Our Wine Philosophy – Savor The Best For Less
“You have the best wine list in the city at the best prices. On behalf of all wine lovers…THANK YOU!”
– ALEX SEBASTIAN, Proprietor, Wooden Angel Restaurant
.Wine enhances a meal and improves our health! For your enjoyment, we’ve accumulated an extensive inventory of over 800 Wine Selections from every corner of the world and proudly offer these premium selections at affordable prices! And, very soon, our wine will be available for sale for at home consumption as well!
While many of our competitors mark up their wines three times their cost, we have a minimal mark up philosophy that sets us apart and affords the true wine enthusiast the opportunity to “trade up” and enjoy the “better wines” at an exceptional value! Since 1995, our wine list has earned the coveted Wine Spectator “Award of Excellence.” And, we are the only restaurant in Western Pennsylvania to be recognized for “inexpensive prices”!
In 2015, The Carlton was awarded the “Best of” “Award of Excellence” from Wine Spectator after many years of winning it’s Award of Excellence. This is the first time we’ve received the elevated award recognizing our superior commitment to wine and we are the only Pittsburgh restaurant to receive this illustrious honor!
To achieve this distinctive honor, Wine Spectator states that, “These wine lists display excellent breadth across multiple winegrowing regions and/or significant vertical depth of top producers, along with superior presentation. Typically offering 350 or more selections, these restaurants are destinations for serious wine lovers, showing a deep commitment to wine, both in the cellar and through their service team.”
The Carlton, offers a “premium list” with selections that we have either tasted and approved or have achieved ratings of “85” and above by noted wine tasting publications. Wherever possible we attempt to provide published quotes about the wine from “Wine Spectator” or other noteworthy wine publications. If you are a true lover of the grape, you’ll love our wines and savor your selection with our extraordinary award winning cuisine!
