Timothy Magnus

My drive is sharing my love for the great wines and terroirs of Burgundy.
Wine and me: What started as a hobby almost three decades ago in Australia, soon became a job and from there grew into an ever-increasing passion for Burgundy. Today, holding the titles of “Weinakademiker” and “Bourgogne Wine Ambassador”, I gladly share this passion with you: Exclusive wines from handpicked producers, events, workshops and more.

Let’s raise a glass.

My Promises

My promises are not extraordinary, but they are genuine.
Magnus Vinum retails a selection of direct-imported wines from Burgundy. I spend a lot of time exploring this fascinating region sourcing great wines that I believe will be the stars of tomorrow. The domaines I work with make authentic wines with a high level of quality, sustainability and individuality.

The last few years have seen me teaching about the Burgundy wine region worldwide. My career as a lecturer began in 2011 and in recent years has focussed almost exclusively on Burgundy. Since 2019 I have started working with the prestigious Wine Scholar Guild. Currently I am developing the new ‘Bourgogne Master Level - Intensive’ program – a 1-week immersive study program on the wines of Burgundy taking place in Beaune, the wine capital of Burgundy.

My goal is to inspire!

Passion for quality delivered honestly through great wines.


The true soul of Burgundy is expressed by wines and producers who accurately express the underlying terroirs with honesty and clarity.
My greatest aspiration is to make your life a little more delicious with a glass of Burgundy wine. Let’s raise a glass.


Passion is very important, but so is competence.
