David Singer

Founder and Managing Director

After 16 years in the wine retail sector, David founded the successful Frenchies Brasserie restaurants in Sydneys Northern Beaches & Noosa QLD. His next logical step was to create Brasserie Wines to provide his valued guests and new customers with specially sourced & curated wines to enjoy at home.

Brasserie Wines sees Marc teaming up again with his old partners in crime David Singer & Wendy McGinnes. The band is back together!

Rowland Hines

Wine Advisor

With two Rock albums under his belt Rowly is a muso by night & a wine advisor by day. He has extensive experience & wine knowledge working specifically in the wine sector for over 6 years. He is particularly good at knowing exactly what wines you will love after a little chat! He provides fantastic customer service & is the perfect addition to the Brasserie Wines Dream Team.

Kristie Holmes

Wine Advisor

There's a saying amongst education professionals that working in that industry often forces you to drink... so when a career change was in order, the obvious choice for Kristie was to move into the industry that had kept her sane through all those years...

Barry Newman

Wine Advisor

After 35 yrs in television and concert production, Barry retired, but his passion for knowledge on ‘wines of the world’ hadn't, and that brought him into the wine industry - eventually becoming a wine advisor. That was some years ago now, and he loves that there’s always plenty to learn…and of course to enjoy! 

Scott Herford

Wine Advisor

Scott is a W.S.E.T accredited vino aficinado. He revels in the enjoyment of good friends, great wine, and matching whatever’s on the menu. He believes that wine, while it can be many things, excels above all as the gift of good taste.

David Robinson

Wine Advisor

David's career has encompassed Sales in the tourism and hospitality industries. He has a great passion for wine & over the past decade he has been actively involved in tasting & selling a wide variety of Australian and European wines to delighted customers. 

Robert Linsley

Wine Advisor

Bobby is our resident aficionado on all things vino-related. It doesn't matter if it's a red from Corsica or a white from Tassie (and everything in between), Bobby has you covered.
