A Wealth of Wine and Talent
Skurnik Wines & Spirits Gave Many Their Start in the Business

By Lettie Teague (posted to the Wall Street Journal on 1/29)

A good company attracts talented people; a great one can help launch their careers.

Skurnik Wines & Spirits, an importer and distributor, has proved an effective launchpad for some of the most talented salespeople in the New York area, many of whom went on to found companies of their own.

A few Skurnik alumni with their own wine companies include David Bowler (David Bowler Wine) Doug Polaner (Polaner Selections) and Eric Clemons (Coeur Wine Co.).

Skurnik Wines & Spirits isn’t just an incubator of sales talent but a source of some of the greatest wines in the world. Skurnik selections include those from top California estates such as Bryant Family Vineyards, Peter Michael Winery and Corison Estates, as well as sought-after producers from Austria, Germany, Italy, Spain and France—not to mention New Zealand, Australia and Chile—and beyond.

Skurnik Wines & Spirits is now expanding its selection of Greek wines, according to Harmon Skurnik, who is president of the company, and is the younger brother of Chief Executive Michael Skurnik, who founded the company in 1987. Harmon Skurnik joined two years later.

2015 ROSÉ DIRECT IMPORT OFFERING

Hell has not frozen over, it’s just really cold outside. These frigid temps won’t last forever and when you finally do thaw out, you’re going to want a refreshing and festive beverage. Rosé is no longer a niche category. We sell and drink it all year round. Some of them even have spectacular aging capabilities (Pibarnon magnums, I’m looking at you). We’ve been an enthusiastic proponent of the category for a while now and we’re so glad to see it embraced. With all of this enthusiasm it’s become very difficult for us to maintain a steady supply; that’s why we ask you to pre-order these wines. This way we can guarantee you’ll get what you need when you need it. We’re only bringing in what you order, no more. So this is your one shot to purchase these wines for the entire Rosé season. Please plan accordingly.
