La Maison 1888, French restaurant led by a three-starred Michelin chef Pierre Gagnaire with its home at InterContinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort, has been recognized by Wine Spectator’s 2019 Best of Award of Excellence for its outstanding wine cellar for the 2nd consecutive year.
In 2019, Wine Spectator is honoring 3,800 restaurants—hailing from all 50 states and more than 75 countries—for their outstanding dedication to wine. The awards are given across three categories: Award of Excellence, Best of Award of Excellence and Grand Award. La Maison 1888 is recognised in the category of Best of Award of Excellence, which names restaurants whose wine lists display excellent breadth across multiple winegrowing regions and/or significant vertical depth of top producers, along with superior presentation.
Artfully designed by renowned architect Bill Bensley, the wine cellar at La Maison 1888 is one of the largest temperature controlled walk-in wine cellars in Vietnam. More than 2000 bottles of wine are beautifully arranged on the wooden racks, including the most premium names, such as the “gems” of Premieur Grand Cru Classé wines (Latour, Mouton Rothschild, Lafite Rothschild, Haut Brion and Chateau Margaux). Diners at La Maison 1888 are also invited to visit this one of a kind wine cellar.
Nestled in the grounds of breathtaking Son Tra Peninsula of Central Vietnam and surrounded by the lavish greenery and soothing sounds of the Eastern Sea, La Maison 1888 has started its journey in 2012 and has immediately been featured in the Architectural Digest’s Top Ten list of most beautifully designed new restaurants. Today, La Maison 1888, under the leadership of three-starred Michelin chef, Pierre Gagnaire, is the number one gastronomic destination in Vietnam and the region.
