Head Sommelier – Le Pont de la Tour
We are delighted to introduce Le Pont de la Tour’s new Head Sommelier – Michele Orbolato.
Michele studied as a Sommelier at the prestigious Italian Sommelier School (AIS), WSET, and Court Of Master Sommelier, and has since gained 10 years of experience in the wine industry, most recently at Petersham Nurseries in Covent Garden, before joining Le Pont de la Tour in January 2022.
Michele’s passion for wine and the wine industry is clear, ‘The best part of my job is working with beautiful wines from all over the world, having the possibility to discover new wines and producers every day, and interacting with the guests, especially the ones that like to be driven by your recommendations. However, the best part of my job is the passion I have for this wonderful world and I’m very grateful to have the opportunity to work with wine every day.’
