    I got the EXP Viognier from your store when you were offering free shipping and I tried it tonight. I was very excited when I noticed it was a little ‘hot’ on the first taste and you said the same. I just got into wine about 6 months ago so its cool to feel like I am starting to get it. Thanks as always for the awesome content.

    Thanks Gary – I really apreciate the thoughts on Viognier. I just had a kosher one from Goosebay, New Zealand, and was deeply impressed. QOTD – I need to go dancing this weekend, so hoping to get a crew together.
    Peace – Harry

    Another shot at California Chardonnay? Ouch.. ha ha. Ive had a few Vioginer’s, and I rather like them. I own a few bottles and its def. a wine Im going to stockpile some more of. By the way, Niccoli Volokoff (spelling?) for the win. Great gimmick. I loved it when the crowd booed him basically because he was Russian and Russia was bad… blah blah blah. Iron Shiek, too. I was down with them. I always wanted them to crush Hogan and Savage, or Hogan and whomever. QOTD: Working. I work day shifts as a cook in a good seafood restaurant, so Im in around 6 or 7 am and out around 2-3 pm. 7 nights off a week and Im a cook? Are you kidding me!? How great is that? Pretty damn great. But I pull the weekends like any cook should and so usually when I get home I veg out for a bit, mabye do some reading and or working out. I dont really make plans on days I work. If I do its usually going down the street to get dinner nearby. Hey nearly all of us have our two days off, dont we?

    Rats. No place in the U.S. carries any vintage of the Bilancia. I’ll have to try something else, I guess.

    Love seeing the spotlight on viognier, its getting more attention, & alot of low quality versions are oout there, but it’s still an underrated grape.
    Gary, how about putting a vin jaune on the show for something brand new?

    The name “The Foundry” kind of reminds me of the Simpson's ep “Homer's Phobia” 😀
