Timothy Magnus Dip WSET - Weinakademiker

Passion. Knowledge. Experience.


After growing up in Australia and falling in love with wine from an early age, Timothy spent several years working in the New South Wales wine region Hunter Valley. In 2007 he met a Swiss wine lover and it was truly love at first sight. They married in 2008 and now live near Zürich Switzerland with their 2 young children.


  In 2012 he completed the WSET Level 4 Diploma through the Wine Academy Austria, becoming an Associate of the Institute of Wines & Spirits. In 2015 upon completion of his research thesis he received the title 'Weinakademiker' as well as winning the inaugural 'Swiss Wine Award' for his research thesis. Timothy is also a Bourgogne Wine Ambassador.


Since 2011 he has taught wine courses for different providers. Sharing his passion for wine is what Timothy lives for, which is the reason for establishing Magnus Vinum.


The logical final step for Timothy was to import wines from friends in Burgundy and offer them for sale in Switzerland.
