Andrey Kolchurin studied business management at Kuban State University of Technology in Krasnodar, Russia before moving to Florida to pursue his dream of learning hospitality business in depth. Choice of the company to work for was pretty obvious, and Andrey started working for Walt Disney World in 2005. He spent nearly a decade working in various positions in the restaurant business, which helped him to successfully pass his Introductory and Certified Sommelier exam back to back in 2014.
One of the proudest moments in his career was working as a restaurant manager and sommelier at one of the iconic Disney restaurants – California Grill. His passion for wine shows thru California Grill’s wine list, which received Award of Excellence by Wine Spectator in 2015.
In 2016 Andrey decided to take his passion to the next level and founded A&E Wines, so he can share his knowledge, and help consumers in Central Florida to find amazing wines without paying astronomic prices.
While not orchestrating dinner service at California Grill or delivering wines to his customers, Andrey is enjoying spending time with his wife Erin and daughter Hailey and of course studying for Advanced Level of Sommelier.
