In July 2019, we announced our acquisition of Vintner Select, a Cincinnati, Ohio-based fine wine distributor.
With this acquisition, we have increased our direct wholesale distribution network to eight states, adding Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana to our existing stable of New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, and California.
Established in 1989 by Gordon and Doris Hullar, Vintner Select has a long and successful history of bringing quality wine to their home state of Ohio, as well as to neighboring states Kentucky and Indiana. The company is well respected and has an extensive portfolio of top wine estates. In addition to the entire Skurnik portfolio of course, the company represents a venerable list of importers such as Marc de Grazia, Indigenous Selections, Rosenthal Wine Merchant, Terry Theise, Alain Junguenet, and Grapes of Spain. In addition to the company’s import book, we offer a bevy of top USA wineries such as Harlan, Corison, and Colgin– as well as many others.
Skurnik Wines Vintner Select, as the new company is now known, has a temperature and humidity-controlled warehouse, and a fleet of trucks delivering throughout all three states on a regular basis.

“Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana are excellent wine markets,” says Harmon Skurnik, President. “We’re thrilled to be able to offer suppliers excellent distribution options on the east coast, west coast, and now the Midwest as well.”
