Travel Daily - - News -

VISI­TORS to Crowne Plaza Surfers Par­adise are cer­tain to have an ex­ten­sive choice of bev­er­ages, af­ter the prop­erty’s Balt­hazar Wine & Din­ing venue re­ceived a “3 Glass” rat­ing from Aus­tralia’s Wine List of the Year Awards.

Som­me­lier and wine & bev­er­age man­ager, David Stevens-Cas­tro - pic­tured with a cel­e­bra­tory tip­ple - has taken the eatery to the top level within 24 months of its open­ing.

In the world of wine a 3 Glass rat­ing is the high­est that can be achieved, and is said to be equiv­a­lent to Miche­lin Stars or Hats given for gas­tro­nomic ex­cel­lence.

Balt­hazar of­fers more than 500 lo­cal and global wines, mar­ried with a range of ta­pas along­side a pri­vate de­gus­ta­tion ex­pe­ri­ence for up to 18 guests.

The judges hailed Stevens- Cas­tro’s tal­ent and pas­sion for wine, as ev­i­denced by the “as­tute list­ings” in­clud­ing top wines by the glass at ac­ces­si­ble prices.
