Cassidy Dart MW joins Company Fine Wine as global wine consultant

Cassidy Dart MW joined California-based merchant Company Fine Wine last month as its global wine consultant.

Dart, originally from South Africa, was director of wine at the Pol Roger Portfolio from 2008 until February this year.

Dart explained that his new job, “will be split between our existing clients and our winery partners around the world, to both source and sell fine wine. I will be a liaison for wineries as we look to increase our allocations of certain wines, and will work with our clients as they build their collections.

“Of course as an MW I will look to continue educating our clients and team, as well as organising special guided visits to our favourite producers.”

CFW’s founder, Matt Wilson, commented: “We are very much looking forward to Cassidy working with us at CFW as we take the company to the next level”.

Dart will be moving to Beijing later this year, not at the instruction of CFW but because his wife is taking up a new job there herself.

Nonetheless, Dart said his job required a global reach and he would be able to work in “real time” with the CFW team.
