Extended fine wine list
We always offer excellent quality and value wines for everyday drinking from as little as £20 a bottle or a few pounds a glass.
We also have some of the finest wines in the world and we find that many of our regular customers visit The Old Vicarage as much for the extensive fine wine list as for the food so, to accommodate those guests wishing to explore the hundreds of rare wines in our cellar, we have now released some of our reserve stocks of fine wines, offering some of the best examples of classics from mature vintages over the last 50 years.
Highlights include a vertical of Vega Sicilia Unico back to 1965; a collection of Brunello di Montalcino, Franco Biondi-Santi, back to 1975, every major vintage of Ch. Lafite and Ch. Latour from the 60s and 70s, plenty of depth in reliable estates like Gruaud Larose and Leoville Barton, along with Red Burgundy Grands Crus by the late René Engel, mature Meursault from Coche-Dury, Premier and Grands Crus from Leflaive and Comte Lafon.
For those with tastes outside the conservative classics we have old Rhone from Guigal, some intriguing oddities from traditional winemakers like Domaine de Trévallon and Domaine Tempier, as well as mature vintages of excellent New World wines such as Ridge Monte Bello and Opus One.
All of this is offered with great cooking and service to match!
