Due to the hotel’s dynamic nature and concept, in 2016, she became Head Sommelier at The Yeatman, where she was responsible for 100 wine partnerships with the hotel’s wine producers and for the most comprehensive Portuguese wine cellar in the world, housing over 1200 wine references and 25 000 bottles. Elisabete Fernandes is also responsible for The Yeatman ‘s wine programme, organising all the wine events and managing the Hotel’s award-winning wine lists which have won many national and international awards.
