After seven years with Thresher he moved to Watsons Wine Cellar, Hong Kong?s leading wine retailer, where he was promoted to General Manager. Four years later an opportunity to work as fine wine buyer for Watsons? fine wine arm, Badaracco, tempted him to relocate to Switzerland. In 2008 he followed his heart to set up his own wine business in Zurich, selling premium New World and French wines to trade and private customers within Switzerland (Real Wines), and sourcing and selling fine wines internationally (Wine Cellars International).
