We are delighted to introduce our first Private Somm, Martyna Pawliczek, Head Sommelier at two Michelin-Starred La Dame de Pic in London’s iconic Ten Trinity Square hotel.
Martyna started her wine journey in Brighton’s Hotel du Vin, where she met and learnt from some of the titans of the wine world. She moved to London to step up in her career, and moved up the rungs of the sommelier ladder at Medlar Restaurant, Petrus, and Angler. Eight years on from catching the wine bug at Hotel du Vin, Martyna is now Head Sommelier at La Dame de Pic. She has completed her WSET Diploma, and is currently studying for the Advanced level in the Court of Master Sommeliers.
“The exchange of energy and emotions in hospitality is one of the most exciting and addictive parts,” she says. “It’s an ongoing journey of studying, discovering, exploring, and most importantly, making yourself and your environment better.”
“Private Somm offers such a wide range of possibilities to spread the word about my favourite producers, cuvées, and regions. It allows me to offer these wines beyond the traditional ‘borders’ of the restaurant. I had a great time choosing my wines and showing off my selection!”
