Jeremy Broto-mur’s 10-year journey through the wine world to his current role at Cafe Boulud started practically, with an internship as a commis waiter at Restaurant le Rive Droite in Villecomtal, France. At the time, he was studying hospitality management at École Des Metiers du Gers, and he felt instantly attracted to the atmosphere and energy of the front of house. He expanded his wine vocabulary at Jacques de Romas vocational school and received formal training in the sommelier arts at the Four Seasons Paris. He held his first professional position as commis sommelier at two Michelin-star Château de La Chèvre d’Or, before he dropped the commis and became a sommelier at Hambleton Hall in Oakham, England.

In 2009, Broto-mur was a winning sommelier at the WorldSkills France competition, the same year he moved to Dublin to take on the assistant head sommelier slot at Restaurant Patrick Guilbaud. For two years after that, he was assistant wine director at Philippe Rochat’s three Michelin-star Restaurant de l’Hotel de Ville in Switzerland. By 2012, he’d made it to Gary Danko in San Francisco, where he was sommelier for a year before returning to Switzerland as assistant wine director for Chef Anne Sophie Pic’s two Michelin-starred Beau-Rivage Palace Lausanne. Broto-mur received his certified sommelier designation from the Court of Master Sommeliers in 2015 and moved to Palm Beach later that year to take over his first wine program at Chef Daniel Boulud’s Cafe Boulud.
