Wildhorse Resort & Casino

PENDLETON, OR – Wildhorse Resort & Casino’s fine dining restaurant Plateau has received Wine Spectator‘s Award of Excellence. The award is given to restaurants that offer meticulously curated wine lists with approximately 90 selections or more (Plateau’s wine list features a selection of 170 choices, with an inventory of over 1,500 bottles). These lists feature wines from quality producers, often not readily available at local wine stores, ensuring guests have a unique and exclusive wine experience.

“We are extremely honored to receive the Award of Excellence from Wine Spectator,” said Diana Dumitru, Manager of Plateau. “This recognition is a testament to our commitment to providing our guests with exceptional food and wine. We are proud to offer an extensive wine list that showcases the best producers and allows our guests to discover extraordinary wines they wouldn’t easily find elsewhere.”

Led by Dumitru, Plateau employs three staff members who hold level two awards in the Wine & Spirit Education Trust program of sommeliers. The restaurant prides itself on its collection of older vintages and a dedicated category on the list from the Rocks District of Milton-Freewater, OR. This section showcases biodynamic wines from Cayuse Vineyards, where all the fruit is grown using biodynamic farming methods, highlighting Plateau’s commitment to sustainability and exceptional quality.
