So what IS The Crush?
Have you ever wished that in those unfortunate moments of the day when drinking a glass of wine is not socially acceptable (ex: on the train to work, taking out the rubbish, or going for your morning jog), you could instead learn many interesting and exciting facts about wine while also being entertained by two sprightly American gals?
Well, fret no longer. Let me introduce you to The Crush.
It’s wine talk. Unfiltered. It’s what those in the know call a podcast, which basically means an online talk radio show. And it’s co-hosted by yours truly. Each week I chat with my best friend Whitney, a sommelier living in Los Angeles, about all things vinous; and some things not so vinous like cocktails, food and which milk is best for Oreo dunking. You know, the important things in life. What we do NOT talk about are boring tasting notes, vintages, and soil compositions. Listening to The Crush is a fabulous way to distract you from the day’s most mundane activities while also learning some golden nuggets of wine info. We’ll have you sounding like a wine geek in no time.
