Lindsey Young

Beverage Director, Ittoryu Gozu

Lindsey Young is a native Californian. She grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area, with strong roots and family influence from Louisiana, both of which contributed to her appreciation for culinary arts at a young age. She has a BA degree in Landscape Architecture from UC Davis. This education is where she was first introduced to the concept of relationship between terroir, vineyards and wine.

After having held many different positions in the restaurant industry, she decided to pursue her Sommelier Certification out of a passion for the interaction between food and wine. Since achieving certification, she has worked as Sommelier at Alexander’s Steakhouse, Beverage Director at Park Tavern, and is currently the Beverage Director for Ittoryu Gozu in San Francisco. She recently passed her Advanced Sommelier Certification through the Court of Master Sommeliers, and is aiming to take the MS exam in July of 2020.
