About our Wines


I have worked hard to develop a diverse and interesting wine list, using the knowledge gained from continual tastings and talking with winemakers and suppliers. I created a representation of wines from around the world, offering different varieties and styles suitable for most tastes and palates. All these fine nectars have been selected for their quality and value for money.

There are some beautiful references from both small family producers to large winemaking Domaines; they all have their place. The wines are listed under region to ease your decision with more than 200 wines in price order.

You will notice that some references in this list are unbeatable value for money with vintages from the 1980s to the present day. These “reserve wines” are from the proprietor’s cellar, bought en primeur through various suppliers and private collections. This allows me to present an extensive assortment of fine bottles in immaculate condition.

The team and I always have guests in mind and we truly believe in the philosophy of drinking what you like, when you like! If you need some assistance regarding your selection I will be very pleased to offer my services and knowledge about every wine in this book and more.

If you have any suggestions for improvements to the selection, I would be more than happy to discuss these with you or please email me at sommelier@theswanatlavenham.co.uk.

Happy drinking

Head Sommelier
