Welcome Tim!

We're excited to confirm the appointment of Tim Severne as our new General Manager.

Tim has significant sales and marketing management experience working with leading New Zealand companies such as Glengarry Wines, Hancocks Wine, Spirit and Beer Merchants and Marisco Vineyards. He most recently held the position of Global Sales Manager at the Antipodes Water Company, New Zealand’s leading premium bottled water. Antipodes Water is sold in over 15 countries and enjoyed in many of the world’s greatest restaurants and hotels.

Our director Chris James said; “Tim has had twenty years’ experience in the New  wine and hospitality industry and is well known within the on and off premise markets. We believe, with his knowledge and enthusiasm that he will continue to expand the sales and promote the brand, so that it maintains its position as one of Central Otago’s leading producers of premium wines”.

Tim mentioned that he is proud to be leading a talented team at one of the great Central Otago wine companies. Seeing Rockburn Wines poured alongside great cuisine, and sold in premium retailers around the world will be a focus.
