Far Western Tavern wins wine excellence award


The Far Western Tavern in Old Orcutt earned a prestigious award of excellence from Wine Spectator magazine in its 2014 restaurant issue. The Far Western Tavern boasts a diverse and well-stocked wine cellar partially influenced by the owners, explained the restaurant’s sommelier Benjamin Chanler-Laurin in a statement.

“Some of the family members are vintners and wine collectors themselves,” he said. “They understood the significance of creating a standout wine list.”

The award was given based not only on the diversity of the Far Western’s wine cellar, but also on how well those wines paired with the restaurant’s food. The award and write-up will appear in Wine Spectator’s upcoming Aug. 31 restaurant issue. More information is available at
