Crush – verb, noun, adjective or expletive?

Vin-cab-u-lary

Crush – /krəSH/

In wine circles, Crush is most often used as a verb regarding the processing of fruit.

It can also be used as a noun, “I worked 2010 Crush at Chatham Vineyards” and as an adjective “I will be down on the crush pad for the next couple of hours”

Last year, Virginia Tourism turned the word into a double meaning catch line “Virginia Wine –Discover Your Local Crush”.

Regardless of your use of the word Harvest is upon us with some wineries brining in early ripening grapes last weekend.  “Crush” will continue across the State until roughly the first week of November.
