We turn our focus on Michael Fisher, for today’s ‘Spotlight on Committee’ series…

Born and bred Tasmanian, our TAS Committee member, Michael, is a much respected and familiar figure in the local dining scene.

His experiences encompass front-of-house operations and wine wholesales.  As a certified sommelier, Michael started out at The Source in MONA, and then at Me Wah in Hobart.  His career also took him to work in the Melbourne dining scene.

Returning the Tasmania, Michael pivoted to the wholesale and distribution sector, working for trusted companies such as Negotiants Australia and Cellarhand Wine Distribution.  Here, he built his business acumen and expanded his network.

In the end, Michael’s love and passion for hospitality has put him firmly back into front-of-house.  He is currently the Hotel Sommelier for The Tasman, and the Assistant Restaurant Manager for their in-house restaurant, Peppina.
