Restaurant 301 first received the Wine Spectator Grand Award in 1998. This prestigious award has only been given to 77 restaurants worldwide and represents uncompromising, passionate devotion to the quality of their wine program. Typically, these restaurants offer 1,500+ selections of wine. In addition to this, they feature a wide variety of top producers and mature wines, a selection of large-format bottles, and excellent harmony with the menu. At the Carter House Inns and Restaurant 301, we pride ourselves on continuing to serve the finest wines and innovative menus.
Additional points of pride include being distinguished with a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence and holding the vote as the #1 hotel in Eureka, California by reviewers. Mark Carter’s wine labels, Envy Wines and Carter Cellars are known across the world for their high ratings, with 3 of his Carter Cellars wines being awarded a perfect 100 points by Robert Parker’s Wine Advocates in December 2015.
Over in Kentucky, the Carter name is new on the scene for their co-founding of Kentucky Owl Bourbon with the Dedman family. In 2014, the brand debuted and won in the drinks category for Garden & Gun’s Made in the South Awards Gala. This marked a great start for the brand, which recently sold out on its release day in Kentucky.
