About Mark Weijman
Mark’s passion about wine started with his career at Restaurant Het Koetshuis, awarded with one Michelin star. As part of the restaurant team, he became acquainted with fine wines from around the world. To learn the techniques of tasting, analyzing and serving the wine felt like magic. To make a day special with a good glass of wine to guests was not a job but a joy.
After the ‘Hospitality’ vocational education at the Vakschool Wageningen he continued his studies at the BA Hospitality Hotel School of Leeuwarden. During his hotel school years at Leeuwarden, he enjoyed a 6 months WSET-3 course at the Cape Wine Academy of Stellenbosch.
Once back in The Netherlands he started working as a marketeer at De L’Europe hotel in Amsterdam, a member of The Leading Hotels of the World. His devoted passion for wine and his marketing experience led later to a role as Brand Manager at one of the largest Dutch wine distributors. In this role he executed the marketing plans for some European wineries for the Dutch on-trade market. At this point, he met Corinne and Marcel and became everlasting wine friends. To develop and grow his knowledge about wine, Mark started the ‘Gastronomy & Sommelier Course’ at the Academy of Gastronomy in Apeldoorn, The Netherlands.
