Meet The Team

Caroline Robertson

Publisher/Sales Director

Caroline has worked in the magazine industry for 11 years with our sister magazines in the USA. She has a deliberate goal of doing what's right for her clients before attempting to earn money for the magazine. She is moved by enthusiasm for her work, her love for the magazines, and her confidence in the power of an advertisement in the magazines to help clients reach their business goals. Caroline wouldn't sell any client an advertisement unless she confidently believed that it was in the client's interest.

By working to this ethos over the years has established solid relationships with ongoing clients in our USA Magazines who trust and enjoy working with Caroline very much, so much so when she moved back to Scotland in December 2015 her clients requested her to continue working with them despite the time difference and the distance.

He currently holds the Wine and Spirits Education Trust (WSET) level 2 and level 3 qualifications. He is currently studying for the WSET diploma which is their flagship two year course. He hasn't made his mind up whether he wants to then study for the Master of Wine (MW) qualification of which there are only 380 in the world today. His mission is to encourage us all to try a new wine style wherever possible. 'Life is too short for just Sauvignon Blanc'.
