Wine is a daunting topic; at THE PIG we try to simplify it. The idea is to take away the pretentiousness and promote its enjoyment.
As part of our food and beverage team our Sommeliers play an important role within our restaurant and bar service. We offer an extensive wine list to our guests, from wines across the world, local British produce to our very own PIG offering!
We love wine so much, our latest additional to our group, THE PIG in the South Down has its very own vineyard!
As a Trainee Sommelier at THE PIG you will be working in our busy restaurant serving high quality wines to our lunch and dinner guests. During service you will be interacting with guests, pairing wines from our traditional underground cellar and providing recommendations to ensure a memorable experience to all.
Special wine should always be paired with suitably refined cuisine; those are the rules. But rules are made to be broken.
