Wine. it's what we do', our passion for fine wines is at the forefront of everything that we do at The Vineyard. A 5-red star hotel and spa, located between Newbury and Hungerford in Berkshire, just one hour away from London takes its name and inspiration from owner, Sir Peter Michael's world class winery in the mountainous landscape of Northern California. All 49 bedrooms ranging from the original and traditional hunting lodge style through to contemporary and spacious suites have been named after iconic wines from around the world. The top 6 suites are named after our patron's wines. This privately owned country house retreat showcases the passions of its owner Sir Peter Michael. The wine list has received multiple awards and features over 2,500 bins, yet is still thought of as a 'work in progress'. Around 600 wines listed are from California, including a library selection from the Peter Michael Winery in Sonoma Valley, rated by wine aficionados as being amongst the greatest wine estates of the world. The result of this intense research can be seen in our cellars where lay 23,000 bottles of wine.
