One of my favourite places in Nassau, Bahamas, was Graycliff. The franchise which is located next to Government House boasts a 5 star hotel, a restaurant, a chocolatier, a cigar factory and a wine bar and shop. Today's post is dedicated to the wine tasting experience at Graycliff.
Bahama Barrels is the first winery in the Bahamas, housed in a charming 1937 church built by the Sisters of Charity. Although the Bahamas is not a wine producer, Bahama Barrels bottles wines blended from grapes from several countries, including Italy. At Bahama Barrels, guests can taste wines from across the globe, learn the entire grape-growing season and winemaking process.
Graycliff’s Wine Cellar is world-renowned and the wine list has won the prestigious Wine Spectator Grand Award since 1988, and the World of Fine Wines 3-stars since 2015. The Wine Cellar has an inventory of over 250,000 bottles from over 400 vintners in 15 countries. The Wine Cellar is a connoisseur’s dream, the inventory ranges from today’s most popular vintages to some of the rarest including an 1865 Château Lafite and the oldest and one of the most expensive bottles in the world, a 1727 Rudesheimer Apostelwein from Bremen Ratskeller in the “Rheinghau” Region.
So guys if you are in Nassau and want somewhere great to hang out, do check out Bahama Barrels and ask for Walden.
