The Team



 

      Ian Halbert

Wine Director & Burgundy Specialist
ihalbert@gordonswine.com

Ian Halbert’s first career was in academia, teaching Latin & Ancient Greek at Boston College and editing a scholarly journal at Boston University. Fascinated by food and wine, it was through BU's Elizabeth Bishop wine program that his keen interest blossomed into full ambition and then a new career at Gordon’s. Since 2011 Ian has captained New England's best Burgundy program, lauded by serious collectors, the newly initiated, and all in between.



          


Tobin Finegold
California, Italy, Spain & Champagne
tfinegold@gordonswine.com

Tobin Finegold set her heart on a career in wine after tasting a heart-stopping bottle of 1982 Penfold's Grange during her last year of law school. After 13 years in the wine world — as a Sommelier, Wine Director, and most recently working for Robert Parker and The Wine Advocate — Tobin is the newest Wine Buyer on the Gordon’s block. From superb steals to highly allocated collectibles, she works with the very best wines from California, Italy, Spain and Champagne.


      


Tim Sellon
Riesling/German Wine Buyer
tsellon@gordonswine.com

A runaway from the major motion picture industry in Hollywood, Tim Sellon followed his heart and took shelter in the world of wine. A passionate advocate of the underdog, Tim champions overlooked areas that deserve more attention and love, most particularly Germany. In fact, if he were a wine himself, he would be a bottle of perfectly aged Spätlese: most likely from the Saar, produced by someone with the last name of Müller. But then again, who wouldn’t?



          


Richard Malloy
Fine Wine Specialist at Gordon's Boston
rich@gordonswine.com

Richard Malloy practiced law in Boston for nearly 20 years, during which time a nascent interest in the culinary arts became an overall obsession with the world of wine until every spare moment was devoted to all things vinous. So he walked out of the law office and into the role of Wine Manager at Gordon's Boston where his unswerving devotion to the vine is no longer a distraction but a blessed passion.


      


Guy Davies
Bordeaux Specialist
gdavies@gordonswine.com

Guy comes to us from England, where his family was very keen on wine. Many summer vacations were spent in the winegrowing regions of France. After law school, Guy followed his passion for wine and, after working in a few other shops, landed for 4 years at the legendary wine merchant Berry, Bros. & Rudd, managing the internal sales team of Wine Advisors. For those of you unfamiliar with Berry Bros., this London establishment is easily the world’s leading wine retailer, with a legacy and history stretching back 300 years, including provisioning the Royal Cellars.
