Very few restaurants in South Africa are blessed with the talents of an internationally accredited Sommelier. Being a true Sommelier requires intensive training in food pairing, wine tastings skills and theoretical knowledge of wines of the world- and of course the ability to understand a customer’s taste and requirements.
Our sommelier Germain Lehodey comes with a wealth of knowledge and experience in the food and beverage department, having started his career as a sommelier at the world renowned restaurant Tour d’Argent in Paris. He was also a finalist in the Best Sommelier of the World competition. Germain lectured at the Wits Hotel School as well as the Cape Wine Acadamy. He worked in a number of top South African establishments, of which one was Lindton Hall with Richard Carstens.
Says Germain: “My philosophy is always to share my passion with people who care about what they eat and drink. It has been an unforgettable journey, and I am blessed that this profession has given me the opportunity to meet and serve people such as Salvatore Dali, Leonardo DiCaprio and Lisa Marie Presley. My association with Mosaic restaurant is the next step of my comprehensive journey to fulfil my life of great gastronomic experiences.”
