Pour Yourself a (Jancis) Glass & Enjoy Our Top Posts of 2022

WHATTA YEAR.

(No seriously, WHATTA YEAR!)


We at Skurnik are endlessly proud of our Portfolio Management team, who, among seemingly hundreds of other responsibilities, are frequent contributors to the blog and our social media presence (shameless plug: follow us on Instagram if you don’t 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 post that evolves into a cult series, 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 2022.

Behold, one year of ideating, asking, listening, gushing, writing, photographing, and WordPress-ing.

Very often, also, herding cats.
