Glazebrook House Hotel in Devon has officially christened its wine and whisky tasting room.
Local and national wine experts were invited to celebrate its opening, following the hotel’s successful launch in September.
Owner Pieter Hamman and his daughter Gita, who oversees the marketing of the hotel, were joined by Susy Atkins, regular wine expert on BBC1’s ‘Saturday Kitchen’ and wine columnist for the Sunday Telegraph’s ‘Stella’ magazine; Duncan Schwab, head winemaker at Sharpham Vineyards; and Rebecca Mitchell, wine consultant, to toast this sophisticated and enchanting tasting room.
Decorated with antique wooden cigar moulds, glass domes filled with smoking pipes, and hand carved salvage oak cabinets, the tasting room displays 64 bottles of hand selected wines pulled together by Glazebrook’s own sommelier, Rebecca Mitchell.
The carefully chosen, varied selection of wines range from the best of Britain’s local wines, including Sharpham Estate, to international styles, including the limited edition Pol Roger Winston Churchill champagne.
Glazebrook House Hotel plans various compelling and quirky events throughout the year which showcase what it does best, delicious food in a magical environment with an element of surprise.
