Who We Are

Mark Strelcheck

Founder and Owner
Growing up in the Upper Pennisula of Michigan, Mark graduated with a business degree from Central Michigan University with a concentration in hospitality resort management. He started his career in the food & beverage industry with Hyatt Hotels & Resorts as a F&B Director. This career took him from downtown Chicago to quiet North Lake Tahoe and finally across from the Capitol in Sacramento.
He was submerged in the wine market from day one and experienced many terrific opportunities to learn more about wine from famed winemakers as well as buy, sell and pair wines for specific menus.

After meeting his future wife, who lived in Portland, Mark found himself moving to the City of Roses in 2005. He left the hotel business and dove into a new world of restaurant supply brokerage and design. This gave him exposure to the unique restaurant culture of this great city as well as connecting him to some of the most admired restaurateurs in Portland.

Having the relationships now in Portland and substantial wine knowledge, Mark was able to tie the two together to create Cask Wine Brokers in 2009, an independent, family owned brokerage that caters to boutique, micro-produced family owned vineyards.

The original design was to focus only on Oregon wine in bottles, however, over a short period of time it had evolved to importing wines from small case producers in Italy & South America as well as our to tremendous sustainable approach to wines by the glass – Keg Wine!

Mark never tires of meeting new wine drinkers or wine makers. His passion to deliver wines from outstanding producers to the public makes the wine world exciting to him. Just catch him with a wine glass in his hand some day and you will find out for yourself!
