After twenty years in property development Stephen decided it was time to pursue his passion – fine wine; he first enjoyed wines with family friends growing up in Sydney and has been an avid collector for over 30 years.

Over time, and as the wine industry has evolved, Stephen saw the opportunity not just to collect wine to drink, but as an investment. He started to invest himself in the mid-eighties and when the opportunity arose he and two friends set up Bordeaux Cellars in 2007. They have now retired but Stephen has continued to develop and grow the business.

In 2011 Stephen was the first to offer loans secured against fine wines and Bordeaux Cellars continue to lead the market.

Stephen now spends his time advising clients on fine wine, and travelling worldwide organising wine dinners and charity auctions.
