Noemie then moved to London to further expand her knowledge where she worked with Master Sommelier Joao Pires at the Mandarin Oriental. In 2015, Noemie was a part of the (re)opening of the Lanesborough Hotel where they gained one Michelin star through passionate and dedicated team work.
Noemie then moved to St James's Hotel and Club for a new challenge where she built an extensive 1000 (mini) bins wine-list with Head Sommelier Gonzalo Rodriguez Diaz.
