If you’re ready to stain your fingers purple, Crushpad is for you. With Crushpad, you can make a barrel (25 cases, or 300 bottles) of your own wine, or share a barrel with a committed group of friends. Select your grape variety (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Pinot Noir, or less-planted varieties) from well-situated vineyards in California, Oregon, and Washington. From there, grapes are safely sent to Crushpad’s winery in San Francisco. You can fly out for just about every step, from crushing and destemming to barreling, or take the “call me when it’s ready” approach. Either way, Crushpad takes the massive capital investment out of making your own wine and leaves the time investment up to you. Their expert winemaking team ensures that your wine is something you’ll actually want to drink. Crushpad offers a chance to get as close to your wine as you’ll ever come — apart from drinking it.
