      Great shop tour!! I gotta stop by sometime! NY wines is all we had in Ithaca! Made a great senior week 25yrs ago, touring all the wineries in the Finger Lakes region! Hope you’re having a restful week in Florida!

      New York wines I have not tried but what the hell I’m in
      Thanks Gary, can’t wait till you get back !

      I actually like the reruns. Since I only started watching at about episode 150, I’ve gone back and watched some of the older ones that I though would interest me, but it’s nice that gary cherry-picked a few favourites to show us again. That store is gargantuan! There isn’t a wine shop even half that size in all of Ireland! Nor can we get New York wines here.

      Another episiode request: Bordeaux vertical of something really good – don’t think I’ve seen any verticals yet…

      Nice tour of the store.

      But where are those parakeets I keep hearing the background?

      Well Gary! You better get back from vacation. You were the topic on the Eric Asimov NYTimes.com blog today.

      Man!, the Vayner-nation is growing!

      @Mark – Nice. I went to add a comment specifically to point out the Benny Hill theme and you beat me to it. haha.

      Long live Benny Hill (at least in re-runs).

      That was a great (albeit quick) way to do a tour.

      Now I have to see if this is really a rerun – back to episode 64 – also – why aren’t you using “The Vayner-CHUCK” for bad wines? That’s an awesome saying!

      China is quickly growing into the future epicenter of wine exchange and palate development. You have a fast growing economy, anxious to learn about the world. Fast forward 2 years from when you originally made this episode (which btw, seeing the wine library, makes me want to embark on a pilgrimage to visit)and there are vineyards in China revolutionizing Chinese wine. See this cool post from Mr. Jim Boyce of the grapewallofchina, http://www.grapewallofchina.com/2009/10/27/chinas-best-wines-grace-vineyard-silver-heights-tasting-this-friday-in-beijing/

      Keep it up Gary!
