Wine Director

Alan Collins

wine director Alan Collins

Alan is a native Ann Arborite - in fact he actually grew up across the street from Paesano. He has worked in the wine, beer and, food industry since 2005, first as a wine buyer at Whole Foods in Ann Arbor, then as a dining room manager at Grange Kitchen & Bar, also in Ann Arbor, where he also penned their wine and beer list.

Alan met and became friends with former Wine Director, Kenny Frost and upon hearing that Kenny was moving to New York, he inquired about the soon to be vacant position. After several thoughtful conversations with owner Mike Roddy, Alan joined the Paesano family in September of 2013.

Collins will continue to host the popular Weekly Wednesday Wine Tastings which feature a local wine rep each week with 5 Italian wines and appetizers. He will also provide his insight at winemaker dinners and such annual events as the Holiday Wine Show and Carnevale.

“Mike and Bridget Roddy have built a wonderfully successful business that is a staple in our community,” says Collins. “I look forward to bringing my personality and passion to the wine program at Paesano, and sharing my enthusiasm for great wine with all of our guests.”
