The Ask Dr. Renee Show with Chrishon Lampley
Chrishon Lampley is a vintner, radio personality, creator and partner of the lifestyle wine brand Love Cork Screw that launched 6 varietals in the 4th quarter of 2013. Since its inception, the LCS brand has acquired over 45 locations including Mariano’s, Binny’s (recently adding WholeFoods) and is growing rapidly. Much of the expansion has been attributed to being in the industry for over 14 years, which has given her the opportunity to develop a keen awareness of what people enjoy and what the market is missing. A large portion of this knowledge was garnered from the several years she owned a popular art lounge in Chicago’s South Loop neighborhood.
One close relationship that was fostered became a business partner and co-host on her Internet radio show aptly titled Love Cork Screw. The radio program is based loosely on her popular blog and connects to thousands of listeners weekly as they engage in a myriad of topics relating to love, life, and relationships. She has expanded her brand to include wine scented candles and a premium cigar line named “Lampley” cigars.
Being in the public eye bestows Chrishon with much attention and influence that she uses to mentor young women and budding entrepreneurs whom can benefit from her pitfalls and successes. She gives her time and resources greatly to nonprofit organizations and is an avid member and supporter of the Chicago Urban League and Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.
