PRN’s The Wine Crush

A nationally syndicated radio show, The Wine Crush celebrates its 10th anniversary on January 17. This marks a landmark time for the wine and radio industry. Performance Racing Network’s The Wine Crush will celebrate this landmark event with a special two-hour edition. This will air during the first week of February.


This is the nation’s only nationally syndicated radio show focusing entirely on wine and the business and lifestyle it creates. Launched by the Performance Racing Network in 2007, the goal was to simplify wine and to demystify the beverage and the culture surrounding it.

Entertaining and informative, listen in to Wine Talk Radio featuring wine diva host Laura Lawson.
