praise since the first vintage under his micro-négociant label. After developing a deep love for wine while pursuing a corporate career, Olivier decided to study oenology in Beaune. He worked alongside Henri Jayer in 2002 during a harvest at Domaine Rouget and went on to establish a domaine in Roussillon where he did everything himself. In 2007, he returned to his true love, Burgundy. While officially considered a négociant, Olivier and his team manage the vineyard work for all but one of the plots he sources from and has since purchased 2 of these plots.

MEET OUR FOUNDER

Simon Tam

Founder & Auctioneer
Born in Hong Kong and growing up in Australia, with vineyards literally on his doorstep, Simon Tam has been developing and nurturing wine lovers in Asia for the last three decades. Always ahead of his time, Simon opened the first wine schools in Hong Kong, Shanghai and Macao in 1993. He was the author of the first ever “Chinese Food & Wine Pairing” column in South China Morning Post, where he elaborated on the art of pairing day-to-day family dishes with some of the most coveted wines in the world. The iconic ‘Mapo Tofu with JJ Prum Spatlese Riesling’ pairing was a particular fan favourite! He also pioneered the food pairing app “Flavour Colours”, based on changing of the seasons and finding the right wine pairings, particularly for Chinese dishes. Simon has always been passionate about bringing wine lovers from different cultures together, focusing on bringing ‘the delicious West to the thirsty East’. He was voted “Best Wine Consultant” by the UK’s Wine Business International magazine for his consultancy work with many winemaker associations around the world. Simon has judged in more than 150 wine competitions worldwide. He is the co-founding director of Cathay Pacific Hong Kong International Wine and Spirits Competition, and was also founding chairman of the Greater China Wine Critics Association. He spent a decade as Christie’s Asia Pacific Head of Wine, joining as the first Chinese Head of Wine in the Company’s 250-year history. Itching to break away from tradition and de-mystify the fine and rare wine industry, Simon founded Aeos Auctions early in 2021. His mission is to share his passion with wine lovers from all walks of life. “At Aeos Auctions, we simply share good taste” Simon notes.

How Do I Bid?

What happens once I’ve placed a bid? You can choose to bid at the current price or place a maximum bid on a lot. For maximum bids, our system will automatically increase your bid when someone bids against you, up to your maximum. The system is designed to ensure you win the lot at the lowest price possible, so you’re in good hands! For both kinds of bids, you’ll be notified by email or push notification from the app when someone bids above you and you can go back to increase your bid before the end of the sale.
