Tim Robertson is the founder of this company. Here we focus on the history and how Robertson Wine Tours (RWT) came about:

Tim was introduced to fine wines in 1988 when he worked for Sakagura Wine and Liquor, part of the Intercontinental Group in Hong Kong. Tim was responsible for selling their collection of the Bordeaux and Burgundy  and new world wines, arguably the best collection in Asia at that time. After completing his studies in Economics and Business he embarked on a career in investment banking (Fidelity Investments, Schroder’s and Credit Suisse First Boston). He left finance to inaugurate Robertson Wine Tours.

Robertson Wine Tours started operations in South America and the company and has since grown organically to include an operating base in Italy as an Italian Srl from 2011.

Over the Years RWT have worked closely with Lufthansa, Jetsetter and  Secret Escapes on group tours and promotions. Frommer’s, Lonely Planet, TimeOut, Bradt guides, Condé Nast Travel, LAN have all written favourably about RWT. Business is predominantly conducted on referrals and  reputation.

'Grazie Mille from Louisiana!'
 Yes, we are home! The return trip is always harder because of the long hours and saying 'goodbye for a while' to new friends! What a unique and memorable trip! We came home with 'little pieces of Italy' and BIG memories! I truly believe it is the people we meet on...
