SALT LAKE CITY (August 21, 2013) Log Haven, the acclaimed fine-dining destination, has won its tenth straight Award of Excellence from Wine Spectator, an award reserved for restaurants that “offer an interesting and diverse selection of 100 or more wines that are well-presented and thematically match the restaurant cuisine.” With wines thoughtfully selected from all over the world to complement their globally inspired and regionally sourced new American cuisine, Log Haven is one of only 15 Utah restaurants to win this prestigious award. “It’s a great honor to be recognized for our decade of dedication to presenting a well-rounded selection of wines that complement our cuisine. We’re excited to continue this legacy into the future by offering even more outstanding wines” said Ian Campbell, Log Haven’s General Manager/Wine Director.
Log Haven is not about to rest on its laurels, or in this case, its grape leaves. Campbell is constantly seeking new ways to enhance the restaurant's acclaimed wine program, most recently when Log Haven hosted three of Oregon’s pioneering wineries this past July at the "Wild About Willamette" food and wine event. This sold-out tasting party was met with rave reviews, so local oenophiles should stay tuned for future features, collaborations and events Log Haven features specialty wine and cocktails each month to further broaden their expansive offerings of Old and New World wines. This month's featured wine is Copain Winery’s 2011 Tous Ensemble Chardonnay, a medium bodied unoaked New World chardonnay with citrus aromas and flavors of pear and lemon that Campbell has chosen to complement Chef Dave Jones' Lemon Poppy Seed Risotto and Panko Dusted Dungeness Crab Cakes.
