• Our Wine Selection includes over 300 wines

Award Winning Wine List

Wine is a fascinating subject and one we take very seriously at Holbeck Ghyll. Our charming Chief Sommelier, Stefan Lydka, spends a considerable amount of time sourcing individual suppliers and the finest growers - often small, private vineyards - to ensure that there is a wine to suit every guest’s palate.

We’ve travelled extensively in our quest to put together an interesting, exciting and good value list and it now includes nearly 300 fine wines from around the world, including many traditional favourites, a wide selection of excellent Clarets and Burgundies, and some more unusual examples from emerging wine regions such as Georgia, USA and Slovenia.

The stunning New World wines that have helped win us extra applaud have been christened Stefan’s ‘fantastic finds’ and the knowledgeable team at Holbeck Ghyll are always delighted to advise on matching wines to dishes from our award-winning menus.

Frequently acknowledged for the extensive lists of both half bottles and dessert wines, Holbeck Ghyll is proud to have been the only restaurant in the North West to have been shortlisted for Imbibe’s Louis Roederer Wine List of the Year award 2011. We were also awarded the coveted Good Food Guide Wine List of the Year award in 2009 as well as being highlighted for having a Notable Wine List in the 2009 AA Guide.

Stefan and the team were also proud to be awarded the prestigious Condé Nast Johansens Taittinger Wine List of the Year in 2007.

Bring Your Own Wine!

We are offering wine connoisseurs who can't cook the chance to dip into their own collection and bring their own bottles to enjoy over lunch.  This means that special bottle of an exceptional vintage can now be enjoyed with the sort of fabulous food it deserves. 

Bring along your bottle of wine and our team will advise you on what to choose from the menu to complement your wine.  We can even arrange to have the bottle sent in advance so it can rest at the correct temperature and, if necessary, be opened ahead of your meal to ensure it is drunk in optimum condition. 

A corkage charge of £30 per bottle applies and is limited to tables of six or less and is only available at lunch-time.
