What is Consulon?
Consulon is a full-spectrum wine consulting, distribution, sales, and marketing company, serving consumers, restaurateurs, specialist retailers, sommeliers and wineries.
Who Are We?
Consulon is headed by Ian Burrows, a native of Orpington, England, and currently based in Portland, Oregon.
Mr. Burrows has been consumed by hospitality, food, and wine his entire adult life. He has worked as a wine director, a sommelier, a chef, and a restaurant owner, in settings as far afield as Paris, London, San Francisco, and Adelaide.
Since 2007 he has worked as both a consulting and full-time sommelier in Michelin-starred restaurants, earning his Advanced Certificate from the Court of Master Sommeliers in 2009. More recently he served as Wine Director for Dominique Crenn at Atelier Crenn, San Francisco; then drawn to Oregon to assume the role of Director of Sales at Antica Terra.
With Consulon, Ian’s aim is to harness his knowledge, enthusiasm, and experience to help wineries tell the story of their brand and reach their sales objectives, show restaurateurs how to dramatically improve their wine sales and staff fluency, and help collectors navigate the oft-bewildering world of fine wine acquisition, enjoyment, and trading. Consulon reflects his solemn commitment to the authenticity, grace, and transparency that he brings to the job every day.
