All about wine
Hidden in the heart of the hotel kitchens, The Wine Vault is a modern, intimate space dedicated to the celebration of great wine. 1,000 bottles await your discovery, under the expert guidance of our sommelier.
Your guide for the evening
To truly appreciate a wine, you need to know its story. Our master sommeliers weave insightful tales into the journeys of our most exceptional wines.
Discover a new favourite
1,000 bottles. It’s an awe-inspiring sight. The wines in our vault come from far and wide, with varying vintages, producers and grapes. Today they line the walls surrounding our bespoke wine tasting table, where a carefully chosen light creates the optimal setting for studying colour and clarity.
An artisan’s touch
The bespoke handcrafted walnut wine tasting table draws inspiration from vineyards and wine barrels. A sustainably sourced walnut wood framework and floating Richlite top, made from recycled paper, adds a natural textured feel.
