Tim grew up in Gisborne working on his family vineyard, the renown Judd Estate. In 1998, in his late 20s, he moved to Auckland to work in Matua Valley’s Winery. Then back in Gisborne for a brief stint, he managed GISVIN through their inaugural harvest in 2002.
After five years in the cellar at Matua Valley, Tim was promoted to National Operations Manager, responsible for Cap-Ex and Op-EX for the winery, bottling and warehousing, while managing the day-to-day operations and staffing of the Matua’s bottling and warehousing.
As Vintech Pacific grew, Tim’s vision was always to come on board and be part of the business. In 2011 he relocated his family to Marlborough to become South Island Manager for Vintech Pacific.
