The Team
 
William Kolb
President
After 10+ years in Global Sales, Operations and Logistics, Will decided to 
turn a hobby into a career.  During his travels he was eager to try wines of
different countries.  He 
quickly learned that the world offered exquisite wines 
at affordable prices and need not be expensive to be enjoyed.  Opting to 
focus on family-owned wineries
around the world, Will is grateful that each
winery the company represents offers both excellent wine and families
with the personality and hospitality to match.
James Francis Guido
Regional Sales Manager, Manhattan
James has worked in the restaurant industry since 2007.  Even in his first
position as a cashier, James has always understood even the smallest role
matters for the customer experience, or as he puts it, "our customer's needs
must be the first priority."  He has worked with different restaurants around
the country learning various methods to best pair wine with food.  He is

thrilled to help sommeliers find the right wine pairing, or to help his customer 
help the consumer to choose the right bottle for the evening's meal.
James' territory includes the Meatpacking District, Midtown East, the Lower East Side and the Financial District.

Anthony Tordo
Regional Sales Manager
Upper West Side, Brooklyn
Most people might think Anthony's restaurant experience is his greatest
asset in his approach to wine.  However, he will (humbly) tell you it's his
outgoing personality which has helped him most.  Over the last 5 years he
has worked at some of the nation's top restaurants, seeing first-hand how
the proper wine pairing can liven up a meal ... or conversation!  Anthony is 
thrilled with all aspects of his job, from meeting with some of the world's top
sommeliers
to helping the local store owner find the right wine for their
evening rush-hour customers on their way home.
Anthony's territory includes the Upper West Side in Manhattan and Brooklyn.
