Master Sommelier, World best young sommelier 2019 Chaine de Rôtisseurs, Wine Director at Edition, London

I’m Wine Director at the London Edition, a 5* hotel within Marriott portfolio and I have recently started my own consultancy as a wine educator, wine judge and writer (I'm always happy to help with anything wine-related). As Wine Director I run the wine program - being responsible for buying, sales, training and service in a restaurant, three bars and event spaces. Since I moved to London in 2013 I have always challenged myself with sommelier competitions and wine qualifications. I achieved my WSET Diploma and became a WSET Educator. In 2019 I won the World Best Young Sommelier Competition organized by Chaine de Rotisseurs and this October I became Master Sommelier.
