About Tim CLARKE
Tim Clarke is one of the pioneers of wine tours around the world. With his wife Lynette Arblaster, he co-founded Arblaster & Clarke Wine Tours, which they ran together for nearly 30 years. At A&C Tim designed the programme and personally led hundreds of tours to wine regions around the world. Under their ownership it became the world’s leading wine tours company.
Tim and Lynette invented the concept of the ‘Champagne Weekend’ and pioneered Wine Tours in many regions around the world. Tim led the first international consumer wine tours to places as diverse as Australia, Sicily, Ribera del Duero, Georgia and Greece.
Having sold Arblaster & Clarke Wine Tours some years ago, Tim has been busy with other projects, including starting a wine project in Greece.
This year Tim was able to return to winetours again and has taken on the role at Kirker Holidays, developing a programme of superb up to the minute tours and wine holidays. Tim also consults and talks on Wine Tourism strategy.
