    Wow. Always wondered about Crushpad, their biz model and sales pitch. Thanks for the news and links.

      I know so many people who were thisclose to having wine made at Crushpad, particularly since grape prices dropped so much. A couple of good wineries got their start there.

        How much money did people lose on the dream of having their own label, any idea?

          Probably as much as people will lose on the dream of having their own truffle orchard.
