Home to Akelarre’ exclusive wine collection, which features some of the most prestigious vintages. Hundreds of bottles from most of the world’s major grape-growing regions are stored at a steady 16 degrees temperature and displayed in a subdued lighting that sets the mood. More than 700 references of all types and for all palates, from light, crisp whites to round, powerful reds, as well as celebratory sparkling wines and history-rich sherrys.
A space where Akelarre essence lives. As you approach a mural painted by local artist Tomás Hernández – an allegory of San Sebastian and the culinary arts -, a door opens into a new space of research, with a more relaxed atmosphere than the main kitchen. The room has been conceived to be simultaneously a place conducive to experimentation (R & D + r), and a testing ground for new and improved recipes before they make it into the menu.
