Rob always had a passion for wine, and after a 17 year career in the city he felt that it was time for a new challenge. So with this in mind, Rob embarked on a degree in Wine Business at Plumpton College. This was an interesting time for Rob, going back to the classroom, getting used to casual wear (Rob spent most days in a suit and tie) … Oh, and discovering his wife was unexpectedly pregnant with their first child … so no pressure to make this wine hobby a success!
Along with his business partner Henry, Rob built (literally) and developed Symposium, creating the vision of his daydreams.
Rob is always looking for a new wine to rave about. But mostly enjoys Italian reds and Pinot Noir from Felton Road. He has more recently developed a palate for Gin.
In rare moments away from Symposium Rob has 1 wife, 2 children and 5 hungry chickens.
