Steve Gulden

Brand Director

My journey to World Class Wines began as a broke college student looking to make some beer money in a package store on the outskirts of Fargo, ND.  Little did I know that the doorway to the world of wine would be opened to me by a 75 year old wine enthusiast who worked as a part time wine consultant at the store.  His passion was infectious and his experience voluminous.  He introduced me to the wines of California, and the Mosel, but I was officially bitten by the wine bug after my first bottle of Gevry-Chambertin.  I have spent the last 20 years winding my way through retail stores, restaurants and wholesalers chasing my passion.  In 2011, I found myself on the doorstep of WCW where I was met by a group of kindred spirits.  I am thrilled to work with my talented, dedicated co-workers to build the strongest luxury wine portfolio in the market.  In my free time you can find me trying to keep up with my two boys, Bjorn and Thor, taking in a round of golf, or spending time on a lake.  I also enjoy sharing a bottle of wine with my lovely wife, Kirsten.
