An Award Winning Wine List at Saxon Hotel, Villas & Spa

Well done to the Sommelier team at Saxon Hotel, Villas & Spa! It gives us great pleasure to announce that their Wine List has won two significant awards in the recently concluded World of Fine Wine’s World’s Best Wine List Awards for 2017. The Saxon Hotel emerged victorious with 3 stars overall (the highest honor) and the Best Spirits List Middle East and Africa, a first for the property as this was their first entry in the competition.

About the Wine Cellars at Saxon Hotels, Villa and Spa

Saxon believes that the wine list should be a constantly evolving work in progress, a philosophy that is mirrored by their food menus. Rather than making drastic changes, the team continually reviews and identifies what works well and what could work better. They are always exploring, tasting and comparing classic local vintages with the finest international wines.

Deep within the heart of the Saxon lie the Wine Cellars. Their Sommeliers’ extensive knowledge of wines enhances the enjoyment of guests’ culinary experiences. The Sommeliers spend a great deal of their time in the cellars, testing and tasting the wide range of proudly South African wines as well as classic international vintages to ensure that the perfect wine is paired with every meal.

The Saxon’s White and Red Wine Cellars are ideal for hosting small dinner parties for a private celebration. Reminiscent of authentic European and Cape wine maturation cellars, these unique venues capture the romantic attributes of the history of wine, adding to the ambience of these rustic spaces. Wine lovers will definitely appreciate the distinctive dark wood and wine aromas for an intimate and memorable dining experience.
