Sinisa was very shocked to discover Aaron Brown's past yesterday
In 2014 Tim Brown or Timmer Brown set up Catalunya Wine – the 'Aaron' had conveniently gone AWOL.....too easily found on Google, especially if you add Timmer?
a) The Paul Kimmage Fund
Of course Aaron Timmer Brown has good reason to shorten his name to Tim Brown and to be reticent – almost reclusive. He has a Massachusetts Superior Court judgment against him for wrongfully appropriating the Paul Kimmage Fund. On 27th February 2015 he was ordered to pay a total of $84,925.22 including costs. Since then, at a rate of 12% interest, this judgement has increased to a total sum of a little over $100,000 and will continue to increase at a rate of $27.92 a day.
The Paul Kimmage Fund was set up in 2012 and some 30,000 people donated around $92,000. Of this some $65,000 is unaccounted for and this led to the court case in Massachusetts and the judgment against Aaron Timmer Brown.
Kimmage hit for damages, while Timmer Brown enjoys good life in Catalonia
On 27th May 2016 Paul Kimmage was fined 12,000 Swiss Francs plus costs by a Swiss Court, who found that he had libelled Hein Verbruggen, who was the only one of the original claimants in the libel case to continue the action. Shane Stokes reported in The Irish Times that Kimmage had been 'Left vulnerable after a legal fund to support him was stolen'.
b) Maintenance (child support/alimony) to Jennifer Brown in Nova Scotia, Canada

Payer: Brown, Aaron
c) Video – Grapes of Catalunya
I trust the four wineries involved thought a few video clips was money well spent.....
The Wine.Pop app is the latest wine venture to involve Tim Brown (aka Aaron Timmer Brown) where he is marketing director. This app started life as ArteBacchus developed by Tomas Volts.
Wine.Pop has signed up a number of Ambassadors to persuade producers/wineries to sign up to the Wine.Pop app. In return they are promised
Questions to Aaron Timmer Brown:
Yesterday I sent a series of questions (see separate post) to Brown. This was his response – sent 5.11.16 4.31 pm:
Thank you for your email. I will say your email contains inaccurate and false information.
I look forward to receiving his more detailed response, which I will post on this blog.
I expect that I will be posting further on Aaron Timmer Brown and Wine.Pop and trust that Mr Brown's many friends and admirers will appreciate being informed of his latest ventures.
