Great, great show. For those of us who have never decanted wine this is a real eye-opener. But the best thing about it is our introduction to GV’s easy cap-removal play. No more messing about – just yank the thing right off. I’ve been doing it with every bottle, ever since.

    Hi Gary Vaynerchuck, i like your show so much. I have a wine question. I have a large bottle full of wine,i remove the cork and put it standing like a soldier on top the bottle,if you shake, you loose the cork. You are allow to manipulate the cork,, smell it turn it around,when the time come no more holding the cork,I want to see you pouring the wine in a glass without removing the cork.Ed

    Save your liver from alcohol abuse, stay way from tomatoes paste,the food doesn’t have to be red,red,in order to be good.Stay way from fry food . Tomatoes paste, and smoking,and fry food may bring psoriasis,a swell of the skin,hard crust,scale over the chest,elbow,knees if this is the case, spend lots of time to the beach in the water,drag your body on the bottom,you may need type of cream with silver. Keep your sheet clean,change often, at night when you go in bed,apply cream, cover it with clear soft plastic. Remember,you must stop smoking,do not get close to any food with tomatoes paste,avoid food fry.Edoardo

    I have a case, less one bottle of 1984 Mondavi reserve cabernet. When I opened the first bottle, which had leaked through the cork, there was a lot of sediment. I would like to consider decanting and re-corking the other bottles, if you think the wine’s age is okay for saving, and worth decanting/re-corking.

    Hi Gary, is it enough to open a bottle, re-cork it and let it sit for a day? If you decant it, should you swirl it occasionally? What’s the right way to “air” a wine? Thanks.

    He takes a sip of wine, spits it in the bucket and then tells how good it was. Shame on you Gary.

    I have rowdy biker friends with better drinking manners.
