Director of International Sales
One summer in Singapore, a college intern was introduced to French wines at a local shop. At the end of the summer, he left business school to pursue his new passion for wine.
Michael moved to France to learn the language and build a career, spending 5 years at France’s largest ne/rare wine broker, curating a global rolodex of clients and suppliers. He received a diploma in Wine and Management from Le Cordon Bleu in Paris and an MBA in Luxury Brand Management at INSEEC Paris.
In 2020, Michael connected with Gordon’s to achieve their shared goal: develop the company into one of the best global merchants of rare wine.
Ian Halbert’s 1st 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.
