WineSpectatorGrandAwar2014Winning a Wine Spectator Grand Award has gotten to be a habit for Boulder’s Flagstaff House. The Monette family’s commitment to fine wine and its 15,000-bottle wine cellar mean that it has again won this prestigious award, as it has every year since 1983. Wine Spectator‘s Grand Award goes only to the world’s very best wine lists. One of the criteria is a selection of 1,500 or more wines from the world’s classic wine regions. In addition to a broad and deep wine cellar, service and ambiance are considered. How exclusive is the Grand Award? This year, there are only 74 Grand Award winners worldwide.

Fine food, a sparkling ambiance, perfect service and an awesome wine list keep the Flagstaff House a perpetual top award winner from 'Wine Spectator.'
