Wayne Baxendale

Head Sommelier and Wine Hospitalian

Wine has a sense of place and community, we just bring them all together. Having traveled the globe on cruise ships I’ve had the pleasure of tasting most of the world great wine regions in their birth place, I have the one thing in the world that can’t be taught and that is to travel it. Be inspired and taste as much as you can.

25 years of hospitality within the wine industry across the globe as Head Sommelier, General Manager and wine Educator from Michelin stars to your neighborhood wine bar.
