Wine Director at The Fladgate Partnership, Beatriz is also a Master of Sciences in Viticulture and Enology from the University of California at Davis, USA. Before engaging in the Wine Hospitality venture, Beatriz has been constantly challenged and successfully accomplished several projects, in Portugal and abroad with focus on sensory analysis of wines. 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 40,000-bottle wine cellar, which stocks the world’s most comprehensive collection of Portuguese table wines and Ports. Beatriz has created over 350 wine events; managed over 100 wine partnerships and trained a, now, wine specialized staff at The Fladgate Partnerhship. Under her guidance, The Yeatman Hotel won several wine awards, under which, the most important for “Best Regional Wine List in the World” by the World of Fine Wine Magazine. Since June 2017 Beatriz has started to work on the World of Wine cultural complex – the place to learn about Portuguese wine and position Portugal in the world. This emblematic project of The Fladgate Partnerhsip needs Beatriz’s focus by creating content and managing the Wine Experience (3.000m2) and Wine School to open to public in 2020.
