    Henry Dawson-Damer - Fine Wine Specialist

    Henry Dawson-Damer was born in Australia, but has spent much of his life living between Europe and Australia. Graduating from Edinburgh University in Scotland with an MA Honours Degree in Geography, Henry was awarded one of the Faculty's highest commendations for his comprehensive thesis on the Australian Wine Industry. In December 1993, Henry, alongside winemaker Simon Gilbert, undertook a bold project to convert a redundant milk factory in the Hunter Valley into a 1000 tonne crushing and winemaking facility. It was here that Henry developed his winemaking skills and his understanding of numerous wine varieties and styles from all over Australia. In 1997, Henry moved from winemaking to wine marketing, when he joined Cellarmaster Wines. Henry then joined Rosemount Estate in 1998 as a wine marketing executive. In 2001, following the merger of Rosemount Estate and Southcorp Wines, he was appointed Global Marketing Director for the company’s boutique wine brands. Following Foster’s acquisition of Southcorp, he was appointed Senior Manager of Wine Education, sharing the love of more than 60 wine brands throughout Australia, Europe and North America. Henry is currently studying for the London-based Institute of Masters of Wine program. Combining his experiences in winemaking, wine marketing and wine education, Henry continues his role as wine specialist / fine wine advisor for many of the finest wine brands in the world.
