Kevin Russell
Bowler Italian Direct-Import Portfolio Manager
New York Metro

Kevin was hand-harvested in Philadelphia, fermented in South Jersey, and aged between Miami, Italy, and New York. Barrel samplings over the years have seen him as a multi-woodwind player and composer (Bachelor of Music, University of Miami), a bread baker, a member of a viticulture crew in New Zealand, a 2010 Census supervisor, and one of the top sales reps at The Vine Collective, where he also had a hand in building the Italian portfolio.  He is thrilled to be part of the team at David Bowler Wine, as both the Portfolio Manager for those Italian labels that we import directly, and as a sales rep in Manhattan and Brooklyn.

He believes that a bottle of wine, like an album of music, should be a snapshot of its place, time, and the people who made it.  He is constantly intrigued by how much, through a glass of fermented grape juice, can be learned about culture, language, and each other.

He lives in Tarrytown with his wonderful wife, their small boys, and some plants.
