Ormer Mayfair names Svetoslav Manolev as new head sommelier

Ormer, the critically-acclaimed restaurant at Flemings Mayfair hotel, part of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World, has appointed Svetoslav Manolev as head sommelier.

Holding over a decade of experience, Manolev has worked at some of London’s most renowned establishments including COYA Mayfair, Park Chinois, Roka and most recently 67 Pall Mall.

As assistant head sommelier at private members’ club 67 Pall Mall, Manolev managed a team of 18 sommeliers and assisted with curating and overseeing its 4,000-strong wine list.

As head sommelier at Ormer Mayfair, Manolev will have the opportunity to work closely alongside chef Shaun Rankin, who won Jersey-based restaurant Bohemia a Michelin star.

The sommelier will also be responsible for the operational management of all wines within the restaurant and hotel, including Manetta’s bar.

Manolev said: “I am delighted to be joining the team at Ormer and working alongside head chef Kerth Gumbs to develop some wonderful pairing menus.

“I look forward to introducing diners to new styles of wine not previously offered at the restaurant, as well as hosting intimate tasting events in The Barrel Room.”
