The Exchequer Wine Bar in Ranelagh is excited to announce the appointment of Mr Javier Tena as Sommelier.

Javier originates from Madrid, Spain where he studied for a Masters Degree in Media Communications in the Rey Juan Carlos University. Before coming to our shores in Ireland last year, Javier spent a decade in the United Kingdom, predominately in London, where he attained a Level 3 merit in Wine & Spirit Education Trust’s (WSET) and AVANTA Customer Service Level 2.

Javier brings ten year’s experience to this role. His fervour for creating wine lists and helping patrons find a wine they love developed during the years he spent working in Gordon’s Wine Bar, the oldest wine bar in London. It was there he gained valuable experience developing pairing menus and introducing people from all over the world to new styles of wine.

Javier comes to us with an evident passion for wine along with a warm approach and an ability to share his knowledge about it.  His ambition is to bring this passion along with his experience and education in wine to your table in Ranelagh. He joins a team, led by General Manager Gordon Campbell, who are committed to delivering quality, value and accessibility to great food and wine. We list trusted and well-known wines, but also a few hidden, lesser-known gems. Javier will be there to introduce you to new wines to excite your palate.
