Andreas Rosendal

Andreas Rosendal is the Director of Wine at luxury boutique hotel Flemings Mayfair, responsible for the wine & beverage offering at the hotel’s restaurant Ormer Mayfair and glamorous 1930’s bar, Manetta’s.

Andreas started his career in Sweden as Sommelier at Sigtuna Stads Hotell, part of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World. In 2009 he moved to Oslo where he was appointed Restaurant Manager and Head Sommelier at the Michelin-starred Haga Restaurant which won an ‘Award of Excellence’ for its 1,200 bins by Wine Spectator.

In 2011 Andreas ventured to the UK to take on the role of Assistant Head Sommelier at the Michelin-starred Greenhouse restaurant in London, which has the UK’s largest wine list with 3,600 bins. A year and a half later, he joined the two-star Restaurant Sat Bains as Assistant Head Sommelier, during which time he also gained an Advanced Sommelier Diploma from The Court of Master Sommeliers.

May 2014 saw the five-star London hotel The Westbury and Michlin starred chef Eric Chavot welcome Andreas to the team as Head Sommelier, where the wine list was awarded “2 Stars” by The World of Fine Wine Magazine.

Since Ormer Mayfair opened in 2016 following a £16million refurbishment, Andreas has taken the restaurant and bar from strength to strength, working closely with brands such as Nyetimber, Ridgeview & Gusbourne to champion English sparkling wine.
