Rory Conniffe is a Sommelier living in Belfast and working in the north of Iceland. Following graduation from Trinity College Dublin, he was first bitten by the wine bug in 2012 working at a fine dining steakhouse in Chicago. Despite returning to a Masters and burgeoning career in Business Consultancy, he couldn’t quite shake the feeling that wine might be more than a hobby and signed up to the WSET’s entry level courses. In July 2017, having just passed the WSET Level 3 and the Certified Sommelier exam with the Court of Master Sommeliers, he went all in – joining the Sommelier team of Michael Deane’s Michelin star restaurant EIPIC. In 2019 he passed the WSET Diploma and accepted the position of Head Sommelier at Deplar Farm in Iceland. He is currently preparing to pursue higher wine certification, participate in his first Sommelier competition and expand his professional repertoire to include writing and teaching.
