Michael Yurch Departs Sherry-Lehmann, Creates Bluest Sky Group


Date: 11/01/13

Michael Yurch, president of the iconic New York retailer Sherry-Lehmann since 1997, has sold his interest in the firm to form a new company. Yurch has been a part of Sherry-Lehmann since 1985.

"After 33 gratifying years in the New York wine market, I want to spend the next phase of my career working closer to the vineyards," says Yurch. "Working with producers has become the part of the wine creation process that I enjoy the most."

The new company, Bluest Sky Group (bsg@bluestskygroup.com), will provide marketing support and strategies to wine and spirit producers from around the world whose goal is an effective presence in the American market.

"The skills and relationships that I have developed over the years will be instrumental in establishing or improving position in an increasingly competitive environment" said Yurch.

For further information, contact Bluest Sky Group at 707-306-2002 or bsg@bluestskygroup.com.
