A luxury boutique hotel for lovers of wine, renowned for wine tastings, wine dinners and even wine games. Gerard Basset OBE is the 'World's Best Sommelier 2010' and here is the first episode of TerraVina TV:
'Meet the Sommelier'
'Wine is at the core of Hotel TerraVina; it is our passion and it’s this passion that inspires us to unearth and share new wines with guests.'
So if you’re a wine lover already or you’re interested in learning more, we’re always delighted to share our knowledge and enthusiasm. You can view our open cellar with its eclectic collection or enjoy a tour of our vaulted basement cellars for an unusual opportunity to encounter new labels from small and interesting producers that combine high quality with excellent value for money.
Gerard Basset OBE, one of the world’s top sommeliers, is the inspiration behind the wine culture of Hotel TerraVina. Gerard is renowned for his wine events at the hotel including informal and tutored wine tastings and wine dinners. Having co-founded the Hotel du Vin Group in 1994, Gerard created and co-ran the Ecole du Vin. He has a considerable experience in running tutored wine tastings and wine classes.
Exclusive wine gift boxes, signed by Gerard, with wines selected by Tanguy Martin and the TerraVina sommelier team, are available from the hotel.
Hotel TerraVina is also a favourite with those fancying a cocktail in the New Forest. We have a great cocktail list so do pop in and enjoy one or two!
