Wine at Lilayi
Ranging from light Sauvignon Blanc and fruity Chenin Blanc to the deep, full flavours of the Bordeaux style blends; guests will be thrilled by Lilayi's extensive wine selection stored in our in-house wine cellar. We believe that the stemware and service of wine is as important as the wines themselves which is why we select only the best for our guests' experience. We have had the priviledge of hosting wine makers and estate owners from around the world in our restaurant which has made food and wine pairing experiences a regular at Lilayi Lodge. If you are a lover of fine wines then allow us to create your perfect dining experience right in the heart of Africa. At Lilayi Lodge we are dedicated to ever enhansing our guests wine experience.
"There comes a moment on a journey when something sweet, something irresistible and charming as wine raised to thirsty lips, wells up in the traveller's being."
