Meet The Team


JOHN (2)


John, aka Spud, is our resident Japanese speaker, wine expert and crowd pleaser. He has been delighting customers with his humour and wine knowledge since 2008.

When he’s not working, John enjoys eating out and planning holidays with his wife Robyn, music, reading books (e.g. murder mysteries, Australian history), cheering on the tigers in the AFL, golf, cooking and gardening.

And a favourite wine? Well that’s a hard question, but his preferred grape variety is Chardonnay.



Profile to come…


Customer Service Team


matt (1)



Since 1998 Matt has been running the Australian Wine Tour Company.

“I enjoyed travelling the world and visiting winery regions but I couldn’t find a full day tour with a variety of wineries and a great lunch at a great price. So I thought, I can do that! And I did. In my home town of Melbourne.”


When he’s not at work, Matt spends time fishing, BBQing, travelling, watching sport, airplane spotting and spending time with his family and two sons.  Favourite holiday destinations include Hong Kong, Singapore, Las Vegas, New York and Melbourne for their energy, culture and food.


And after tasting so many great wines, he can safely say his favourite is La Grand Dame by Veuve Clicquot.


Cath has been with AWTC for over 10 years, in between taking time off to raise her two beautiful children. Managing our agent relationships, sales and travel arrangements, Cath is a tourism industry veteran who brings her professionalism and helpfulness to work everyday.
