French and American citizen with extensive experience on all levels of the wine trade, André Tamers started in the business in 1985 as buyer at a restaurant with a wine list of 150 selections. Having lived extensively in France, he decided to move to Spain for a change. In Spain he lived in Barcelona where he studied painting at the well-known Escola Eina. During this sabbatical period, he traveled extensively throughout the viticulture regions of Europe allowing him to nurture contacts in the winemaking world. André’s fluency in both French and Spanish has been influential in discovering little-known producers.
