Matthew Arnall, CSW, MBA

Wine Director and Sommelier at Baltaire

Starting in hospitality at 18 years old and after many years in hotel management, Matthew found himself at Gramercy Park Hotel sandwiched between an Ian Schrager night club (Rose Bar) and a Danny Meyer restaurant (Mialino). He changed everything to get himself into the food and beverage industry and restart his career, and it wasn’t long before the road down wine began. Working from coast to coast gaining experience, Matthew became a Certified Sommelier and Certified Specialist in Wine in 2016. Now in Los Angeles, he is the Wine Director for the growing Baltaire restaurant group and specializes in classic wines. Other career highlights include a MBA from Johnson and Wales, multiple award-winning wine lists, and over 17 years experience.
