The Griffin Inn, Fletching, East Sussex
A favourite Sussex hideaway, noted for its food and its dedication to the grape,
as the very ‘active’ wine club will surely confirm following their recent trip to
Sicily. The global wine list champions old and new, offering a good range by the
glass and wines of the month, with Italy being a favourite – check out the Borolo
on the Connoisseur’s list.

Inn at Whitewell, Lancashire
Expect a superlative list of 200 wines (16 by the glass) at this grand inn lost in
the Trough of Bowland. There’s a bias towards smaller producers and ‘natural’
winemakers and the list, arranged by style rather than region, is a delight to
explore and every bottle can be bought from the shop at reception.

than a list of well-known names, with many served by the glass. Push the boat
out and delve into Victor’s 24 amazing Bordeaux St Emilion wines from great vintages.
