Master Sommelier

Cameron Douglas is New Zealand’s first and only Master Sommelier with the Court of Master Sommeliers worldwide and South Pacific Director for the Global Guild of Sommeliers. When Rodd & Gunn approached Mr Douglas to craft and curate the wine list for The Lodge Bar there was little doubt that the result would be a special list, showcasing New Zealand’s finest wines.

The list features outstanding local producers, select vintages and hard to find varietals and is complemented by a select range of fine Champagnes.

In true Rodd & Gunn fashion the customer is always at the fore with over 30 wines available by the glass.
