Currently celebrating our 86th year as a premier wine retailer, Sokolin was founded in 1934 and received one of the very first liquor licenses issued by New York State after Prohibition was repealed. What began as a family business continues to be family-owned and operated; a company that is very much built on integrity, high quality and excellent service. Each and every client is treated to an exceptional level of service. Behind our fierce commitment to selection and customer service is our team of dedicated and knowledgeable wine professionals who are passionate about what they do. We know wine inside and out, and we are able to marry the needs of our clients with the fine wines in our collection. Our expert guidance has certainly made a name for Sokolin among wine collectors and enthusiasts alike, and we are proud of the reputation it has earned us.
