Born and raised in Queens, NY, Kenny took some left turns before happily landing in the wine industry. A graduate of the Air Force Academy & Florida State University business school, a military assignment in northern Italy introduced him to the mysteries of wine. A few restless stints in the military and government later, he found himself starting over as the manager of a wine & spirits shop in Knoxville. From there he spent over a half-decade at Green’s as their wine buyer, before joining the Grapes & Grains family as the wine director for their new Chamblee location. A WSET IV Diploma holder & fan of all the NY teams that don’t win, Kenny resides in Adair Park with his wife, four children, and two slightly overweight cats.
