Ristorante Rinuccini has been awarded Best Wine Experience in Leinster at the 8th annual Irish Restaurant Awards 2016 held in Dublin on16th May 2016. The Irish Restaurant Awards, known as the Food Oscars, are the largest and most acclaimed industry awards, set up to recognise excellence within Irish restaurants.

Best Wine KilkennyWe are absolutely thrilled to receive this accolade from the Irish Restaurant Awards. We are very proud of our exclusive Italian wine list and are lucky enough to spend time visiting the ‘Cantinas’ in Italy to find exceptional wines to bring back home to Ireland for our customers to enjoy.

Our front of house team undertake monthly training to help perfect product and supplier knowledge and to really understand the character of the Italian wines that we have available at Ristorante Rinuccini. This award is a fantastic acknowledgement of their commitment to providing our customers with an excellent service and a memorable ‘wining and dining’ experience.

Exclusive Wines Handpicked in Lazio, Italyx

The restaurant offers a number of exclusive Italian wines, imported directly from Owner and Head Chef Antonio’s home surrounds of Lazio on the west coast of Italy and handpicked by the family from the very best vineyards.

Best WIne MenuShowcasing our wines, the restaurant houses a custom-made wine cellar that diners can visit to choose their favourite wines. The cellar is also visible through special glass portals built into the floor of the upper dining area. We have recently added new exclusive Italian wines to Rinuccini’s menu – which can be seen and tasted in our cellar.

The winners of the Irish Restaurant Awards have been assessed by a panel of mystery guests, food writers and journalists while food and wine menus were submitted for judging by Bord Bia.

A percentage of the overall score was voted on by the public. It’s a thrill to receive this award for our wine offer and we would like to thank our customers for taking the time to vote for us.

We hope you can visit Rinuccini soon and perhaps sample something from our cellar!
