unstar this property answer text <p>The Senior Deputy Speaker has asked me, as Chairman of the Services Committee, to respond on his behalf.</p><p>The price of the English still wine offered in the Peers’ Dining Room and available on request in the Barry Room is £54.00 a bottle. The price of the equivalent standard House of Lords own label wine is £18.00 a bottle. The variance in price arises because the English wine (a pinot noir) has a higher wholesale price, while the House pinot noir is purchased in larger volumes using a long-term contract. The house wine is also sold by the glass at £6.35 for 250ml and £4.80 for 175ml.</p><p>The price of the English sparkling wine offered in the Peers’ Dining Room and available on request in the Barry Room is £55.00 a bottle. The price of the equivalent House of Lords own label champagne is £47.50 a bottle. Neither is sold by the glass in the dining rooms.</p> more like this
