Posh Liquors Sommelier Consultant is Vanessa Treviño Boyd.
Vanessa Treviño Boyd “cut her wine teeth” in Chicago and in 2000 moved to New York where she managed wine lists for Japanese and French restaurants—in particular Alain Ducasse at the St. Regis with an 1800-selection list, four Sommeliers, three NY Times stars and two Michelin stars. Her work has been recognized in Food Arts, Santé, The New York Times, The Houston Chronicle, Houston Press and Wine & Spirits where she was a member of the import tasting panel for eight years. In April, 2012 she was awarded ‘Best New Sommelier’ by Food & Wine magazine, in October of that year was named ‘Houston’s Best Sommelier’ by Houston Press, and in 2013 was awarded ‘Best Wine List’ again by Houston Press for her work at Philippe Restaurant & Phil’s Wine Lounge. Most recently, in October, 2014, Vanessa was recognized in the yearly Houston Iron Sommelier competition in which she won “Best Presentation”. She has been a Guest Sommelier at Wine Spectator’s New York Wine Experience, Pebble Beach Food & Wine, Aspen Food & Wine, the International Pinot Noir Celebration and most proudly at America’s celebration of the wines of Burgundy, La Paulée. Vanessa holds an Advanced Certificate with the American Sommelier Association and was most recently the Beverage Director at 60 Degrees Mastercrafted in Houston, Texas, where she presided over a list both eclectic and classic. Now she is the Beverage Director at the Lakeside Country Club in Houston, Texas, providing the best personalized services available. She has also been consulting for retail and restaurant programs in Houston since 2011.
Vanessa has crafted our wine list with selections reaching from all over the world. All of the wine that she has selected is unique, and of great quality at Posh Liquors.
