Functions wine list

The hotel regularly changes it’s wine list to keep up with new releases, out of stocks and take advantage of great buys and little treasures the hotels wine buyer may find. This means that occasionally the hotel may not be able to supply a particular wine of your choice due to a change over. In this instance the hotel apologises in advance.

Due to circumstances beyond the Hotel’s control (e.g. government excise tax, GST adjustments or wine vintage changes), alcoholic beverage prices are subject to change, without warning. Please be advised that the hotel does not accept any form of BYO arrangements for functions & events.

Please request the hotel’s latest wine list from your wedding coordinator.
