Tim Schwilk

Tim created the Sydney Wine Centre in 2009 in order to offer Sydneysiders the chance to learn about wine in a way that was accessible and enjoyable.

Since then Tim has guided the Sydney Wine Centre through it's path to now be the leading provider of wine appreciation events to Sydney's public and corporate markets.

Tim has recently been focusing on exploring new opportunities for the Sydney Wine Centre including importing boutique wines from Europe and providing niche travel experiences combining Wine and Sport. Recent trips have included visits to France for the Tour de France and New Zealand and Argentina, tying in visits to vineyards with Waratah and Wallaby matches.

Tim is an accredited WSET Educator with a passion for communicating about wine. Furthermore with over 15 years experience in various aspects of the trade including Retail, Import/Export, Legal, Marketing and Management, Tim has a wealth of experience and a diverse skill set for his consulting clients.

When not drinking wine, Tim follows virtually every sport on the planet with particular nods to Cricket, Rugby, AFL and Darts.
