Tim Wildman MW, judge on the DWWA Australia and Regional France panels in 2010

Tim Wildman MW hitch-hiked around Australia in 1989, aged 18, ending up in the Hunter Valley just after vintage, where he drank a bottle of Tyrrell's 1986 Hunter Valley VAT 47 Chardonnay out of plastic cups in the back of a camper van, and where his love affair with wine began from that day on. He passed his MW in 2008, writing his dissertation on attitudes towards Australian wine in the UK market. In 2009 he launched Winetec, an education and consultancy company, and in 2010, Wildman established James Busby Travel, a travel company set up with the aim of taking the up-and-coming generationof wine trade professionals to Australia's vineyards, thereby completing the circle that began more than 20 years ago with a bottle of Hunter Valley Chardonnay.
