Visconti's Italian Restaurants in Wenatchee and Leavenworth have been named to Wine Spectator magazine's list of the world's top wine serving restaurants.

Sun Mountain Lodge, near Winthrop, was also named to the prestigious list of fine restaurants that feature award-winning wine lists.

Some 3,748 restaurants from all 50 U.S. states and more than 80 countries are on the list. Only 32 Washington restaurants are on the list, which is featured in the August issue of Wine Spectator. Visconti's and Sun Mountain Lodge are the only North Central Washington restaurants on the list. Valley Cafe in Ellensburg is also listed.

Visconti's, owned by Candy Mecham and Dan Carr, and Sun Mountain Lodge are perennial winners of numerous Washington and Northwest wine menu awards. Visconti's in Wenatchee was picked as the state's best wine restaurant by the Washington State Wine Commission in 2013.
