Macao, July 8, 2019) – Sands Resorts Macao and Sands® Macao restaurants have once again been recognised for their outstanding wine offerings in Wine Spectator’s 2019 Restaurant Awards, with 11 restaurants picking up prestigious ‘Best of Award of Excellence’ commendations.

This is the seventh consecutive year that the U.S.-based Wine Spectator magazine has bestowed prestigious awards on Sands Resorts Macao and Sands Macao restaurants for their outstanding wine lists.

Wine Spectator began its programme to recognise the world’s best wine lists in 1981. There are three levels of recognition: Award of Excellence, Best of Award of Excellence and Grand Award, each honouring restaurants whose wine lists feature a well-chosen assortment of quality producers along with a thematic match to the menu. Lists are focused and emphasise discovery. This year restaurants in almost 80 countries and territories were highlighted for the excellence of their wine programmes.

Tom Connolly, Senior Vice President of Food and Beverage Operations, Sands China Ltd. commented: “
Wine Spectator is one of the world’s leading authorities so we are delighted our restaurants have again been recognised for their great cellars. In recent years there has been huge growth in the number of quality winemakers, and reflecting exciting new labels alongside classic favourites is as challenging as it is intriguing. We are thrilled these efforts have not passed unnoticed.”


With Macao designated a UNESCO Creative City of Gastronomy in 2017, there has never been a better time to explore Sands Resorts Macao and Sands Macao’s award-winning array of great dining options.
