Michael Skurnik Joins Wine Spectator’s James Molesworth for an Instagram Live Interview

Tariff Talk with Michael Skurnik & David Hinkle

Michael and James Molesworth went live on Instagram to talk about the current trends we’re seeing among retailers, the importance of supporting the hospitality industry during this pandemic, and our recently-announced Sales Drive – developed to provide aid to unemployed restaurant workers.


We are collecting contributions from the wineries listed here on every case we sell in NY/NJ/CT for the month of April, between $5 and $50 per case depending on the item.

We will also be contributing $5 per case on our top-selling brand, The Pinot Project. All funds raised will be donated, with half going to ROAR and the other half going to United Sommeliers Foundation.

You can take comfort in ordering many wines you already know and love to benefit those industry members in need during this difficult time.


Founded by a coalition of independent restaurateurs and hospitality groups, ROAR is committed to the New York hospitality community and speaking with one voice to fight for their employees  – and to make sure that they have an industry to come back to.

Simply put, they are reminding us that independent restaurants are.
