Top Chef host/professional shusher Padma Lakshmi is pimping a wine company's products, and someone from Esquire was invited to get pitched and scored a bunch of randy quotes. Padma called wine spritzers "a real pussy drink" (and she didn't "mean that in a good way"). On her experience with wine: "I've had everything from a '62 Latour to a chenin blanc. I've been lucky enough to be lavished with some extraordinary wines, because somebody close to me was a wine-collector, and they just needed somebody to appreciate it with them. Because, well, you can't drink alone." [Esquire]
Building a successful co-op should also be "rooted in justice, equity, and a holistic view of the world"
