Michael Skurnik Wines is an importer and distributor of fine wines based in Syosset, New York. We taste, select and offer for sale (to the trade only) an excellent portfolio of wines from around the world. The company began with just a handful of relatively unknown estates in 1987 and has since grown to represent over 450 estates, from the traditional to the cutting edge.
The goal of Skurnik Wines is to search the globe and assemble the finest portfolio of estate-bottled wines available at all price points. Wines selected to be included in the Skurnik Wines portfolio must represent the highest quality and meet our exacting standards as regards character and winemaking. We are very proactive in searching out QUALITY FIRST and will do everything in out power to insure that the wines we taste make it INTO THE BOTTLE. Over the past 16 years, we have developed an excellent reputation and it is our goal to insure that if a wine says “Imported by Skurnik Wines” it is as close to a guarantee of quality as possible.
We don’t have a “house palate” per se but we do favor and select those wines that express their terroir through limited yields and non-interventionist techniques. The wines must also exhibit balance and finesse. We like many wines that are barrel-fermented; however we avoid producers who overwhelm their fruit with toasty new oak barrels just because it’s the fashion. We never forget that fine wine comes from exceptional GRAPES and the ripe fruit flavors must always shine through loud and clear.
