Timothy Magnus Dip WSET - Weinakademiker
Passion. Knowledge. Experience.
After growing up in Australia and falling in love with wine from an early age, I spent several years working in the New South Wales wine region Hunter Valley. In 2007 I met a Swiss wine lover and it was truly love at first sight. We married in 2008 and now live near Zürich Switzerland with our 2 young children.
In 2012 I 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 my research thesis I received the title 'Weinakademiker' as well as winning the inaugural 'Swiss Wine Award' for my research thesis. I am also an Accredited International Bordeaux Wine Educator. Since 2011 I have taught wine courses for different companies and schools including Switzerland's largest and most famous.
Sharing my passion for wine is what I live for, which is the reason for establishing Magnus Vinum.
