The Judges

Michael Raebel

Head Sommelier, Rosewood Hotel London

More than 28 years’ experience within various parts of the Hospitality Sector, where I have been able to successfully support team members to enhance performance under high-pressure situations and encourage and maximize productivity.

My interpersonal skills and vast experience have allowed me to create and maintain a healthy work environment that fosters job satisfaction. My knowledge and passion for Food & Beverage, my natural ability to sell and my excellent Customer Service have allowed me to successfully help clients to meet their needs. In my position as Sommelier I had the great fortune to work with excellent chefs like Jun Tanaka (1 Michelin Star), Bjorn van der Horst (1 Michelin Star), Amandine Chaignot and Calum Franklin.
