The importance of celebrating the joy that hospitality leaders deliver

Rebecca Lines is the co-owner of Barangaroo’s Tequila Daisy and boasts an impressive resume when it comes to hospitality and wine. Rebecca is also an award-winning Sommelier who has trained through The Wine and Spirit Education Trust (WSET). Rebecca and her husband Hamish Ingham were behind the award-winning Bar H in Surry Hills and then moved harbourside to Barangaroo to open and manage Banskii Vermouth Bar, which has since been reborn as a fun, fresh new Mexican concept Tequila Daisy.

So I feel fortunate to be able to talk with Rebecca on the podcast this week.

In this podcast we discuss:

-How Rebecca started out in the hospitality industry in NZ.

-Starting a new venue with a new baby at the same time.

-The balance of consultancy with the Four Seasons and having a venue as well.

-How Rebecca and Hamish her husband, came up with the idea of Tequila Daisy.

-What Rebecca found the toughest things about becoming a Sommelier and what advice she would give to others.

-How Rebecca developed the beverage program at the start of the venue.

-How the venue is handling the staffing crisis at the moment, and if they have discovered any new efficiencies.

-The joy of serving customers and how we should celebrate those in hospitality more.
