The Wine Guru - Mr Manuel Rodrigues

Mr Manuel Rodrigues has accumulated a wealth of knowledge in wine over the past 15 years. He started at 1- Michelin Star Hostellerie des Clos, in Chablis, Burgundy when he was just 16 years old, and moved  on to 2-Michelin Star Le Grand Hotel du Lion D’or in Loire Valley. Following this in 2006, Manuel became the sommelier at the world’s most luxurious hotel, the Burj Al Arab in Dubai. He later served as an Assistant Head Sommelier at Ossiano, a renowned restaurant opened by 3-Michelin Star Spanish Chef Santi Santamaria at Dubai’s resort development, Atlantis the Palm.

His most recent appointment, prior opening the restaurant Provence Singapore, was as Grand Sommelier at the St. Regis Hotel in Singapore since March 2010 where he was oversaw all the beverages for the hotel. 

Originally from Portugal, Manuel and his family moved to the famous wine-making region of Chablis in Burgundy in the east of France when he was just a boy. Manuel’s love for wines began at the tender age of 12, when he worked alongside his father in the vineyards. There, he helped to toil the land, prune and harvest grapes, these being experiences that fostered in him a deep respect for the hard work behind the enjoyment of a fine bottle of wine. 

Manuel graduated from Hospitality School Bourges in Loire Valley, France, attained the world wide WSET Wine Certificate and has won numerous Young Apprentice Sommelier awards.  Manuel’s passion for wines has fuelled his career as a sommelier, and has seen him travelling and working around the globe, keenly sharing his knowledge with wine-lovers all over the world.
