Antoine LehebelFamily name: Lehebel
Given name: Antoine
Jobs: Head-Sommelier, Restaurant Villa Lorraine, Brussels
I get so much joy from: making people happy to drink wines I recommended and making them discover new wines they would not have even considered trying.
My mentor is: Thomas Heimann, who gave me the wine bug while working in London.
If I were alone on an island (with a refrigerator!) I would have this with me: Great German Rieslings and Clairette de Die
I foresee these trends in the sommelier profession within the next few years: Our role will involve more and more education (of customers and staff), less service and highlighting the quality of wines in lesser-known regions.
