Today on our Spotlight on Committee series, we have Marcell Kustos…

Marcell’s dedication and passion in wine education is at the forefront of his approach as a committee member for South Australia.

Having grown up surrounded by his family’s vineyards in Hungary, wine became a lifelong pursuit for Marcell, which saw him receive his PhD in Wine Science and Consumer Behaviour from the University of Adelaide.

His experiences include managing the beverage programs at the esteemed Penfolds Magill Estate and Restaurant Botanic; as a winemaker for LUDO Wines, which he founded in 2018; and as a fine wine and hospitality consultant, through his own Marcell Kustos Wine Concierge.

He loves how hospitality has no borders, gender, race or age, and is inspired to learn from one another in this industry.
