Michael Kelly Brown | Vice President of Consumer Sales

Bio:  Born in Astoria, Oregon and growing up in the Pacific Northwest, Michael Brown has a deep love for this part of the world. Prior to joining Sokol Blosser Winery, Michael’s experience in the food, wine and hospitality industry crossed nations. Early in his career, he spent three years in Europe managing restaurants, bars and clubs in the Czech Republic and Scotland. He returned to the United States in February 2000 and became a manager at Jo Bar and Rotisserie in Portland, a family-run business that heightened his interest in the fine dining industry and enriched his knowledge and passion for wine. Following this, Michael became the general manager at Portland’s famous Bluehour Restaurant. During his three years at the restaurant, he continued to grow his wine education through the Court of Master Sommeliers. Today, Michael is the vice president of consumer sales at Sokol Blosser Winery, where he has spent the last seven years successfully growing the winery’s business, including the development and opening of its new award-winning Tasting Room.

Michael currently lives in McMinnville, Oregon with his wife Maria, two daughters (Mirabel and Beatrice) and their two dogs, Dante and Clover.
