The owners of Crush, Bob Laggini and Janet Besanceney, created Crush Winehouse based on an Italian inspiration. They wanted the bar to be like the many wine bar scattered throughout Italy. European wine bars were the muse, the outstanding Crush was the outcome. The ambiance of the lounge is warm, intimate, and welcoming.
Crush is the only wine bar in Annapolis that offers retail sales of wines with a â€œtry-before-you-buyâ€ chance. How are you going to know if you like your wine or not without trying it? By allowing their customers to sample a wine before purchasing, the staff at Crush know that each guest will go home with a bottle theyâ€™ll enjoy. Each wine selection at the bar is tasted and okayed by Bob and Janet before itâ€™s welcomed into their store.
