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.
Luca Piscazzi held two Michelin stars at La Dame de Pic London by Anne-Sophie Pic and recently relocated to Greece to open his first solo restaurant, Pelagos Athens at Four Seasons Astir Palace Athens. Low-key yet an innovative thinker who enjoys experimenting, he is invested in bringing out the rich flavours, subtle aromas and varied textures of seasonal ingredients while ensuring guests can immediately recognize what is on their plates.
