  • Meet The Curator Melissa Winkler: 

    I graduated from the State University of New York at Potsdam where I studied art.  After graduating, I made the decision to turn my passion for wine into my life’s work.  I studied wine making at the Niagara Falls Culinary Institute and continued on to complete Level 3 course study at the Wine & Spirit Educational Trust (WSET) in London, England.  In 2014, I became a Certified Sommelier with the Court of Master Sommeliers in Toronto, Canada.  I’ve spent an extensive amount of time traveling to visit vintners, growers and cellars in regions of Champagne, Bordeaux, Burgundy, Piedmont and Tuscany to learn as much as possible about these phenomenal wine growing regions.

    Our store and cellar couldn’t possibly be located in a more beautiful location; a location that is also close to my heart.  Winkler & Samuels is located in the historic former factory at 500 Seneca Street, which extends my family’s long history in the neighborhood. My family previously owned and operated F.X. Winkler and Sons, Buffalo’s oldest grocery store, which stood right down the street for 111 years.

    After many years of immersing myself in the world of wine, I’m excited to share my knowledge, enthusiasm and love of wine and viticulture with Western New Yorkers, and to provide them with a place where they can find hand-selected wines that are perfect for every occasion.
