The WSHO Drink + Eat 2023 event was born out of Wine & Spirits Magazine’s annual Restaurant Poll, which reports on the favorite restaurant wines from top restaurateurs and wine directors around the country as determined by their responses to the Restaurant Poll. This tasting celebrates the featured wineries as well as the chefs and sommeliers who contribute to the Poll’s ongoing success. 2023 will mark the first time in three years the event has been held following the pandemic

Our WSHO Drink + Eat 2023 event draws its inspiration from the success of our Restaurant Poll issue. As our most visible issue of the year, it generates appreciable media interest, with past Poll results having been featured in the New York Times, USA Today and the Associated Press. With five James Beard Awards for distinguished wine writing—more than any other wine publication—we offer the most articulate, sophisticated context for wineries, restaurateurs and sponsors to showcase their brands.
