About Robert Kowal

A self-identified anhedonic neo-Luddite Misanthrope, Robert Kowal may seem an odd choice as City Winery’s Chicago wine maker.  But passion rather than ambition or convention has always driven him, be it for cinema, wine, or opera.  He came to wine as second career while working as a writer/producer for the PBS cooking series, Hawaii Cooks with Roy Yamaguchi.  Befriended on that show by Master Sommelier Chuck Furuya, Robert’s nascent interest in wine blossomed.
