Certified sommelier and food and beverage professional dedicated to bringing her clients the very best!

Elizabeth Dames is a sommelier and food and beverage professional dedicated to bringing her clients the very best. As a certified sommelier, Elizabeth is a highly trained and knowledgeable wine and spirit professional who can essentially heighten and maximize a person’s enjoyment of beverage (and food). She holds both a Level 3 Award from the Wine and Spirits Education Trust, as well as the title of Certified Sommelier by the Court of Master Sommeliers and is currently studying for her Advanced Sommelier Exam from the Court. Elizabeth has a wealth of experience in restaurants, catering, and private clubs and is always on the lookout for exciting new bottles to be opened because, no matter your experience or knowledge, there is always more to learn! She believes this holds particularly true in the world of wine and spirits, and she can tailor a fun and educational speaking engagement covering a broad range of disciplines and topics. Another idea is for Elizabeth to come to your event and do a fun (and educational!) “blind taste test”…she is knowledgeable on Wines, Bourbon/Whiskey, Gin, Tequila and Scotch, so she can bring a sampling of whatever wine/spirit you choose and have some fun with your guests! It’s an interesting way to learn more about other regions, styles and flavors and discover some hidden gems! She can also help you create your own “blends” using your spirit of choice and can customize her appearance to fit your event.
