Cooperages 1912 welcomes Paul Tippett to the team

Cooperages 1912 has welcomed Paul Tippett to its team.

Tippett jumped on board mid-year after 14 years’ experience with a highly regarded Burgundian cooperage.

He joins Steve Chapman as oak barrel consultant, with responsibility for Australia (McLaren, Vale, Clare, Riverland, Victoria, Riverland, Tasmania) and New Zealand. 

By liaising closely with winemakers, Tippett has demonstrated an excellent ability to match the most appropriate barrel for the desired wine style. 

He will represent the breadth of Cooperages 1912’s barrel portfolio, serving as barrel consultant within his territories for Heinrich Cooperage, Tonnellerie Quintessence and World Cooperage barrels.
