Tony Cooper

Co-founder and director of Cape London

Tony Cooper was a partner at Deloitte, heading the telecoms practice in the UK, until a severe brain injury led to life-saving surgery.

With a new lease of life after recovering, the father of two took early retirement to spend some time travelling the world.

On his return, he set up online wine retailer Cape London with life-long friend Andy Leach, who had sold his publishing agency, Mediamark Ltd and had already established a love for South Africa and its vineyards himself.

Sourcing many wines and wine producers with inspirational and unique stories behind them, they launched the company in November 2014.
