A tasting with Tim Bourne, winemaker at Escarpment Vineyards in Martinborough, New Zealand.
Tim and Harriet will be talking about and tasting the range of Pinot Noirs from this celebrated North Island estate.
Initially graduating with a BSc, majoring in Geography, Tim spent a few years working and travelling and not knowing what he wanted to do. After returning from OE in the UK, he fell on his feet with his first vintage in Marlborough, and caught the wine bug. He then went back to study a post-graduate diploma in Oenology through EIT in the Hawke’s Bay.
Short stints in Central Otago and Waipara, along with a vintage in The Great Southern Region in Western Australia, lead Tim to the Barossa Valley. After working in the Barossa for nearly 7 years, Tim once again returning to Marlborough. eventually taking up the opportunity to work with Larry and the fantastic Escarpment wines.
