My Story | Alexis Mezoly - Wine Manager
Alexis Mezoly - Wine Manager

‘My first role at D&D was as a Commis Waiter back in 2007, so I guess I am proof that D&D London gives you the opportunity to build an amazing career if you are dedicated and ambitious enough! Before becoming Wine Manager at Old Bengal Warehouse I learned the trade as a Sommelier, first
at Le Pont de la Tour, Bluebird, Quaglino’s and finally Skylon.

In that time I have been fortunate enough to complete WSET qualifications, participate on the RiSE programme and win an Acorn Award in 2013.
I have also had some unique practical development, including the opportunity to create the wine list for a new opening and supporting the Wine Marketing Manager in launching D&D Wine’s online shop.
