Before engaging in this new venture in Wine Hospitality, Beatriz was a wine consultant in the Douro and the Alentejo, offering several short courses on sensory analysis of wines and panel performance evaluation to the Portuguese wine industry.
Her passion for wines and her belief that quality Portuguese wines need to be introduced and promoted to a global audience led her to accept the challenge to be the first Wine Director of a 5-star wine hotel in Portugal and join The Yeatman team.
Since June 2010, Beatriz has selected and now oversees a 20,000-bottle wine cellar, which stocks the world’s most comprehensive collection of Portuguese table wines and Ports.
Married and with a child, Beatriz is a foodie, enjoys travelling and is a photography enthusiast.
Under her guidance The Yeatman won the award in 2011 for "Best Wine List” from leading Portuguese wine magazine "Revista de Vinhos”.
