Our Wine List
The Killiecrankie Hotel is proud to have continued to win acclaim through awards for our wine list.
This is an exciting time at Killiecrankie. We are working with mainly Enotria Winecellars Ltd, as well as de Burgh Wines and Corney and Barrow Ltd to bring together a full and interesting wine list. With Enotria we have shaken up the list and introduced not only a new style but also perhaps a wider range of different wines from throughout the world. Tarquin de Burgh has formed his own company but as one with years of experience in the wine trade this promises some delicious offerings to tempt the most discerning palate. From Corney and Barrow we have presently just one wine – the utterly delicious Wiston Estate Sparkling Wine from the Sussex Downs.
A winter spent (very!) carefully tasting wines has allowed us to bring to you wines that we think really bring out the best in Mark’s style of cooking. You may notice a larger selection of Italian wines – we particularly like the San Vincenzo from Northern Italy and the Plumbago from Sicily which on the surface seem unusual but are standard bearers for their own area of production.
- Awards & Acknowledgements – We are delighted to be given a Notable Wine List award in 2009 from the AA. Also, rather flatteringly, we were included in a book entitled THE TOP 100 UK RESTAURANT WINE LISTS along with other worthy establishments such as Gordon Ramsay’s etc. We were 24th in the UK and 2nd in Scotland, interestingly though, we were 1st for ‘value’. You get more flavour for your pound here!!!
It’s not just about Italy though! An exciting Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand and Carmenere from Chile by the glass and our link up with the prestigious Champagne house of Perrier Jouet – we offer the Brut NV by the glass.
We have extended our dessert wine list too – do check with any of us if you would like a recommendation – and added a sparkling rosé from the Loire – simply delicious!
We may have confused you, just a little, to make you work on your choice. Our wines as listed by character, rather than by country, and we hope you will find something unusual to try as a result.
I do hope you enjoy working your way through the list and, as always, we welcome your feedback!
- As our wine list is fairly comprehensive we try to make the task of choosing a wine for your meal easier by making specific recommendations on the menu for wines to accompany each main dish. However, please do not hesitate to ask should you wish to discuss your selection further.
- We are also able to organise wine weekends that can be either corporate or family & friends orientated. One of our friendly wine merchants will be happy to come along, match wonderful wines to delicious food and talk about them in a light hearted yet informative way. We will be happy to tailor to your individual requirements.
