Tim Severne | General Manager

Tim Severne General Manager

Raised in Ponsonby and surrounded in hospitality from an early age, Tim was brought up in a social “community” with parents from the rag trade and advertising industries. It was the '80s; the era of indulgent long lunches and affordable champagne.

Wine was always flowing at the Severne’s (still is) and a visit to the local wine store was always an outing.  Fast forward to the late 90’s while Tim was at university, a part time job was required and that same wine retailer was looking for some help.  Over the next 20+ years Tim’s worked with and alongside many legendary wineries, retailers, distributors and personalities from all corners of the globe.

At home you’ll find Tim enjoying a cheeky glass of Chardonnay or Pinot Noir with his wife Hali.  It’s a busy household with both a young daughter and son - let’s make that a bottle!
