Element 47's wine program has a reputation as rich as its cellar. Not only have we earned the Wine Spectator Grand Award since 1997, we’ve achieved the remarkable feat of graduating 10 of North America’s 172 Master Sommeliers, the most of any establishment in North America. Chris Dunaway runs our wine program today with sommeliers, Jesse Libby, Oscar Fernandez and Jacob Johnson. The Nell is proud to have about 50 sommeliers on staff, ranging from introductory to advanced. The team brings an infectious passion to the wine program at The Little Nell. The wine program hosts several phenomenal wine events each year, which are heavily attended by a wide spectrum of wine connoisseurs.

With 20,000+ wines in our cellar, our approach is based on a list that majors on classic producers and regions, with multiple vintages and wines from a roster of the world’s biggest names, from Roulot and Romanée-Conti in Burgundy, to Ridge and Screaming Eagle in California, via Chave Hermitage, Piedmont’s Gaja and a superb collection of mature classed-growth claret. We invited you to peruse the element 47 list of wines by the bottle and wines by the glass. Experience the hotel's award-winning wine list with a private tasting or dinner in the wine cellar.

The Little Nell Wine Club is designed for oenophiles interested in ordering wine for preferred pricing and the opportunity to have it stored onsite. Membership begins with a personal consultation with our Wine Director Chris Dunaway. The annual fee is $8,000, which is applied towards stocking your wine collection onsite and a 10% reduction off all wine purchases. Among the benefits, members will have access to order wines from rare allocated producers from classic regions, as well as unlisted wines from our attic.
