Meet Angelo Altobelli
I’m originally from Italy and I moved to England 12 years ago to study Medicine but falling in love with the world of wines.
In my years as a wine professional I worked as Assistant Head Sommelier at 1 Micheline Star, Pollen Street Social with Chef Jason Atherton. I then joined the pre-opening team at Hide restaurant as Assistant Head Sommelier with Chef Ollie Dabbous, where we were awarded 1 Micheline Star after 7 months of opening. After this achievement, I joined the Belmond Cadogan Hotel as Head Sommelier and Wine Buyer for Chef Adam Handling. Now I work with the talented Chef Tom Aikens at Muse restaurant where I am the Head Sommelier and Wine Buyer where we have just been awarded 1 Micheline Star.
Since 2019 I have had the privilege to be a Judge for the London Wine Competition. Check out some of my interviews, here.
In my career, not only have I worked alongside great Chefs, but was also lucky enough to have worked, assisted and learned from some icons in the industry which I also deem as mentors. Icons such as; Agnieszka Swiecka, Matthew Mawtus, Hans Larsson, Piotr Pietras MS; I would not be where I am now without their support.
