Consulting Testimonials:

“Lindsay, it is with great pleasure that I sit down today to thank you for all of the help and professionalism you’ve demonstrated while helping me to establish my new store, Dudley’s Wine & Gifts. My store began with a vision of a wine and gift shop with wines from throughout the world and fun gifts and accessories. Yet all I really had was a vision. It was only with your practical consulting and advice that I was able to put my dream into action. Your time introducing me to so many wonderful Wine Distributors and business contacts gave me a clear path to a completed project. Your inside knowledge of the wine industry and overall knowledge of wine was a great asset to us, and as a result, you and I have built a wine list for the store that will be the envy of Southern California! Your assistance in helping us properly set up our on-line newsletter and inventory control systems will be an invaluable addition to our business, and all along you taught me things about wine that I never knew I never knew! Lindsay, most important of all to my wife Chris and I, was you never ending enthusiasm and personal interest in our project. We couldn’t have gotten this far without you!”-Eric D.


Lindsay and I began working together in November 2006, when she accepted the position of Sommelier or “Wine Director” at Dussini Mediterranean Bistro; she immediately impressed me with her positive demeanor, charisma and vast knowledge of all that is wine.

Since being here she has continued to impress me, she has single handedly taken our staff from knowing little about wine, to a place where they can answer almost any question about wines from the United States and abroad. Not to mention the absolutely fantastic wine list that she has created for Dussini, which, might I mention, has won Wine Spectator Awards of Excellence every year. I can speak for my entire team when I say that she is a pleasure to work with and supports the restaurant and management team in every way.

Lindsay has always been willing to offer help in any way, despite her busy schedule and has an excellent rapport with her coworkers and guests. I feel incredibly lucky to have met her and feel as though she has been an integral part of Dussini’s success.”-Carrie R.
