    Wow, got to love that pompous British excuse for a wine expert.

    QOTD: I try to keep it 50-50 with both but I definitely get on kicks for specific regions or grape types but I really have no preference.

    OMG, how, I repeat, HOW, did you keep a straight face for 14 minutes doing that?!?!?

    Kudos! And thanks for making my “April Fools Day 2008!”

    That was a fine, serious, dignified performance Sir Gary. I have some ideas for next time. You should recommend a wine for relaxing after a fox hunt with the Prince of Wales. Maybe recommend a dessert wine for when having tea with the queen. You definitely canâ??t sign off with Garyâ??s line. I recommend â??keeping the wine world for those who are worthy.â? After this line you should stand up; push your chair in and do a â??superior danceâ? à la Church Lady.

    Anyone who didnt like this episode clearny has no sense of humor. Not to be attacking people, but this was brilliant. This is why I love your show so much. I was almost laughing too much to hear half the things you were saying. QOTD: 90% whites, but I did drink a nice Italian red the other day, so I am getting better.

    I love the Sir Gary episodes, never heard of them until I went back into the archives. Which means there hasn’t been a Sir Gary episode in a VERY long time… hmmm

    I HATE this eps. It didn’t have the energy that’s normaly on the show, it wan’t funny at all and boring as can be. If it wasn’t for the fact that I like Gary’s shows and content I would have quit watching with in 10 mins.

    If I was someone new to the site/show, I wouldn’t come back.

    Please make tomorrows show like you normaly do Gary PLEASE!

    I can’t believe I was laughing at such a serious episode……..wow…but nice nonetheless……

    QOTD: 60/40 as I’m pretty new and eventhough I’m trying to get the best of both world red still dominates…

    Found this episode after you twittered about Sir Gary. It almost reminds me of watching Stephen Colbert – hilarious, authentically inauthentic and I couldn’t get enough. When you said the 3rd wine smelled like “Italy in the country time,” I think you meant that it smelled like “County Time [lemonade] in Italy” – otherwise, what the heck is “country time”?

    QOTD: 60% red to 40% white

    I drink probably 85% white to 15% red. Two years ago it was probably reverse. I really prefer this style of Gary to the other one. Keep these coming!

    Corton can really be austere. My first intro to Corton was different as well and I couldn’t see the value – but once you have a few…their intrigue hooks you! Plus, the ’04 Jadot was a more traditional year in Burgundy. The ’03 Vincent Girardin you were loving – ’03 was HOT so it had all the fruit and “applesauce” which is just very atypical of Burgundy.

    This was a fun episode. I enjoyed the concept. You won’t make it as an actor, but that was very enjoyable.

    I’m running about 40% white, 25% red, with 35% for dessert or rose. In non-dessert wine I actually prefer red, but I almost always have my wine over dinner and white is more compatible with most of what I eat these days. I am looking forward to the weekend, though, when I’m going to grill a steak and have a massive cabernet.

    Lol, a funny bit, i’m assuming that ‘Sir Gary’ is supposed to be a bit of an old school English gentleman stereotype? I’m a Brit. and very much enjoyed this, good to see Gary not taking himself too seriously and being a ‘self-depricating’ Englishman (on our behalf!).

    QOTD: Being in England, it’s probably 75% Red, 25% White, it’s nice to have some lightly chilled whites in our short summers but it can be hard to get inexpensive white wine that can be drunk by itself that has the killer combo of flavour and still keeping the acidity balanced so you can drink more than a glass without feeling like you’re burning your stomach!

    Can't say I have had any of these..mainly due to the price point..once gain must be nice owning a wine store..QOTD-85% red.. http://www.winelx.com

  • John_Kenneth_J

    qotd: you left out rose and yellow wine. I'd have to guess 50% red, 45% white, 4% rose, 1% yellow.

    cool episode, love when you switch things up

    QOTD: In my case it’s 70% red and 30% white (excluding desserts). The percentage of whites (sparkling included) is increasing year by year.

  • Anonymous

    QOTD: 50% red, 25% white, 10% sparkling, 10% fortified and 5% rose. So 60% red, 35% white, 5% rose.
