Round Hill Hotel & Villas has been given the nod for its wine programme by Wine Spectator magazine — indeed the property has been deemed worthy of the well-respected magazine's 2014 Award Of Excellence.

"The recognition," according to the property's managing director Josef Forstmayr, "honours the extensive work that our Food & Beverage department has accomplished to achieve a robust wine programme that highlights diversity in brand, region and varietal, while selecting wines that pair seamlessly with our fresh Caribbean cuisine and align with our mission to use organic and sustainable ingredients."

Hillary Stewart, director of food and beverage at Round Hill, describes her property's wine selection as "somewhat eclectic, [featuring] not just a variation of varietals, but also a wide range of brands and regions specifically in the organic category. We have Bonterra Pinot Noir (California) and Casa Lapostelle Cabernet Sauvignon (Cuvée Alexandre House in Chile), as well as numerous wines from sustainable vineyards around the world including South Africa, Argentina and Sicily."
