Guests of the Royal Mail Hotel are invited to join our sommeliers on a tour of the award-winning bottle wine cellar, holding an impressive 28,000 bottles. The cellar holds a range of local wines, international and the largest private collection of Bordeaux and Burgundy in the Southern Hemisphere.

The tour offers guests the opportunity to hear from those who work with the collection daily, ask questions and delve into their in depth knowledge of the local and international wine industry. A comparative tasting is also offered as part of the tour.

We use the Coravin system which allows us to serve iconic labels such as Penfolds Grange and Chateau d'Yquem by the glass.

Tours run Tuesday - Sunday at 3.30pm

The wines tasted during the tour will be available for purchase at special rates for hotel guests, providing a unique Royal Mail cellar door experience.
