Tim qualified as a Master of Wine in 2017 and is a refugee from the world of finance. He read Chemistry at Oxford and gained an MBA at London Business School in 2004. A keen sportsman, he is also a particularly assiduous recorder of tasting notes which you can see in his winebook. You can read more about him here, and in his autobiographical entry in our 2018 wine writing competition. He is based in London and travels widely throughout the wine world, particularly with fellow MWs. He is on the IMW’s Education Committee, helping set the practice tasting papers for student seminars, an important role. In September 2020 he took on a role as head of marketing for Amathus Drinks in the UK so he will no longer be writing about other UK importers or retailers but will continue to share his impressions from his wine travels and non-commecial tastings. See his 20th anniversary video.
