about us


Welcome to Crush!

Crush was born out of a passion for wine. Native New Yorkers Drew Nieporent and Robert Schagrin were childhood friends who shared a love of food, wine and collectibles. Together, they set out to create a store that was fresh in its design, scope and selection.

Crush first opened its doors in the spring of 2005. Over a decade later, we remain committed to finding amazing wine wherever it may be.

We carry a diverse range of wine and spirits, but the common thread is an emphasis on quality, craft and limited-production. Our wine selection reflects the regions we are most passionate about - Champagne, Burgundy, Piedmont, Beaujolais, Germany, Austria, Loire, Northern Rhône, Tuscany and Jura, to name a few - but you’ll find that our shelves are stocked with bottles from every corner of the world.

Our goal is to help our customers discover wines they love. Our team is enthusiastic, knowledgeable and experienced at finding wines for every occasion, preference and price point. We value our relationships with our customers, and remain dedicated to providing the best possible experience for each and every one.

Our unique Fine & Rare department is devoted to helping you select that special gift, or carefully build your cellar. Whether you’re searching for a particular bottle or looking to start your collection, our team of specialists will work with you every step of the way. We handle corporate gifts of all sizes and budgets, and offer shipping throughout the U.S. and to select international countries.

Our store is located in Midtown Manhattan, and we are here to serve you 7 days a week. If you’re interested in learning more about wine or receiving early access to special offers and discounts, we encourage you to sign up for our newsletter.

Welcome to Crush. We look forward to sharing our exciting range of wine and spirits with you.
