    Hi Gary,

    Amazing episode. Huge fan of WLTV. I absorb over 25 different wine blogs/podcasts and I can honestly say that WLTV is the best of the bunch right now.

    My question is this: Living in Manhattan we have many wonderful restaurant options available to us. I have a decent 100+ bottle cellar in our apartment and I sometime want to bring a very nice bottle to a restaurant to enjoy with the meal. I know all the basic rules about only bringing a bottle that is not on the restaurants list etc. but even with that being said, I find that when I call to make a reservation, many restaurants are less than thrilled to hear we will be bringing wine.

    What is your overall opinion of BYO to a restaurant. What policies do you follow?

    As a sidenote, my wife and I have two small children, so “quite dinners at home” are often impossible. That is the main reason I like to bring the bottles to the restaurant. The nights we can arrange babysitting and go out for dinner, I know we can enjoy the bottle over a quite peaceful dinner.

    I’d love to hear your thoughts on this.

    Keep up the great work!

    Yea, I didn’t think it had anything to do with WLTV….sucks though for people tring to access/post from work. I e-mailed last night and the contest ends today at 3pm, so that was the only place most had a chnace to post from.

    everyone take it easy….I understand you guys are upset…but it is a contest, and the person who had the most comments wins, period. If I have the most then I win, fair and square…if I don’t then I lose and I pay for shipping, thats it. I am not going to cry about it.

    It’s amazing that the only retailor around here that has the 05 shotfire around here sells it for $29.95 while selling the 06 for 19.95. Complete BS. I’ve also got to say that it seems time has not done this wine well. It’s damn hot on the end.
