Tim Robertson is the founder of this company and lets just focus a little on the history and how Robertson Wine Tours 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 Bordeaux wines and other top quality new World wines, probably the best collection in Asia at that time. He never quite recovered from tasting the very best at early age of 18. However, he went on to complete his studies in Economics and Business. Unable to find a suitably well-paid job in wine in London and so embarked on a career in finance. He kept his love of wine throughout his City Career working for Fidelity Investments, Schroder’s and Credit Suisse First Boston (CSFB) predominantly focusing on Latin American emerging markets, both risk management and fixed income sales. He left finance in 1998 to refocus on finding a project involving his love – Wine.
