Fine Wines at Rye Lodge
Fine wines are certainly one of life's real pleasures - and have been since the days of Socrates. Whilst Kerry de Courcy has been in the hotel industry for over 50 years, for more than 30 of those years he was involved in wine shipping, especially Champagne. The wine cellar at Rye Lodge reflects his enthusiasm and experience.
Our cellar is stocked with wines of many different styles, carefully selected for excellence, quality and value for money - not only from the classic areas of France and the rest of Europe but also from the New World where, today, many top quality wines are being produced.
Our wine list includes tasting notes,
after each wine that may be helpful if you are not already familiar with that particular wine - also it may encourage you to experiment and try some of the stunning new wines from around the world - not to mention our local wines from Kent and East Sussex!
