 Spur Corporation’s fine dining establishments receive Platinum Diners Club Award

October 25, 2018

Two of Spur Corporation’s high end restaurants have been presented with Platinum status at the highly esteemed and sought-after Diners Club Wine List Awards 2018.

The Hussar Grill and Casa Bella both received this coveted symbol of distinction, for the 10th and 2nd consecutive years respectively.

The annual awards, now in its 24th year, seek out eateries that have innovative wine lists and are meticulous in offering compatible food and wine menus. The awards’ categories and competition requirements are in line with global market trends and Diners Club’s contribution towards service excellence in the hospitality and tourism industries.

This year’s panel of judges represented a unique mix of talents and voices in today’s food and wine industry such as restaurant and wine experts, reviewers, media members, and chefs. The judging criteria was developed with the help of the South African Sommeliers’ Association and an emphasis was placed on the personality of the list as well as those where the list matches the style of the establishment.

“It is a great honour to achieve this prestigious award for both of our brands and it makes us really proud to present these wine lists to our guests,” says Lauren Venter, High End Brand Manager of Spur Corporation, who was on hand to receive the awards in September.
