Sommelier Internship

  • Stage
Company Description
Next to the famed Jerusalem Chapel, this 16th-century orphanage is now home to intimate boutique hotel Relais & Châteaux Weeshuis Gouda, fine dining restaurant LIZZ and Coffee & Cocktailbar COCO. With elegant original details and a wink to the 21st century, Weeshuis Gouda celebrates the discrete charm of this city nestled in the country’s “Green Heart” and in easy reach of The Hague, Rotterdam and Utrecht.

Comfort fine dining Restaurant LIZZ stands for garden-fresh, light, seasonal and sustainable cuisine. Chef Remco Kuijpers* (Fitzgerald, Rotterdam, The Netherlands) love for healthy food is reflected in incredible vegetarian options on each menu. He carefully selects only the best ingredients, ideally from local suppliers and producers. All are harvested at the perfect moment and used in an exploratory way; authentic but always with a modern twist – taking into account the local setting of Weeshuis Gouda and its historical references. We hope our food will always remind of the unique taste of Holland, and instill lasting positive memories.

Job description
As a sommelier you have the passion to transfer your product and wine knowledge to your colleagues and you do not shy away from the workplace. You create a pleasant atmosphere for guests and employees. You are critical and pay attention to details and neatness, but you do not lose the overview.
