About Vineyard at Stockcross
A wine-focused (even themed) Relais & Chateaux country house hotel in Berkshire, famous for its cellar of over 30,000 bottles. Owned by Sir Peter Micheal, who has over the years invested in a premium vineyard holding in northern California (Sonoma Coast, Knights Valley and Napa). The main hotel restaurant is classic fine dining, using the best of seasonal British ingredients.
About the Vineyard at Stockcross Wine List
A vast list of over 3,000 references and without doubt one of the largest restaurant collections in the country. They offer over 100 wines by the glass and carafe as well as blind tastings, cellar tours, wine dinners and masterclasses. With a list of this breadth and depth, it’s hard to pinpoint a special focus, but their stock of Californian wine is legendary and they have an enthusiastic section of Magnums and larger formats too.
A particularly nice touch is a list of 34 great bottles under £30, so along with the wines open by the glass (100) there really is something for everyone. The cellar and sommelier team is headed up by Romain Bourger who in 2019 became UK Sommelier of the Year.
Wine Tasting at Vineyard at Stockcross
Lots of wine tastings, dinners and events when open as normal.
Vineyard at Stockcross has a wine list that you rarely see when it comes to width and depth in Californian wines. It's highlighting sub-AVA’s and benchmark producers at a fair price, but also the up and coming producers. The team has done a superb job, it is so nice to see such a high-quality list, says jury member Pascaline Lepeltier about Vineyard at Stockcross winning Best California Wine List 2021
