Author, The Simple and Savvy Wine Guide .
"Tim knows more about all phases of the wine business than anyone I know. He's a fountain of knowledge, has extensive contacts and simply makes things happen. He "gets it," when all too many wine consultants don't"
Wine Critic, San Francisco Chronicle.
"Veteran wine marketing consultant Tim McDonald is perhaps one of the best in the field. Over the past decade, I have run into him at nearly every nook and cranny of the wine business and especially as a judge in major wine competitions. McDonald works it and absorbs information like a sponge. He is one of those guys who has so much information that one doesn't want to know what he knows. He is doing precisely what everyone in the wine marketing world should be doing, keeping his ears to the ground and letting nothing go unnoticed. One of McDonald's great axioms is, "If you are a great marketer, you can sell anything." (Actually I modified it a bit to keep my PG rating)"
