Tenth 2019 AAWC-Ann Arbor Tasters Guild Event / AWS
DON'T KNOW MUCH BIOLOGY Wine Importer Dinner
with Joe Kotnik, Founder, WorldWide Cellars

Tuesday October 15, 7:00 pm
at THE FILLMORE, 7954 Ann Arbor St., Dexter

It‛s not often we score the FOUNDER of a wine importing company for our dinner speaker. In 1999, Joe Kotnik started WorldWide Cellars in a suburb of Minneapolis MN. A University of Minnesota graduate with a degree in biology, he soon left that subject behind to start up a marketing and promotions company. Coupling an entrepreneurial spirit with marketing skills and a love for food, wine, and travel, he next ventured into wine importing.

While WorldWide Cellars represents wines from France and Spain, its strongest portfolio encompasses Italian wines and winegrowers. These will be the focus of our October 15 dinner. Here‛s the wine list. Chef Tony and staff will receive a set of samples in the coming weeks to inspire the menu, which will be posted and emailed to you as soon as it‛s available.
