Dennis Lemmens (43) has worked at Château Neercanne since 2001, gaining his position as the restaurant’s Maître d’Hotel in 2007. In his new role as Food & Beverage Manager at Winselerhof in Landgraaf, he will be responsible for the service teams in Restaurant Pirandello, Luigi’s Restaurant & Bar and banqueting. In this exciting new role Dennis will bring his skill and expertise to his new team and build on the continuing gastronomic ambitions of Winselerhof.
Regarding his promotion Dennis says: “For me this is a great new challenge to lead a bigger team in a different property, but still it feels familiar because I will continue to work for the Oostwegel family’s business.”

Gilbert von Berg (38) has worked alongside the culinary team of Restaurant Château Neercanne since 2007, taking on the role of Chef de Cuisine in November 2017. For his next career move, he has chosen to follow his entrepreneurial ambitions. In spring 2021 he will open his own, small scale, restaurant in Maastricht.
Of his career change, Gilbert says: “It has always been a dream of mine to have my own restaurant in Maastricht where I can strive to achieve my ambitions. I had a great time and education at Château Neercanne but the opportunity has presented itself for me to start my own business and I want to grab it with both hands.”
