Martynas Pravilonis once again proves to be the number one sommelier in Lithuania

Kempinski Hotel Cathedral Square, the leading luxury hotel in Lithuania, congratulates its sommelier on a beautiful victory at the 12th Lithuanian Sommelier Taittinger Grand Prix 2017.

For the second year in a row, the sommelier of the Atelier Wine Boutique & Tasting Bar, situated at Kempinski Hotel Cathedral Square, proved to be the best of the best wine experts in Lithuania.

At the Lithuanian Sommelier Taittinger Grand Prix 2017 Martynas reached victory against 11 other competitors.

The complex finals required participants to show their best skills in wine decantation and wine pairing with food, as well as identifying in detail wines and spirits by enumerating their type, year and origin.

Martynas Pravilonis runs Atelier Wine Boutique & Tasting Bar, situated at Kempinski Hotel Cathedral Square, for which he has carefully selected an assortment of the best wines. This passionate wine expert deepens his knowledge daily by studying at the London-based Wine & Spirit Education Trust School on its diploma programme. Martynas is a teacher as well at the Lithuanian Sommelier school. When asked about plans for the near future, Martynas mentions the European Sommelier Championship in May in Austria where he will represent Lithuania.
