In this week's episode of "Someone You Need To Know", Rashanah chat's with entrepreneur and Chicagoan Chrishon Lampley who shares her experience of turning losses into wins by founding Love Cork Screw Wines and how she was able to pivot during COVID-19 in 2020 and now in 2021 expanding her wine brand nationally. Many businesses and specifically Black-owned businesses were forced to close their doors after the economic fall out from COVID-19, Chrishon did the complete opposite and she shares with Rashanah how she kept moving her businesses forward.

Can you mix different color wines together? How do you pair wine with your food? Can you put ice in wine? How long should you keep wine after opening? What exactly is vegan wine? Chrishon breaks down the need to know information about indulging in wines and the wine industry itself!

 Chrishon Lampley is a negociant, wine enthusiast, and founder of LCS Entertainment, LLC that features Love Cork Screw wines.

Since its inception, the LCS brand has acquired over 300 locations including, Target, Mariano's, Binny's, Whole Foods, World Market, Walmart, and more.
