Sir Walter Scott (1771-1832)

Even Legends retire....
Tom Gilbey, I have known for 30 years or more, when he used to come to my parents hotel in Perthshire to discuss opportunities on their 300 bin winelist.
A quietly confident man, whose laid back air belies the amazing depth of knowledge he possesses about wine, the ‘drinks’ industry and fair to say life itself! His engaging and warm manner coupled with a soft salesman’s intent is a dangerous combination and highly effective.
He has visited and worked in many of the world’s wine producing regions and has a particular interest in Bordeaux where his family once owned Chateau Loudenne in the Medoc, and he has been the cornerstone of Cockburns of Leith.
His retirement, for him, will be a well earned rest, but we will all miss his engaging nature and strength of character, and I know clients and staff alike will offer our deepest thanks and gratitude, and best wishes for the future.
