Tim Adams is based in Marlborough and has been working as a winemaker for more than a decade. "I'm passionate about Marlborough and Central Otago grapes and know and understand how to get the best flavours from these grapes." says Tim.

Great wines are made in the vineyard

Tim believes that great wines are made first in the vineyard and he therefore spends a good deal of each year working along side Toi Toi's vineyard managers and growers ensuring the fruit is of the highest quality.

When Tim is not tripping the world making and promoting wine, he enjoys New Zealand's natural environment with mountain biking and cyclocross, which he is passionate about.
