Through my own experience as a two Michelin star sommelier at restaurant De Lindehof** in Nuenen and being awarded as Sommelier of the Year 2022 by Proefschrift Amsterdam, I give advice on this website in wine blogs, articles, wine ratings and much more!
My name is Anthony De Beir, registered vinologist, sommelier, wine consultant and wine writer.
My interest in wine started when I was studying Hospitality Managment in Melbourne, Australia. I was able to conduct a lot of research for both Australian and New Zealand wines and organised different wine trainings for the F&B staff of Pullman Melbourne, where I was working as a Team leader at the time.
When I moved to The Netherlands, I decided to study vinology and I started working as the first sommelier of hotel Van der Valk Breda.
After that I worked as a head sommelier with the two Michelin star restaurant De Lindehof.
In 2022 I was awarded Sommelier of the Year by Proefschrift Amsterdam.
From mid 2022 I decided to dedicate myself fulltime to my own company Gettinghotforwine and working as a wine consultant.
