Royal Mail Club – the club for wine enthusiasts

Royal Mail Hotel and fine wine are as synonymous as a great shiraz and a perfect cut of beef. We are known for our famed wine collection and our eagerness to share this collection with those that appreciate it.

That is why we have launched Royal Mail Club, for its second year running. We know wine clubs come a dime a dozen, but this is not one of them.

It’s a club where passion for wine transcends the common connoisseur. It’s where collections are coveted, the best back vintages of Old-World varietals are celebrated and the passion for local producers is shared.

Join in the exploration of the 25,000-bottle cellar. It includes wines from our neighbours and a comprehensive international wine list. But it doesn’t stop there. The Royal Mail Hotel cellar also includes the largest private collection of Bordeaux and Burgundy in the Southern Hemisphere.

Members will be able to tap into the knowledge of our Royal Mail Hotel sommeliers – Matthew and Peter.

Matthew Lance is our dedicated restaurant manager, who has an encyclopedic knowledge of the best wines from across the world. Those that have experienced a night in Wickens, will have had Matthew transport them through their wine match or given a theatrical recommendation.

Peter Dillon is the Royal Mail Hotel general manager. That’s right, Royal Mail Hotel is so dedicated to wine, our own general manager is a trained sommelier. His passion for wine has taken him all over the world, recommending wines to the likes of Princess Diana, Tom Cruise, Nicole Kidman and Michael Hutchence.

Matthew and Peter provide regular suggestions and recommendations to Royal Mail Club members, straight from the award-winning Royal Mail Hotel cellar.

Members are invited to live and breathe the Royal Mail Hotel wine story, with their included two-night stay. Immerse yourself in a wine cellar tour, meet the team and experience their passion first hand. Guests are suggested to indulge in a Wickens experience, where outstanding wines are offered by the glass.

The Royal Mail Club journey can also be experienced at home, with member pricing offered on unique and valued wines. From our cellar, to yours.

Memberships are valued at $500 per household. If you sign up before August 31st 2020, your annual membership will have an extra three months added, valid until December 2021. Sign up here!


Open Wednesday to Sunday – our phone lines are often busy, if your enquiry is not urgent please email us at relax@royalmail.com.au
