Chief Sommelier - Permanent - South West Paris

We have an exciting new opportunity for an experienced Sommelier to join a luxury private residence in South West Paris.

  • Recommend food and wine pairings
  • Ensure wines are served at the right temperature and within the proper glassware
  • Manage the wine cellar and ensure it’s fully-stocked
  • Train front of house staff on available wines
  • Negotiate purchase prices with vendors
Ideal Candidate
  • Previous experience in working in a private setting
  • Professional yet discreet service when required
  • Passionate and knowledgable about wine
  • Experience in luxury chalets and/or villas
  • Bilingual: fluent in French and English
Package
Salary: Very competitive

Accommodation: Live-out

Hours: Monday-Friday, 8am - 5pm

Longer hours when the residence is full, so flexibility is required

Consultant: Matt Walton
