About Us

Cru Wine Online considers wine a way of life. It can make a night in more relaxing, a night out more fun, and a friendly gathering more interesting. Whether it’s making your bad days good or your good days better, we want to be part of your daily wine experience.

We’re so passionate about food, wine, and fun that our members can't help but catch our enthusiasm. Sure you’ll get great information, tasty recipes, brilliant wine picks, and stellar pairings. But with all of that, what we really hope you get out of your Cru Wine Online membership is enjoyment.

Cru: Entertain Your Senses.

Nick Barth – Wine Director

Nick earned a degree from the esteemed International Sommelier Guild, and became a Certified Sommelier through the Court of Master Sommeliers - but at heart he’s still just a Midwest kid who loves a good laugh.

Nick’s philosophy is that wine should be fun, not pretentious, and one of his passions is making food and wine information accessible and relevant for everyone, not just the elite few. That’s why Nick combines his skills as an entertainer with his extensive knowledge to bring you the ultimate food and wine experience.
