Steven Nosnik: Vice President & Director of Sales/Owner
If you were to visit a family gathering of the Nosnik clan, you would notice that wine plays an important role, both as a beverage and a topic of conversation. Growing up, Stevens' father cultivated his love of wine, and created a sense of curiosity about the tactile sensations and emotions that each glass of wine presented, and how varied these sensations can be. But drinking wine and selling wine are two very different things, and the challenge at Kinson for Steven, has been how to take the joy of drinking and marry it to the art of commerce. To achieve this, he says, "We are transparent. I show my customers my cost and their cost. No secrets. The smaller margins allow us to give the end users an awesome bottle of wine that is worth every penny, and allows our retailers to make a little more money, which makes everyone happier".
Colin Rudy: Sales Manager
The newest member of the Kinson family Colin is the guy who always takes the road less traveled. Which is why he fits in so well at Kinson. He sees the "bold but basic willingness to do things differently from everyone else in the business" as an asset, and the impetus necessary to uproot and move from Texas to New York to continue his wine journey. Since the age of 20, he has been exploring the relationship between food & wine, which led him to begin working in the world of fine dining, which segued into wine sales specifically. Lucky for Kinson, his love affair with the grape, his knowledge and enthusiasm, and his ability to pull off the whole "ruggedly handsome lumberjack" look are a combo platter that is sure to translate into sales.
