The Skurnik Tasting Series “A Guided Tour” lets you travel the world through wine.
We're halfway through the Skurnik Series! Our Italy and Spain/Portugal tastings were a bit hit. Our next tasting is April 9th from 6—7pm and we'll be traveling to France with Skurnik Portfolio Managers David Hinkle and Ilya Smollesky.
Skurnik's Portfolio Managers travel to the wineries, taste the wines with the winemakers and select them for the US market.
Each tasting features 4 bottles. Cost to join the tasting is free, just purchase a minimum of one bottle to receive a link to join in! Links will be e-mailed out prior to the tasting.

March 12th -Mark Fornatale, Italy March 26th -Max Working, Spain/Portugal April 9th -David Hinkle & Ilya Smollesky, France April 23rd-Gabe Clary, Germany/Austria
Here are some highlights from our last tasting where we toured Spain and Portugal!
Join in on April 9th to hang out with Skurnik Portfolio Managers David Hinkle, Ilya Smollesky and our very own Shelley Taxel as they explore the wines of France.

Matthiasson Vineyards | Orange Wine
100% Ribolla Gialla
Napa Valley, California
This is one of Elan's favorite wines! Super rare in these parts. This wine tastes like hazelnuts, baking spices, Meyer lemon curd, Bartlett pear, but most of all it has a stony minerality that is incredibly distinctive.
Cassagne Et Vitalles | Les Combarels
60% Chardonnay, 30% Grenache Blanc, 10% Viognier
Aged for a very short time in neutral oak to balance the fresh acidity and body. The nose is floral and fruity, with aromas of peach, apricot, citrus, wildflowers and an unexpected hint of anise. The wine has fresh orange blossom along with peach and minerality on the palate.
Cidergeist | Bloom Cider with Pear and Elderflower
I haven't had a cider in a long time, and I'm glad this is the one I chose to try! This is on the dryer side as far as Rhinegeist ciders go and the pear and elderflower flavors are very well balanced, it's not too overwhelming in one direction. A super pleasant drink on a warm Spring evening.
