    Good show Gary!

    I think riesling is the best combination with turkey. But the name is Möchhof Ã?rziger…=Moechhof Uerziger…
    And Auslese is [OWS-lay-zuhe].

    Thanks and greetings from the old Europe. 😉

    That was pretty good Gary. A little traditional though. I found another great Thanksgiving pairings episode on another show called What Lukka Likes. Check it out http://www.winecountrytv.org/whatlukkalikes/. Have a great thanksgiving Gary!

    I understood from your Thanksgiving video that there would be free shipping on the featured wines.
    I tried ordering 6 btls of the 2004 Gravity Hills Tumbling Tractor Zin and it kept showing $18.00 shipping.
    What’s up with that?

    Also, could not agree more with the 1995 Felsina… had a bottle of the 1993 the other evening – excellent.
    I know Dr. Guiseppe Mazzocolin well. He is a great guy, former Philosophy professor and a superb winemaker.
    If he is ever in NYC you should try to have him on TV.

    Gary,
    This was like Brian Wilson’s Good Vibrations all around. Really gets one in the mood for T-Day. Am headed to WL later today so I will check out the Tumbling Tractor. Thanks for another great show, and made extra special with the home surroundings. Cheers, C

    Happy holidays G and thanks for the show. It has kept me entertained and will continue to do so. White Zin was too awesome for words (previous episode). Many years ago I was friends with Alex Morgan who, bless his soul, has passed on. He was one of the great sales people who launched Sutter Homes White Zin, the people who created the market. The irony was that he had a great palate. Wish he hadn’t sold out quite that much but he lived a rich life. Thanksgiving makes me think of him and this episode makes me think of others who are still around. The recs all make sense. Not sure what I’ll be drinking yet, though I have to confess that what I’ll be eating will be goose. I actually like turkey but I’m cooking for my Dad (who is a grouch) and he won’t eat it.
    Best to all.

    Just had easter dinner. At Gary’s recommendation I tried some Zin.

    I just gotta say it went exceptionally well and I will definitely be doing it again.

    Thanks GV

    Qotd: Just spending time with my family makes it the best Thanksgiving ever. However – Two Thanksgivings ago I think was the time my wife and I made our beautiful Daughter – so that’s very cool!

    Hello Mrs. Vaynerchuk. I’m sorry that it has taken me almost 2 years to view this episode. I just wanted to tell you that you have a lovely home and your Thanksgiving table is beautiful. You have a delightful son. You must be so proud of him. Have a nice 2008 Thanksgiving! (hey, Gary, how was that? Is your Mom smiling? :)

    qotd: years ago family was together at a real long table to eat. Grandpa asked my dad to toss the potatoes to him, who were at opposite ends of the table. Instead of passing them my dad picked one up and tossed and it landed right in my grandpa’s drink.
    Like those wine suggestions Gary. I heard 2 about 2 other good wines for thanksgiving I may try this year. Qupe’s roussanne is supposed to work. I also saw a review for a good cheap light red to use that went great with turkey. J. Lohr’s valdiguie. Similar to gamay, and one that I like already since that varietal is barely known. I’ve had it before and it gives great q.p.r.
    Gary, I’d like to request you do an episode on tasting different charbono’s, and especially one on vin jaune’s.
