An exquisite range of boutique beers and Central Otago wines
FINE WINE AND BEER are part of the Lake Roxburgh Lodge experience. A favourite place to enjoy a drink is on the sundeck in front of the restaurant, or feel free to find a relaxing spot in the shade somewhere in the Lodge’s quiet gardens.
Your host Phil Winterbottom takes pride in the Lodge’s line up of beers. A Derbyshire lad, he knows a good beer – “We have the big New Zealand beers like Speights and Steinlager, but it’s worth chancing your arm with a boutique ale from our very special collection. Chances are you haven’t even heard of some of the breweries we support. But by heck, they’re good!”
The wine list is equally compelling, led by locally produced Central Otago pinot noirs and chardonnays. Sauvignon blancs, pinot gris and bubbles carefully selected from New Zealand and Australia’s best wineries complete the list.
