Kavita Devi Faiella
Kavita Devi Faiella originally set out to become a pediatrician. A holiday in Italy set her on a new path when she discovered a passion for wine and winemaking. Kavita had the chance to work alongside some of Australia’s most influential and celebrated chefs, including Steve Manfredi, Neil Perry and Tim Connell.
Ron Gorgiou, one of only 18 Australians to hold the title of Master of Wine, tapped Kavita to be the head sommelier of the Hilton property in the Maldives and after two years Kavita was offered the role of Regional Cellarmaster for Aman Resorts in South-East Asia. In this role, she spent two years working with wine consultant Alejandro Ortiz training the Aman staff and launching the new wine program for the 24 resorts.
Kavita joined the Press Room Group as Wine Director in 2011 and is now responsible for the wine selections and concepts in all of the group’s restaurants.
