Who we are

IGW Brokers and the 12×75.com blog were founded by Vimal Chatwani in June 2011. Growing up in the hotel industry, Vimal was exposed to wines at all levels and developed a real passion and appreciation for fine wine. During his first job with PriceWaterhouseCoopers in Paris, he took regular trips to the Loire and discovered many hidden gems which only served to ignite his passion for fine wine further.

Having relocated back to London from Paris, Vimal recently got married to a dentist – which has proved to be rather useful, given his regular consumption of fine wine and coffee. His favourite wine (thus far) is the 1996 vintage of Chateau Pontet-Canet. His favourite movie is Casino. When he is not at work, he can usually be found enjoying fine food and wine, blogging or tweeting about wine, or at the very least talking about wine with someone from his extensive network of wine enthusiast acquaintances. His most recent brainchild was the #7wordwinereview, a new craze that is taking over Twitter, and some of the wine industry’s most influential professionals have been getting involved by writing #7wordwinereviews of their own.

Our business is built on passion for wine – fundamentally, we love to talk about wine to people who love wine. This passion has brought us great success so far, and we believe that it will continue to be at the core of everything we do as the business grows.
