Ten Trinity Square Private Club has announced the appointment of Jan Konetzki as wine director.
In addition to overseeing the special wine programme (including a unique selection of Château Latour wines) for the Private Member’s Club, Konetzki will be creating exclusive wine lists for the restaurants at Four Seasons Hotel London at Ten Trinity Square.
He joins from Restaurant Gordon Ramsay in Chelsea.
Ten Trinity Square Private Club, which is set to open in quarter two of 2017, will feature a dedicated Château Latour Discovery Room, which represents the first time the wine estate has lent its name away from the Latour vineyard in Pauillac.
Members of the Club will enjoy access to some of the most sought-after vintages, complemented by cuisine from celebrated chef Anne-Sophie Pic.
Konetzki will also serve as a Château Latour and Artemis Domaines ambassador.
Originally from Lüneburg, northern Germany, Konetzki spent the early part of his career as a waiter at Hotel Louis C. Jacob in Hamburg before recognising his passion for wine and training as a Commis Sommelier.
In 2007, he moved to London where he joined Maze Grill as head sommelier and gained extensive experience in the preliminary stages of the restaurant’s opening.
Konetzki’s skill was soon recognised and he was appointed assistant head sommelier at three-Michelin star Restaurant Gordon Ramsay, progressing to head sommelier within one year of service.
Konetzki commented: “I am delighted to be joining the team at Ten Trinity Square Private Club.
“There are very few opportunities like this in the wine world and it is an honour to work alongside Château Latour and to be part of such an exciting project from the beginning.
“I look forward to sharing my passion and knowledge of fine wines and educating our members and guests.”
A unique partnership between Reignwood, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts and Château Latour, the Private Club will serve as a forum for members from around the globe to meet and share ideas; building powerful partnerships and cultural links.
