Anna Westermaier | Cellar Door Host

Anna Westermaier | Cellar Door Host

Where else would a Bavarian-born sommelier who doesn’t like beer end up other than Central Otago? Feeling a little like the black sheep of Bavaria for her avid interest in wine, rather than beer, Anna followed her nose to New Zealand in 2018 to see what all the fuss was about; she wasn’t disappointed.

A trained sommelier, with a diploma in hospitality management, Anna was immediately taken with the area that she had found herself in and started her hunt for a cellar door role where she could pass on her knowledge and passion for wine.

You can now find Anna on our boutique cellar door in Gibbston, spreading the good word of Rockburn!
