New Orleans native Liz Dowty Mitchell began her hospitality and wine career at The Wine Loft and the Ralph Brennan Restaurant Group. She has devoted the last 15 years to learning everything she can about wine, traveling to all major wine-producing regions, and working in all aspects of the industry, including wine bars, wine shops, restaurants, wine distributors, and importers. Throughout her professional career, she has remained active in the sommelier community, completing all three portions of the Master Sommelier Diploma. Liz has also competed in and won various national sommelier competitions over the years and been a judge, speaker, and participant in many of the premier wine festivals throughout the country. When Liz is not “working,” you can find her spending time with her 3-year-old-son, Alexander, and husband John Mitchell. Today, she runs her own company Mitchell Somm Selections and is the Global Wine Trader for Vino Vest.
Stay tuned- Liz will be featured on The Somm Set throughout July 2021!
