DWWA 2013 Burgundy Judging Panel
David Vareille was raised in Chablis, and his career began at the age of 16, when he worked in the Michelin starred La Salamandre, spending much of his time in the cellars establishing a love for fine wine. A career working with some of the best Chefs in Burgundy, Bordeaux and Spain followed. David moved to the UK in 2004 as Head Sommelier at L’Enclume in the Lake District and has since worked at the Hotel du Vin group and the Bleeding Heart before, in 2010, joining Bar Boulud as Head Sommelier for the opening of Chef Daniel Boulud’s first UK restaurant. With a focus on Burgundy and the Rhône Valley, as well as new world selections, this was a natural move for David, taking him back to his roots. David believes Bar Boulud is a combination of his three great passions: fantastic food, fantastic wines and the best guests you can dream of.
