Chuck BishopLogistics & Purchasing Manager

After attending Eastern Michigan University to be an educator, and a few “right place at the right time” experiences, Chuck has been in the wine business for nearly 10 years now. A transplant from Illinois, he has found a permanent home in Michigan. A place with abundant resources, a great history and an even brighter future.

Starting first in retail, spending the majority of his time in distribution, and now moving into direct importing, Chuck has worked and thrived in practically every stage of the wine trade. As the Logistics and Purchasing Manager for Kindred Vines Import Co, he is tasked with overseeing the behind the scenes import operations. This involves placing orders, coordinating shipping and maintaining relationships with our overseas partners.
