Silvano Giraldin joins Just Great Wine

Published:  15 January, 2010

Silvano Giraldin has joined British wine merchant Just Great Wine as a consultant.

Founder member and now chairman of Les Arts de la Table, Giraldin also worked for 37 years as maitre d' and right-hand man of the Roux brothers at Le Gavroche.

Although officially retired, he has been working with Just Great Wine's managing director Martin Rimmer to create a new fine wine list for 2010.

Just Great Wine selects specialist, rare wines from smaller producers, the majority which are neither imported nor sold elsewhere in Britain in order to give restaurants a point of difference.

Giraldin's main role is to make contact with selected vineyards, advise on the best wines to include in the new list and introduce new restaurants to the portfolio.
