Welcome to the Crush Pad!

Thanks for stopping by… 
A bit about me –  I am a ISG Certified Level III Sommelier and former director of one of Oregon’s most prestigious Pinot Noir houses, Archery Summit, and member to the board of directors of Pine Ridge Winery of Napa, California.  I have been in Minnesota for 2 years now; consulting to some of the top restaurants in Minneapolis and St. Paul by day, teaching wine classes, organizing tastings around town, and being involved in numerous private, corporate, and fundraising events at night.
In the weeks to come I will be updating this blog with wine reviews, rants and raves, as well as local events, and happenings around the Twin Cities.
check back soon…
cheers, Leslee

  1. WOW, What a way to celebrate my wife’s 60th Birthday. I held a surprise party for my wife with 12 other guest. Leslee was great. Leslee introduced the group to 5 different kinds of wine and 3 types of cheeses, from different parts of the world.
    Leslee is serious about her profession, and at the same time
    made it interesting and fun with her knowledge and presentation for us. Many positive comments came from the group and all are looking forward to having her at another party.
    THANKS , Leslee for a great evening.
