We at Skurnik are endlessly proud of our Brand Management team, who, among seemingly hundreds of other responsibilities, are frequent contributors to the blog and our social media presence (shameless plug: catch us on Facebook, Instagram, & Twitter, if you don’t follow already…).
Whether it’s an incredibly thoughtful yet approachable headline, a prose so good it makes us want to re-work a producer’s entire ‘About’ section, an idea for an insta-story that evolves into a cult following, or photos that simply breathe life into our tastings and partners — we are thrilled to share with you a humble list of our most-loved posts in 2019.
Behold, one year of ideating, asking, listening, gushing, writing, photographing, and WordPress-ing.
