”

“Modern Barn is honored to be recognized by Wine Spectator with the Award of Excellence for our wine program. This year’s winners hail from 50 states and 75 countries. The award is given to restaurants offering well-curated lists with 90 selections or more matching the restaurant’s cuisine in both style and pricing, giving guests a well-rounded experience. This year, 2001 restaurants achieved the Award of Excellence and we are so proud to be one of them.”

Launched in 1981, the Restaurant Awards represent the world’s only program focused exclusively on restaurant wine service. They are assigned on three levels: the Award of Excellence, the Best of Award of Excellence, and the Grand Award, with 2,001; 1,411; and 93 winners this year in each respective category.

Modern Barn has won the Award of Excellence: The Award of Excellence recognizes restaurants whose wine lists feature a well-chosen assortment of quality producers along with a thematic match to the menu in both price and style.
