Paul Huet - Director

Born and raised in Paris, Paul turned his back on a career in medicine to pursue his love of food and drink. After seven years in London under the tutelage of industry heavyweights like Michel Roux at Le Gavroche and earning his Diploma of Wine and Spirits, Paul swapped The Swinging City for sunny Sydney.

Joining Master Sommelier Franck Moreau at hospitality giant Merivale in 2013, Paul has been part of successful teams at Felix, Mr. Wong, est. and more. Taking charge of the wine program at numerous eastern Sydney venues, Paul is a professional and strategic beverage professional with a winning record of improving top-line revenue, up-skilling his teams and designing award-winning wine lists.

In 2020 he decided to take his restaurant skills to a broader audience and created The Wine Tip to fully live his passion of transmitting his love of wine.
This flourishing business has already helped numerous venues to develop their wine program and achieve their financial beverage goals.

Venues like Smore, Encasa, Annata, Queens St Eatery, Encasa, Shellhouse, Merivale, Coogee Wine Room, Sydney Wine Centre, Naked Wines, Vintage House and Spirits and the Gidley have trusted The Wine Tip with their business.
