Biography

Since a visit to Chablis in July 1994, Tim has been on a 20+-year journey into wine. That became formalised through WSET Advanced then WSET Diploma with Distinction, including the McNie Tasting Trophy and Hors Concours prizes in 2010. He finally joined the MW Study Programme in October 2013. Throughout that time, Tim has kept books of interesting labels of wines he?s drunk, with associated notes, thoughts and occasionally autographs. Up to book six, he is now progressively uploading these 1,000+ entries onto his new website, winebook.co.uk. Tim is Marketing Director for a specialist mortgage business, but outside financial services marketing, Tim teaches wine through corporate wine tastings and is passionate about bringing the world of wine alive for consumers. This, in part, inspired his research paper topic. Beyond wine, Tim mostly cycles up mountains when the opportunity arises, with Madeira being a particularly tough challenge, and as a retired marathon runner now only runs the Marathon du Médoc, as an efficient way to visit Bordeaux Châteaux.
