Crunchy Red Fruit is the super-chill wine club we all need: It’s curated by a master sommelier, has selections from wineries that are small and unique, sends six bottles every two months, and you pay per shipment with no commitment.
Jackson Rohrbaugh, a 10-year veteran of Canlis and master sommelier, is the founder and wine whisperer behind the selections. The phrase “crunchy red fruit,” made popular by writers, had caught his eye during his early years of wine education. It refers to the fresh brightness of particular red wines, but it resonated with Rohrbaugh as a joyful expression and genuine love of wine.
“Wines that stay lively on your palate and don’t take themselves too seriously,” he said, of the selection available through Crunchy Red Fruit. Along with the wines, the club includes recipes; pairing recommendations; and stories about, and beyond, the bottle. $189 per shipment; visit the website for details: www.crunchyredfruit.com.
