Marc Almert Selection
The Baur au Lac Vins wine stores offered Marc Almert the opportunity to create his own Marc Almert Wein-Selection — a portfolio of wines that captivated his palate and his emotions.
Marc’s own stories about these wines can be seen and heard on his Blog.
Sommelier & Speaker
Marc’s passion is contagious and his wine knowledge is seemingly inexhaustible. His charming and entertaining manner of conveying the essence of wine has made him a popular speaker at wine fairs, seminars and online tastings. The native of Cologne — and avowed Riesling fan — naturally enjoys moderating discussions on German wine. But he also enjoys talking about the wines of his chosen home, Switzerland; the many facets of Austrian wine; classics of the wine world; the terroir of Spain and France; the joys of far-away New Zealand; and his (no longer quite secret) love for South Africa. The mere mention of indigenous varieties also always puts a smile on his face.
