Exceptional Wines

Sommelier Eric Zwiebel has created a cellar at Summer Lodge that is a source of wonder for wine lovers. Filled with his personal selection of outstanding wines, both famous names and more obscure discoveries, the walls are lined with bottles to delight, excite and provide the perfect accompaniment to the exquisite cuisine served in our Restaurant. Working with Chef Steven Titman, together they have also created a magnificent Wine Dinner Programme of occasions not to be missed!

The list Eric has created for Summer Lodge is truly spectacular, and has received the prestigious ‘Best of Award of Excellence’ from Wine Spectator, every year since 2005. Eric and the Assistant Cellar Master are usually on hand in the Restaurant should you require recommendations.

We would be delighted to design a bespoke, West Country wine escape for you at Summer Lodge, including a private wine tasting with master sommelier Eric and a tour to local vineyards Furleigh Estate or Bride Valley - ideal for a romantic gift or honeymoon.
