The Wine Cellar
at The Retreat
Descend into the earth
Exquisite and enchanting, The Retreat’s wine cellar is a subterranean sanctuary three meters deep in the earth. A cavern of multicolored, frozen-in-time lava that erupted in the year 1226, this stunning chamber evokes images of ancient cave paintings. But the walls—lined with wines from all over the world—were painted by the volcanic hand of nature.
Available everyday from 12:00 to 16:00 for private tastings, the wine cellar opens the door to a festive, intimate occasion in a sublime and unforgettable location. Additionally, we offer an Open wine tasting experience everyday at 17:00. Please see the various options below.
Engage your senses
Anchored by Old World wines from France’s celebrated wine growing regions—with a focus on Bordeaux and Burgundy—as well as selections from the classic vineyards of Italy, Spain, and Germany, the timeless heritage embodied by our wine list is complemented by wines from some of the preeminent New World wine producers of the Americas and Australia.
Wine tasting is available for individuals and small groups. Contact us to book your experience.
