James Tomlinson

Fine Wine Manager
0493 262 657

James is proudly South Australian, an Adelaide Crows tragic and immensely proud of the superb wines that SA produces. After discovering wine and Bob Dylan amongst other diversions at university, he developed a passion for travelling to discover the fine wines of Barossa, McLaren Vale and Coonawarra, meeting winemakers and learning about winemaking.

Despite James having an all-consuming interest in wine, his corporate career consumed most of his time. However, in 2019 he felt the impulse to leave the corporate world and truly follow his passion for wine. He set about educating himself, obtaining his WSET3 with distinction, and learning the ropes in the retail ‘trenches’ at the likes of Dan Murphy’s and Vintage Cellars.

With age and a growing curiosity for all things wine, his attraction to the big, wide world of winemaking, its regions, varieties, personalities, philosophies and history has intensified. He loves learning and talking about wine from all over the world, which brings him to MacPhee’s, ready to offer client’s a tailor-made wine experience.
