Andrea Kish became interested in wine during her early career with IBM. Traveling extensively for business to California, France, and other wine hot spots, she began making friends and tasting wine. When her career took her back to NY, she started a chapter of “Les Amis Du Vin” in Westchester, and at one of her tasting events met Tony Russo, a wine retailer. Together they first formed a business relationship, which eventually blossomed into a personal relationship and into marriage and the start of Aries Wine & Spirits. After a 30 year career at IBM, Andrea now helps Tony with wine dinners and events, wine classes and lectures, wine buying, and trips to wine areas. Andrea is a Cornell Master Gardner, a gourmet cook, she teaches classes at Westchester Community College, Scarsdale Adult Education school, and has taken wine making courses at U.C.DAVIS school of oenology in California. To quote Andrea: “A day without wine is like a day without sunshine.”
