      Man Gary,

      What heart! What humanity! Thanks for being a great guy. Thanks for making wine about people and not pretensions. Thanks for loving your fans, for building community, for expanding the wine universe by making it so much smaller. Good show. Glad to have found you. Now, we’ve got to get you on wine of our times. this must be rectified.

      AGW

    • Dr. Dan

      Gary, it seems that any comment one could offer regarding that episode would be trite in comparison to that email you read. Even though you often state up front in episodes, “what we do on WLTV is taste wine,” it’s also true that you and WLTV do so much more than that. Hopefully, you can keep it going for some time yet.

      GV,

      This was a touching episode. Thanks for putting things in perspective. Your wine knowledge is tremendous but your compassion for life and the human spirit reigns supreme.

      Your mom did a good job with you, your other siblings may be a horror show, but you are a good egg. Thanks for speaking directly to Nick; Iâ??m sure it was his moment in the sun.

      Iâ??m off to do a good deed today.

    • The British Doctor

      Gary I was expecting an email from Robert Parker or someone but this is so much better. I’ve just qualified as a doctor and I’ve done lots of charity work with autistic children in the past and its impossible to overestimate how important something like your show could be to someone who finds life a hellava lot harder than you or I. Keep up the work Gary – you’re a legend.

      Peter.

      P.S. have you managed to source any Russian Caravan tea yet? If not i’ll send you some from Fortnums and Masons.

      Great stuff Gary. My mom loved the wine for her birthday. Shocking that South Carolina has smarter wine laws than the morons in charge in Georgia.

      Very cool Gary. I was telling one of my Clients about winelibrary because although he lives in Atlanta also, he was ordering wine from some other NY wine shop online. I told him to stop what he was working on and go to winelibrary.com and check out what you’ve got goin on. Really, beyond being able to learn from the show, and have a little fun in the process, it’s the idea of community that makes Winelibrary TV so great.

      Other than lurkers and haters of course.

      Nick, you’re the man. Careen, thanks for sharing an awesome story.

      Gary,

      Topm 5 episode. A few more Garys in this world would go a long way to making it a better place.

      But come on Gary, Nick should be a Jets fan? What the smurf? You should bring him hope, not despair.

      Awesome Gary. Just you sharing this with everybody out here. So again, what you already know: great job.
      And eh, Nick should be proud of himself. You owe him a true WLTV-shirt!

      Gary, I was in Long Island a week ago (today is April 30) and I stopped at Macari. I do agree that the Chardonnay is ok, a bit generic I would say. BUT, the Merlot Reserve is excellent. I dont’love mMerlots, but this one made me think twice! The people at the vineyard are very nice and are ready to answer any question you may have. It’s an excellent place to spent an afternoon at, just sipping some wine. I really like their approach at keeping wine making as natural as possible…Also, I am excited about going back and tasting the Malbec they just came out with. I hope Long Island can come up with some good Malbecs.

      PS this was a very special episode indeed. Really liked it, especially at the end.
