Berkmann Wine Cellars appoints director of fine wines & private clients
Berkmann Wine Cellars has appointed Guillem Kerambrun as director of fine wine & private clients.
Kerabrum was previously group head sommelier and wine buyer for Caprice Restaurants Group and Birley Clubs. Before moving to London he spent 13 years with chef Alain Ducasse as group beverage director after he trained in France at Dinard Food & Beverage School.
In his new role he will be responsible for souring and management of fine wines within the Berkmann portfolio while building Berkmann’s tailor-made offering for collectors and private customers.
Kerambrun said: “Since the beginning of my career in hospitality, I’ve always had the opportunity to work with some major players in the industry like Alain Ducasse and Richard Caring. Changing the direction of my career was not a simple decision but it is certainly easier as I stay in this exciting and vast world of wine and especially when joining such a respected company in the industry.
“Both Berkmann Wine Cellars and I share the same values and it's an honour to have the opportunity to create the culture and ethos of this new department, that sits within the Berkmann family’s vision.
“One of my goals is to keep the company one step ahead of the competition by delivering the best service to our clients. As always, I will analyse each wine by its notoriety, pleasure and price.”
