Liza B. Zimmerman
Food & Drink
I have been writing, educating and consulting about wine, cocktails and food for more than two decades. I also do innovative wine events for corporate team building and educational projects for wine producers and regions. I have worked almost every angle of the wine and food business: from server and consultant to positions in distribution, education and sales. My approach to wine education is savvy, down to earth and unpretentious. I focus on demystifying wine and transforming it into a daily joy and a tool for business and networking for clients and readers. I have visited all the world’s major wine-growing and spirits-producing regions — 50-plus countries and counting — and am one of several hundred people in the U.S. to hold the Diploma of Wine & Spirits (D.W.S.), the three-year program that is the precursor to the Master of Wine.
