Crush Wine Company

An undulating, 73-foot-long wall of more than 3,500 wine bottles—displayed horizontally and illuminated from behind—serves as the focal point of this celebrated midtown wine shop. Restaurateur Drew Nieporent (owner of Nobu and Montrachet) runs the store along with developer Josh Guberman and experienced wine collector Robert Schagrin. The wines and spirits are handpicked from across the globe, although most are small-batch bottles from independent producers. High-end, hard-to-find wines are housed in a temperature-controlled glass room called “the cube,” while free tastings are held in an adjacent room, separated from the store by a wall resembling a wine barrel.
