Glitretind Restaurant’s sommelier is Cara Schwindt. The wine expert is in the dining room of the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star restaurant four or five nights out of the week, offering pairings to complement the restaurant’s hearty regional fare. On a recent visit, Schwindt helped us narrow down our selections to three red wines (Spanish, Chilean and California varieties) to pair with a buffalo flank steak. Schwindt is noticeably unpretentious in her wine service, offering affordable picks in addition to pricey bottles.
Schwindt oversees purchasing for the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star Stein Eriksen Lodge’s 10,000-bottle wine cellar — that’s in addition to a wine room in Glitretind that holds 2,370 bottles. The luxury Park City restaurant offers more than 750 different wines, ranging from local to international varietals. Schwindt hosts wine seminars in the hotel’s temperature- and humidity-controlled wine cellar. Schwindt also helped design Glitretind’s wine room, which features a split-level cooling system to keep both the red and white wines at the perfect serving temperature.
