Big Easy Durban receives Diamond Status

In only its second year of operation, Big Easy Durban, has been recognized by the Diners Club Winelist Awards and received its highest accolade, Diamond status, at the 2017 Diners Club Winelist Awards ceremony held on Monday, 31st July at the Beverly Hills Hotel in Umhlanga.

“We are extremely proud to have our carefully composed wine list recognized by respected members of the industry,” says Scott Morgan, Restaurant Manager. “A great deal of thought goes into our wine selection, to ensure that it complements our menu.”

The Diners Club Winelist Award winners fall into different categories: Diamond Status is the highest accolade and most coveted status with a total score of 91 percent or higher, followed by Platinum, Gold and Silver.

“Receiving Diamond Status, the highest accolade, at the Winelist Awards is a tremendous accomplishment for Big Easy Durban. Judging is done by experts in the hospitality and wine industry, so to achieve this award is high praise indeed,” says Cameron Townend, Food and Beverage Manager at Hilton Durban.

Judging criteria in the Diners Club Winelist Award includes content, balance, suitability and presentation. The judging panel was drawn from experts in the restaurant and wine field, reviewers, the media, chefs and members of the South African Sommeliers Association.

Buon appetito!

With nothing but a suitcase full of dreams and her faithful friend ‘the cello’, Cecilia Di Cecco left Italy to work as a musician with the KZNPO in Durban.
