Beatrice Bessi

Head Sommelier at Chiltern Firehouse

Italian, moved to London 5 years ago after being Restaurant Manager for Alajmo (one of the 50 best chefs in the world). I wanted to focus more on wine and pursue the CMS. I moved here for work at 67 Pall Mall, as I did for 4 years, started as Junior Sommelier to Assistant Head Sommelier of Terry Kandylis, and I managed to pass the Advanced exam CMS. At the moment I'm working as Head Sommelier at Chiltern Firehouse, working towards my MS exam, and studying for the WSET Diploma.  For more information, read Beatrice Bessi's interview with London Drinks Guide.
