Mark Zillmer

Sales Consultant - Metro

My first recollection of wine goes way back to my grade school years when my aunts insisted I learn how to open a bottle of wine at Holiday get-togethers.  They encouraged me to become a well-rounded individual and opening a bottle of wine without breaking the cork off was one of those attributes I needed to have.

I entered the restaurant world immediately out of college but my time was short lived; starting out with Purple Feet Wines in 2006 trucking through Central Wisconsin and eventually moved to Minnesota a few years later to do the same for a local distributor.  I then moved on to work for a national importer covering the Midwest, but it was in 2015, an opportunity with World Class Wines opened up and knew it would be worth the move to cover some of the top accounts in the Twin Cities while representing some of the finest producers in the wine industry.

Life in general keeps me busy, but nothing beats spending time with my wife Sarah and my two children, Madeline and Graham.
