A short story
After dropping out from his Nanotech Engineering studies, Arvid decided to follow his passion and enrolled at Grythyttan School of Hospitality & Culinary Arts. After graduating he settled in Copenhagen, Denmark, where he spent six years, growing from a floor Sommelier of a busy restaurant to Wine Director for an ambitious group of almost a dozen establishments.
It was during this same period that Arvid started his career in competing. After enrolling to his first ever contest, the Best Sommelier in Sweden, in 2009 and getting 2nd place, he was immediately hooked. He went off to claim in the same year the title in the Nordics, followed by Sweden in the next year, and Europe three years later.
Nearing thirty, Arvid had become a bit restless and needed to get away from spreadsheets and negotiations and back on the floor, with the guests and the bottles. He moved to New York, where he worked in SoHo for a couple of years, spending most nights hustling bottles at Charlie Bird, and later co-founded the acclaimed restaurant Legacy Records.
In 2016 he went to Argentina to compete with other 60 top sommeliers from around the world for the title of World’s Best Sommelier. The competition is only held every three years and since its inception in 1969 there had only been 14 who have claimed the title. After four days of grueling tests of knowledge, service and blind tasting skills, ending with a final in front of a live audience and live streamed to the world, Arvid Rosengren became the 15th ever to earn the title of Best Sommelier of the World.
Since 2015, Arvid runs King Street Sommeliers, a consulting company focused on cellar management and wine experiences for private collectors and hospitality clients.

“As the Vintec Global Ambassador, I frequently host tastings on specific topics, provide wine recommendations, and reply to members questions on serving, cellaring, and collecting. It is great to engage with such a lively and passionate community.”
OENO by Vintec
“OENO by Vintec adds another layer to the Vintec experience. It is a unique tool that makes easy to organize a wine inventory and keep track of bottles. As a wine consultant, it is common to see clients with larger collections, forgetting about bottles, and missing out the right moment for enjoying certain wines, usually drinking them past their best or, at times, too soon. With OENO, you can get recommendations on drinking windows or add your own, so you won't miss out on the opportunity of enjoying your wines at their best.
“In addition, it offers useful tips on serving and cellaring so you can organize your collection, drink your wines, and entertain your guests in the best way possible.”
