Skurnik Wines & Spirits Now Exclusive Distributor of Yarden Wines in California


New York, NY (September 13, 2023) – Skurnik Wines & Spirits announces new partnership as exclusive distributor of Yarden Wines in California.

Yarden is the premier label and flagship brand of Golan Heights Winery. With a commitment to quality, sustainability, and innovation, Yarden has earned numerous accolades and a reputation for excellence in winemaking. Their diverse portfolio includes a wide range of wines and styles from their four brands: Mount Hermon, Gilgal, Galil Mountain, and most famously, Yarden. Each brand is a unique study of Israeli terroir and distinctive winemaking philosophy.

“At Golan Heights Winery, our legacy has always been about encapsulating the authentic essence of the Golan Heights terroir. As the leading Israeli winery, our commitment to innovation, authenticity, sustainability and excellence remains unwavering.” said Victor Schoenfeld, Head Winemaker of Golan Heights Winery. “We are excited to extend to California our partnership with Skurnik Wines and Spirits, a company that mirrors our commitment to long-term quality and distinction. We look forward to growing and developing and ensuring that our future is as exceptional as the vintages we’ve crafted for the last 40 years.”

Yarden Wines, which is celebrating its 40th anniversary vintage this year, has been working in partnership with Skurnik for the past four years. This new partnership comes at an opportune time as interest in Israeli wines continues to grow in the United States, driven by their distinctive flavor profiles, historical significance, and the Israeli wine industry’s commitment to sustainability and innovation.

“Since we first tasted the wines of Yarden and Golan Heights Winery, it has been a revelation. The quality of the wines they produce is top of its class, and to do so at a scale that allows the category of Israeli wine to flourish is valuable and exciting to represent. The fact that many of the wines are Kosher is  a bonus, as the wines speak for themselves in any setting.” said David Skurnik, Executive Vice President of Skurnik Wines & Spirits.

The official partnership launched September 1, 2023.
