Who won the ‘Bellavita Best UK Sommelier 2016’?
The competition took place during the Bellavita Expo in London at the Business Design Centre, in front of a tough panel of judges. The style and elegance of such an artistic profession charmed the audience. All finalists showed their class in wine service and knowledge before the judges and their ‘customers’ on the stage.
The competition was won by Matteo Montone of Locanda Locatelli, who was presented with his award by sponsors Villa Sandi at the Wine Academy, and also won a trip to Venice and tour of their picturesque winery, courtesy of Villa Sandi.
In 2015, the award was won by Vincenzo Arnese from Dinner by Heston Blumenthal, who set a real benchmark for other contestants.
