Testimonials


“It is one thing to drink a glass of wine.  It is another to experience and understand a glass of wine.

Ian helps you think about wines in ways not previously considered.  He speaks of wines in ways that broaden and deepen your experience as you search for the notes and tones he describes. Ian adds curiosity to your palate as much as he adds wines to your collection”

“I have leaned on Ian’s wine expertise for years as an advanced certified sommelier as he sets the industry standard but, for me, what also sets Consulon apart, is his background in hospitality and the tremendous level of service from start to finish. Whether you are looking to purchase wine, store wine or taste wine, Ian has the passion, knowledge and care to make your experience absolute perfection. I give him my highest recommendation.”

“Consulon is a wine company created by renaissance man and a visionary Ian Burrows. Ian has successfully paired his deep rooted wine (and food) knowledge, with his outstanding personal values creating a company that represents a portfolio of small wine producers. A perfect balance of quality & passion!”

“Every conversation & meeting I have had with Ian has been very pleasant. I find Ian to be well prepared with solutions to the questions and challenges we talk about and plan for. Oregon Wine Services and Consulon have very similar ideals, and it is our expectation we will be business partners well into the future.”

“Few experiences that I’ve had in the industry are equal to sitting with Ian and sharing a drop or two from his spectacular portfolio of wines. Ian’s passion and palate have lead him to choose extraordinary wineries to partner with. Each winery’s exceptionally detailed quest for a substance in the glass that represents varietal, place, and winemaker, have elevated them above their competition. Ian’s knowledge of the history of all wine, and certainly his portfolio, allows him to bring service and style into what others just represent as “selling”. Consulon is an absolute class act.”
