Fleming's Sets Wine Standards

Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar prides itself in offering the most extensive list of wines by the glass of any national chain restaurant company. Winner of the 2015 VIBE Vista Award for best chain restaurant wine program, the program's centerpiece is the Fleming’s 100, available at all 66 locations offering guests a selection of 100 wines by the glass, including 30 wines under $10. Each year, Maeve Pesquera, Fleming’s national director of wine, takes on a 12-month tasting process to keep the wine list fresh, collaborating with international wineries and including limited allocation boutique wineries. Pesquera also collaborates with wine managers at each Fleming’s location to add local selections.a
