As our major hotel renovations come to completion, we are proud to open and welcome you to our Wine Room. Our wine curator and sommelier Liinaa (see below), will happily guide you through our huge collection of interesting, rare, and classic wines. These include labels from both local growers and well-known Old World names such as Petrus, Mouton Rothschild, Lafite and a wide collection of Burgundys.
The fun is in the browsing, and all bottles have prices clearly marked in white chalk pen. You’ll find an astonishing nest of auction-level vintages at affordable prices, premium large-format bottles, and an exclusive collection of vintage Seppletsfield fortifieds. If local is your fancy, we have a wonderful selection of small, organic and biodynamic producers such as Lucy Margaux, Taras Ochota, Sam Scott, and Yarra Yering; plus the hotel owners’ own experimental lot of older Australian whites.
Liinaa Berry has joined us from the Constance Belle Mare Resort hotel group in Mauritius. Having previously spent 8 years in the bar and café scene in Melbourne, Liinaa returned to her home country as Head Sommelier in the fine dining restaurants of high-end resorts in both Mauritius and Seychelles. Immediately before arriving in the Adelaide hills, she travelled along the wine routes of Italy and Germany.
Liinaa has been mentored by World Best Sommelier 1989 and 2007 as well as the Best French Sommelier 2014.
This year, she participated in the Bernard l’Oiseau Best Sommelier.
Liinaa is here curating our wine room with some unique and interesting Old World collections, together with many auction-level and rare wines from Australia. She will tailor your selection to suit any budget or preference. With her natural flair for wine, Liinaa is passionate about both the people who make it, and, most importantly, the people who drink it! Please feel free to chat, challenge, gossip with Liinaa!!
