About Marc Almert

Marc’s career started in 2008 at the Excelsior Hotel Ernst in Cologne. He dreamed of becoming a hotel director. Yet a wise supervisor nudged Marc toward his first professional encounter with high-end wines—and soon thereafter his original career plans were put aside in favor of studies as a sommelier. Stations at Restaurant Ente at the Nassauer Hof and Fairmont Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten in Hamburg followed, before Marc accepted a post as sommelier at the renowned Baur au Lac in Zurich in January 2017.

During Marc's years as a wandering apprentice, his insatiable curiosity drove him to invest as much spare time and energy as possible in sommelier training and competitions. In 2019, at just 27 years of age, this led to his crowning as “ASI Best Sommelier of the World.” Marc Almert has since taken on the position of Chef Sommelier at Baur au Lac and in early 2022 was invited to join the Baur au Lac Vins management team.
