Online Profile

Chris Forbes was born in Yorkshire, England in 1973. Through his family he was introduced to the business of luxury products in both the textile and gourmet food industries. Educated in England and Paris, Chris graduated from University of Hull in 1995 with a BA (Hons) in Marketing and languages.

After University he went to work in the City of London for very competitive positions in two high profile Investment banks, Singer & Friedlander and then Investec Asset Management, running the marketing departments of both retail and institutional asset classes. From 2004-2006 he developed an absolute return strategy for UK and European charities, creating a business portfolio valued at more than $30 million dollars. He moved to Portugal just over ten years ago with his Portuguese wife and three children to explore a new avenue in life and execute a burning desire to work with wine.

Chris is now responsible for the USA and Irish markets from a sales role and for special marketing projects within the Fladgate Partnership working within the domain of over 82 countries globally.
