It’s hard to believe, but the warehouse winery that started in San Francisco’s Potrero Hill in 2004 has crossed the 1 percent mark for U.S. wine production.
Crushpad, now based in Napa Valley and Bordeaux, has churched out 3,247 different wines to date, more than any winery in the history of the biz. From home winemakers to some 150 commercial brands, these are unique wines, not generic bottles slapped with custom labels.
Of the custom crush facility’s 3,000-plus wines, some were projects as small as 25 cases; others were commercial wineries producing 10,000 cases. They specialize in making wines from 50 top vineyards in California and Bordeaux.
Now it’s time to add grapes from the rest of the world!
