Mathias Camilleri MS is currently working in the wine department of the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore. Originally from France, Mathias began his career in wine in 2011 by passing a wine degree at Lycée Albert de Mun in Paris.

Camilleri moved to the UK straight after completing his degree and spent almost six years there. Beginning as a commis sommelier at the Vineyard at Stockcross in Newbury, he then moved to London to join the team at Medlar Restaurant where he spent three years as a sommelier. He then became Head Sommelier at one Michelin starred restaurant The Five Fields, also in London, between 2016 and 2018. After six years in the UK, Mathias decided to move to Singapore and take up a position as Head Sommelier at CÉ LA VI Singapore for more than a year.

In 2015 Mathias was awarded UK Young Sommelier and International Young Sommelier by the Chaîne des Rôtisseurs. He then won the UK Sommelier of the Year competition and achieved the prestigious Master Sommelier title, both in 2017.
