Wine at Gliffaes’ Restaurant in Crickhowell
Enjoy hand-selected wine at the most knowledgeable of all Brecon restaurants
Explore The Extensive Wine List
When it comes to wine, many Brecon restaurants don’t take the time required to consider a guest’s tastes and preferred flavour profile. Here at Gliffaes we do the opposite 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 cellar. 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, our wine list is constantly changing and reflects wines from almost all of the major wine regions around the globe.
Over the years we have built up valuable and cherished relationships with lots of winemakers, shippers and merchants. We relish the opportunities this affords us; 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 and showcase our unique standing amongst other Brecon restaurants. 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.
Each 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.
