    Late comment … too much work :-( . Anyway, nice episode: good idea to talk about that. Still, I don’t know what to think of all this biodynamic talk. So difficult to find some good information about it. Is it really that ‘homeopatic’, what’s the ecological reasoning behind it and what’s the link with commercial discourse? I dunno, … it really seems a bit awkward to me, all that jibberjabber about mooncycles, climate karma and all that. Reminds me in of the similar paths of the Monodvino-winemakers, wineconsultants, … ; so, is it really true that those wines HAVE more TERROIR? Not in my experience (yet that’s a very limited one).
    QOTD: what R-movie, never known anything about R’s, or S’s, or T’s, … Just watched everything, nothing so exciting about that … What about your first R-wine? :-D

    I think the first R-rated movie I saw was “Porky’s”, unless “Jaws” (the original) was an “R” movie.

    Mark Block, I understand your skeptisism and think it’s healthy. However just because modern science doesn’t give it’s seal of approval do you really think that is enough to dismiss something? “Modern science”
    is a very young thing and is not infallable. The Tibetans have had words for the parts of atoms for at least a thousand years (probobly longer )and understood that matter is not a fixed “thing” but actually just movement, energy. Quantum physics has only recently figured this out. There are new ideas in science that would seem to support the ideas behind biodynamics mainly that everthing in the environment is interconnected so yes the seasons, moon cycle and even the animals in the vineyard have an effect on neverything else. It’s good not to beleive everything you hear but it is als oimportant to keep an open mind, non?

    qotd; not sure, 1st 1 i saw in the theater was terminator 2, i was 11.

    Wow Gary, you’re a great guy and everything but holy shit i cant believe some guy paid over $2500 for a simpson’s cup you wrote on, my god. when I think of the amount of wines or what kind of wines I could have bought with that kinda dough, or even the bills you could pay, its almost hard to believe. with that said, obviously that guy is looking for people to just give free money to, so buddy feel free to post a comment of how to get in contact w you so you can just throw a couple thousand my way.

    Gary, how about giving us a vin jaune episode?
