Fine Wines

Our extensive cellar

At The Old Government House Hotel & Spa we are delighted to present an intriguing and carefully chosen wine list that offers an outstanding blend of quality and value. Ranging from the Grand Crus of Burgundy and Bordeaux and the most prestigious marques of Champagne to personally selected wines from less celebrated regions, the wines are helpfully listed by style, and present a fascinating cross-section of the almost infinite variety and range of the world of wine.

Many of the wines listed are available by the glass, including a selection from the celebrated South African estate, Bouchard Finlayson. The OGH is proud to be among the few hotels selected to showcase these wines, which are widely acknowledged as among the finest now being produced in the Cape. Together with the other old and new world wines selected for The OGH list, we are confident that even the most discerning wine lover will find something within its pages to satisfy, amuse, and delight.


"Using an abundance of fresh local produce, dishes should combine our love of producing a perfect harmony of flavours, with the influence of Beatrice Tollman, President and Founder of the Red Carnation Hotel Collection."
