Wine at Gliffaes’ Restaurant in Crickhowell
Explore the Extensive Wine List at Our Restaurant in South Wales
Here at Gliffaes, when it comes to wine, we talk them up; not mark them up.
We take great pride in our wine list and stock over 80 wines and Champagnes right here in our Crickhowell restaurant. Working with our suppliers we taste everything before we buy – it’s a tough job, but somebody has to do it.
The wine list at Gliffaes is comprehensive all of the carefully selected wines are priced very reasonably, with our House Wine starting at £20 a bottle, as well as plenty of wines available by the glass. Changed every 12-18 months, the list reflects wines from almost all of the major wine regions around the globe. We also serve about 12 wines by the glass.
Over the years we have built up valuable and cherished relationships with lots of wine makers, shippers and merchants and we relish the opportunities that we get to invite these industry leaders to come and talk about their wines here at the hotel. As part of these fascinating talks, you will get an opportunity to taste the wines alongside their perfect food pairing; a different wine served with each course.
These events are always extremely popular, so if you would like to be the first to know about all of our upcoming wine dinners, you can sign up to our newsletter here.
Every year we buy wine to lay down in our cellar so we have a good supply of aged Claret in particular. If you are interested in seeing the Victorian Wine Cellar, please do ask and we will be happy to show you around. We may even be persuaded to part with a bottle not on the list.
We don’t claim to be expert sommeliers, but we do have a passion for good wine here at Gliffaes. You can learn a little more about extensive wine cellar here, courtesy of owner James.
