HIGHLAND, CA – The Pines Modern Steakhouse at Yaamava’ Resort & Casino at San Manuel has been honored for its outstanding wine program in Wine Spectator’s 2022 Restaurant Awards, which celebrate the world’s best restaurants for wine. 

“It is such an honor to receive this prestigious recognition from Wine Spectator, a recognized expert in both wine and wine culture, for the second year in a row,” said Peter Arceo, General Manager of Yaamava’ Resort & Casino. “Achieving level two, the ‘Best of Award of Excellence,’ is not only a reflection of our beverage and wine team’s determination to be a leader in the industry and create a one-of-a-kind experience for our guests, but also speaks to the tribe’s continued support and our best-in-class approach in both service and products.” 

Wine Spectator began its program to recognize the world’s best wine lists in 1981. There are three levels: the Award of Excellence with 1,782 winners; the Best of Award of Excellence with 1,290 winners; and the Grand Award with 97 winners this year. The Pines has won the Best of Award of Excellence.
