Why Crushworthy?

I am a professional journalist, but in the wine world, I’m strictly an (admittedly enthusiastic) amateur. I started this blog because I got to taste some terrific wines in San Francisco’s many wine bars and retail stores, and I’d like to spread the word about my favorites. (I now live in the Washington, D.C., area, so I’m looking for retail and wine bar recommendations!) I’m also trying to develop my senses and take a more thoughtful approach to wine tasting, and I’m interested in what others think about the wines I’ve tried — there is much to be learned from differing impressions.

Mostly, though, I love wine and I love to write. Hence: Crushworthy! Hope you find this blog useful. Please join the conversation! And feel free to contact me at crushworthywines@gmail.com.

If you’d like to submit samples (which will be labeled as such at tasting on this blog, on Twitter and anywhere else), please feel free. My address is Elizabeth DeHoff, 6545 West Hoover Place, Littleton, Colorado 80123 (USA). If you’d like to contact me directly and e-mail won’t do, you may call me at 571-332-3272 — but as this is both my personal and business phone, please use this number sparingly. Thanks, and happy drinking!
