Best Wine List
Readers, upstate: The Green Room (Hotel du Pont, 11 W. Market St., Wilmington, 594-3154)

Readers, downstate: Michele’s Steak and Seafood (1131 N. Dupont Hwy., Dover, 674-4600)

Critics, upstate: The 375 wines by the bottle at Domaine Hudson Wine Bar & Eatery hail from Burgundy, Bordeaux, Alsace and Langeudoc—and that’s just a sampling from France. The superior selection also includes representatives of Germany, Italy, Spain, Australia, New Zealand, South America and the United States. The bottles are stored in a climate-controlled cellar at 56 degrees and 70 percent humidity until the second they are served. The restaurant also features 45 wines by the glass. (1314 Washington St., Wilmington, 655-9463)

Critics, downstate: The two-page wine list at The Buttery offers one of the most diverse selections of wines, sparkling wines and champagnes. Dessert wines include representatives of New Zealand, California, Portugal, Australia and Spain. Try to catch one of the restaurant’s special wine dinners, such as Food and Wines of Argentina, Chile and Uruguay in April, which paired the perfect wines with appetizers such as applewood smoked bacon-wrapped sea scallops; entrées such as coconut-quinoa sea bass with cilantro; and desserts such as crepes with fresh berries. (102 Second St., Lewes, 645-7755)
