An extensive variety of wines are served at Le Cellier, the wine room at Château du Sureau’s excellent restaurant, Erna’s Elderberry House. Whether you’re in the mood for a dry Australian white, an antique Italian varietal or one of California’s own cabernets or pinot noirs, there’s a bottle of it in the estate’s cellar, which has won Wine Spectator's Best Award of Excellence. Highlights of the cellar include a unique collection of Austrian wines and hard-to-come-by California vintages that have attained cult status amongst area oenophiles.
The only problem with the wine selection at this Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel is that you may have some difficulty settling on what to order, with the menu stretching over 30 pages and including some 725 bottles, as well as a small but excellently curated spirits and beers section.
Keep in mind that Le Cellier is kept at a constant 56 degrees Fahrenheit year round to protect the wines from heat degradation, so be sure to grab your jacket before visiting: Even on scorching summer days, it’s literally the coolest place around.
