Going Dutch with 'Marvellous Marcel'

Posted by David Eley on 08-11-2008

I am delighted to announce that marvellous Marcel Swaghoven, the Meester Gastrenoom, bon viveur and mischievously funny Dutch sommelier is our brand new Wine Spy from Holland. Marcel is larger than life, passionate about fine wine and runs a highly regarded Michelin starred restaurant, together with his chef brother Eric. Based in Venlo, close by Maastricht on the Netherlands/Belgium frontier, Marcel welcomes visitors from all over Europe.

 

His first four wine recommendations have now been posted, with many more to come. Marcel has a first class palate and deals with great wines every day of his life... both professionally and for pleasure. His articulate descriptions and ability to define the wine in his glass will be a major asset to A Good Nose as we travel in Marcel's company, to private tastings and gourmet dinners at some of Europe's finest restaurants.
