    Gary, I can’t get any episodes to run video just audio with a jerky video sort of playing in the background. Has anything been changed? Seems like you have been on a run of wines that you don’t really like.

    New Zealand, first. France Second. S. Africa bringing up third (have to agree with Chito, they are making some nice stuff these days, must be getting ready for the WORLD CUPS crowds in 2010). I tend to like the grassy New Zealand stuff more than some of the other others.

    QOTD: Hands down, France is my favorite. I, too, love a good Sancerre.

    QOTD: NZ, but I need to expand to other parts of the world. Sorry about the show, hate seeing you with that look on your face after drinking multiple bad wines.

    Enough with the Sav Blanc…..too many episodes on it. QOTD-New Zealand (for value) but recently some higher end California ones (better body/weight) http://www.winelx.com

    hahaha, I love that cat pee is a descriptor of sav. blanc! Of the whites that I do drink, I like sav. blanc the best, not too sweet! Great episode! come to VT :)

    nothing like a nice glass of cat pee… but i think a seminar from gary v at virginia tech would be a little better!

    From the videos I’ve watched, this is the first time I’ve ever heard you tell a whole state to rip up an entire grape variety. Doesn’t 81 points seem high? Were I growing Sauvignon Blanc, I think my wine would have to be a bit worse before I destroyed my vineyard :)
