Wine Tasting Masterclasses

Back to Offers

Budding wine buffs and lovers of all things grape will be delighted with the latest offering at Rockliffe Hall.

Beneath the stunning, 19th Century Old Hall, Rockliffe’s cellar stores a wide range of wines – usually kept under lock and key.

For the first time the cellar is being opened to guests and is the location for a range of unique wine tasting experiences.

Whether you’re visiting Rockliffe for an overnight stay, a corporate meeting, dinner or a round of golf, if wine is your thing, this is the perfect experience to enhance your time here with us.

Hosted by Rockliffe’s expert Sommelier, Daniel Jonberger, the intimate tasting masterclasses for between 2 and 8 people are set around a table in the centre of the brick-walled cellar which houses hundreds of bottles of wine.


Wine Tasting Challenge
This experience will see the Sommelier pitch two very different Vineyards against each other. You’ll taste wines made from the same grapes at each Vineyard, but the way in which they’ve been produced, their country of origin and the terroir will be different. Which Vineyard will you prefer?
Price: £75 per person for one hour


Tailor Made Tastings
Whether you have a favourite grape or region, or would like to explore new ones, we can create a bespoke wine tasting session to suit your needs.
All white, red, rosé or a combination of two or three, it’s up to you.
Price: From £45 per person for one hour


Beginners Wine Tasting
If you’re new to wine tasting, or even new to wine, this sampling session is a perfect introduction into the world of the grape. 
Sample seven delicious wines from different parts of the world and different palates.
Price: £55 per person
