Tim Ritchie


Growing up in Wellington, Tim’s life was turned slightly upside down when the family decided to move to Brussels during his time in secondary school. Tim’s time in Belgium was punctuated by weekend road trips to destinations such as the Rhine, Alsace, Burgundy and Champagne. Thus began a lifelong love for wine - and Belgian beer and chocolate!
