Hardly any Sommelier is as determined as Marc Almert. When the Cologne native was awarded the title of ‚ASI Best Sommelier of the World 2019‘, he was only the second German (succeeding Markus del Monego MW) and with his 27 years, the second youngest sommelier world champion in history. Next to his roles as chef sommelier at the award winning restaurant, Au Pavillon (2 Michelin stars) at the renowned Baur au Lac in Zurich, as well as at the connected wine merchant Baur au Lac Vins, where Marc curates the ‚Marc Almert Selection‘, he is also a globally sought after speaker and actively supports the next generation of sommeliers by working closely with national and international sommelier unions. He is smart, ambitious, eloquent and humorously charming. Since early 2020, we are proud to support Marc Almert on his journey.
