For $250, you, too, can have an Award of Excellence

... or that's what this research seems to indicate. Link found thanks to Patricia's FARK linkage.

What does it take to get a Wine Spectator Award of Excellence?

Their reviews might still be okay, but given this, the awards on restaurant walls seem to be more of a revenue stream for the magazine than an actual indicator of a quality wine list. It's too bad, because I have a friend who is a sommelier, and the wine list he created is, in my opinion, worthy of recognition. He really puts a lot into what he does.
