The Wine Vault
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. As well as master sommelier, Christopher Delalonde is our master storyteller, who weaves 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.
Christopher Delalonde MS Head of Wines at The Dorchester
A wine tasting should be as individual as the wine itself. We’ve tailored our offers to make sure you gain the most from your experience, be that solely wines, with dinner or added to a private event at the Chef’s Table.
All about wine
For an evening with a sole focus on wine, meet Christopher Delalonde as he guides you through a private wine tasting in The Wine Vault. Here you’ll be greeted with a glass of champagne, before enjoying a curated selection of fine wines and cheeses.
Minimum of five and maximum of 12 guests
The Wine Vault adjoins the Chef’s Table, a private dining room with a window into the kitchens. For our combined experience, you’ll enjoy a glass of champagne and private wine tasting with Christopher Delalonde, before taking your seats at the Chef’s Table for dinner.
The best of both
After a consultation ahead of your visit, you and your party will head to The Wine Vault and meet Christopher Delalonde, who will guide you through a selection of fine wines. Choose your favourite bottle to enjoy with dinner at The Grill at The Dorchester, where Tom Booton’s modern British cuisine makes the perfect finale.
