At The Old Government House Hotel & Spa we are delighted to present an intriguing and carefully chosen wine list that offers an outstanding blend of quality and value - from the Grand Crus of Burgundy and Bordeaux, and the most prestigious marques of Champagne, to personally selected wines from less celebrated regions.
Many of the wines listed are available by the glass, including a selection from our sister wine estate, Bouchard Finlayson in South Africa. The wines are helpfully listed by style, and present a fascinating cross-section of the almost infinite variety and range of the world of wine.
