Regional Sales Manager
At Silver Oak/Twomey since: 2011
Michael Solway, who covers the Midwest and Great Lakes states for Silver Oak and Twomey, was passionate about wine and food from an early age. But after holding several positions in the restaurant industry early in his career he decided to focus on wine, and for the past 21 years he has worked to promote wine from the great winegrowing regions of the world. Having traveled extensively throughout the U.S. and Europe bringing to market wines that reflect those regions' traditions and terroir, Michael has collaborated with talented chefs and sommeliers throughout the world. His philosophy regarding wine is to drink what you love in the company of good food and friends – one of the reasons he loves meeting fellow wine lovers while hosting wine dinners for Silver Oak and Twomey.
Michael practices what he preaches. He lives in Berwyn, IL, one of the oldest suburbs of Chicago, where he grows his own vegetables, fruits and herbs to feed his lifelong interest in cooking “farm-fresh" foods that are best enjoyed with a great bottle of wine.
