Belgium Wine Watchers - Best Wine Auctions

Founder - Owner - General Manager

Being allowed to discover the world of wines from a gastronomic passion. 
There is nothing greater than having a beautiful glass of wine accompanied by beautiful culinary creations.
Left my restaurant behind in the year 2000 to focus 100% on the international wine trade. 

Now, more than 23 years later, my adoration for wine has only grown,
and knowing that we have customers across more than 65 countries who appreciate wine as much as we do ...


"Because We Share The Same Passion"

William Van Den Bossche

Wine Expert and manager of International Sales and Marketing

It all started in a wine shop, where I got the wine bug - looking for wine estates and new discoveries is pure fun.

I soon focused on wine and food pairing, and for years I worked as a sommelier where I learned how to use my tastebuds to the fullest! Advising customers and managing wine cellars were part of my duties. Afterwards, I worked for an auction house.

Now I work as an International Sales Manager for Belgium Wine Watchers & Best Wine Auctions, where I can apply my sales skills.

Senior Wine Expert - Purchaser

Having spent my childhood in the vineyards of southern France, I became interested in wines at an early age.

In 1993, I started working in the wine segment of a department store, until I discovered Belgium Wine Watchers in 2006.

As a buyer's assistant, I can combine my passion for wine with my job, and have recently also been able to do so at Best Wine Auctions as a Wine Expert.

Wine Expert - Purchaser

A sip from a glass of Evangile 1996 was my first experience, which made me immerse myself in the world of wine. Since then, the wine bug has gotten hold of me and I started studying the history of wine.

Every bottle in a cellar, every collection made by an enthusiast has its own story. I've been translating this story into correct price indications since 2014 at Belgium Wine Watchers and since 2018 at Best Wine Auctions.

Luc Brabants

Senior Warehouse and Logistics Manager

I have been working for Belgium Wine Watchers since 2008 and have become more and more passionate in wines.

At the moment, as Warehouse/Logistics Manager, I mainly check all the wines that are brought in and make a correct inventory.
All wines that are sold must also pass through me for inspection.

You can contact me for orders, extra photos of certain bottles or just a little more explanation about the wines.

I love a wide range of wines, but at the moment my preference goes to wines from sunny Tuscany like the Brunello di Montalcino or the Super Tuscans, and for white wines, I prefer German Rieslings.

Glenn Cambré

Wine Expert and manager of International Sales and Marketing

With a background in hotel management, I started my career as a sommelier in a renowned starred restaurant, where my love for wine was awakened and refined. After my time in the restaurant world, I moved into the realm of buying and selling in a wine shop, where I further developed my knowledge and experience.

Now I have found my niche where I fully thrive in the world of international sales and can use my passion for wine in various ways. For me, wine transcends the level of a simple product; it is an emotion that connects and charms people. With my expertise and love for wine, I aspire to inspire and enchant others with the fascination of this timeless elixir.

I work within the Belgium Wine Watchers' warehouse,
 I make sure all the transport boxes are folded and are ready to be filled with the wines sold.

I help my colleagues with incoming orders and retrieve sold wines from the warehouse. 

And am proud to say that I have been working here for over 10 years!
