It is in the Wine Cellar at The Yeatman, with 1,300 bottles of wine bearing witness, that we are welcomed by Beatriz Machado and the smile on her face. She tells us that when she was invited to join the Yeatman team, the CEO asked her if she knew all the Portuguese wines. She did not allow herself to become unnerved by the question, and promptly answered: “to know them all, I shall have to try them all”. And so she did. She tried them all and not only did she become the Yeatman’s Wine Director, as she also became the “Ambassador of Portuguese wines”.
