Jan

Jan is the founder and owner of Konetzki. Being one of the world’s leading sommeliers and F&B experts, he achieved his pole position through a unique combination of sensory talent and exceptional empathy. Though classical in style and manners, he always conducts a playful approach to his tasks. Jan knows how to blend zeitgeist with tradition, thus frequently breaking the conventions of his trade. At Konetzki we are living his spirit: a relaxed unwillingness to compromise in quality and highest appreciation of detail, all balanced by an unmitigated awareness of context and purpose.

Jan’s outstanding expertise evolved during a stunning career of fifteen years in high class gastronomy and hospitality, starting with an apprenticeship and first sommelier practice at Hamburg’s Louis C. Jacob hotel and restaurant, soon to be followed by rapid professional progress in London. Within three years he became head sommelier at Restaurant Gordon Ramsay. Since then Jan has been working with some of the most distinguished chefs in the industry, such as Gordon Ramsay, Anne-Sophie Pic and Clare Smyth. He is frequently referred to as one of the most creative and influential professionals in the trade and has been awarded the title of UK Sommelier of the Year four times. Beyond that, his work is receiving even wider recognition among experts and media, rating some of his wine lists as Best of Europe and Best of World. Jan himself is a member of various panels and juries.

In 2018 Jan embarked upon a new chapter of his career by founding Konetzki. As Château Latour and Artemis Domaines Ambassador he also represents one of the world’s most prestigious and renowned wineries. Furthermore, he holds the position of a Director of Wine with Four Seasons, defining the standards of the entire wine business at the London Ten Trinity Square Hotel and Private Club.
