    so you guys talked about wineries using other fruits ( not their own) common practice within the industry. Qustion: why didyou choose an american labled wine fromtheir selections instead of a AVA designated label?

    I just saw this episode for the first time today. Absolutely CLASSIC. Your pops is wonderful and pipes, what can I say, amazing. In answer to her QOTD: I would like to shadow her for a day or perhaps just ride along on her wine sojurn for a day. I must check out her blog now. Classic.

    Easily one of the best episodes of all times. Sasha is made from 50% charisma and 50% awesome, and easily one of the best guests ever. Sasha/Pipes 08.

    This was indeed a fun episode. If I am not mistaken, Osoyoos (pronounced roughly like oh-soy-yus) Larose is co-owned by the Canadian firm Vincorp and by Chateau Gruaud-Larose. I was pleased with the favourable review as it my personal favourite among the wines of the British Columbia Okanagan region. When enjoyed at a local restaurant, its bouquet was noticeable, eventually, several tables away.

    I will not attempt to guess Gary’s Dad’s age, but he was in excellent spirits.

    dad was a joy and like me cant resist debating the big picture…

    qotd 1 : 55ish

    qotd 2 : Pyper was living the dream…

    qotd 3 : too late we already know. luckily sanity prevailed.

    found this episode by searching “Canada” – you are still really thin on Canadian themed episodes and especially Niagara stuff other than the dessert wines. Please find some time and feature Niagara a bit more this year, come and visit too!

    Favorite episode all time. Period. I cant count how many times I laughed out loud. Your dad is PRICELESS!! I demand that he come on more often. Now im not saying I dont love what you bring. I do. A lot. But they way you and your dad interact just gets me rolling on the floor. I love it. QOTD1: 55. QOTD2: My lazy front of the house manager. I KNOW shes lazy, but Id love to see to what extent over 8 hours. QOTD3: Well we know the answer, and I was rooting for him the whole time.

    Absolutely epic. Now my favorite episode of all time. Saw this episode referenced in today’s ep (627) and had to see for myself. There is so much greatness in this episode. I can’t get over it. Pipes is now my favorite guest you’ve ever had and the rapport between you and your dad is blueprint for how all father-son relationships ought to be. I will watch this episode with my dad tomorrow.

    Wow, just wow.

    That episode was incredible, I’m a new Vayniac, and I’m working my way backwards from the newest episodes towards Ep. #1.

    So far, this is my favorite episode by far. First of all, Jen was the best guest I’ve seen thus far, exhibiting all sorts of Vayniac and Wine knowledge, and guest hosting very well along side Gary.

    Not to mention Sasha joining the episode half way through and totally rocking my socks off, we even got a spot of Mott in there, what an all star cast for episode #403!

    I know this is pretty late to be commenting on an episode from well over a year ago, but get used to it fools! I’m working my way back from late March 2009 and not making any excuses!

    THREE Q’sOTD:
    #1. I’m gonna guess that Pops is 60 years old on the spot.
    #2. I’d like to shadow my brother Caleb at work for one day, he works on an upcoming website called scrapblog.com
    #3. I (thought at the time that Obama was going to win) now know that Obama won the presidential election of 2008.

    Pipes Rocks! I want to join her on a wine tour of the world.
    Sasha maybe as old as 65 but he always steals the show. This time Pypes stole it.

    QOTD 1: 56 turning 57
    QOTD 2: If I could travel back in time I would spend a day with Kadinsky, one of my all time favorite artists. Perhaps we’d drink some wine from the early 1900’s at the end of the day 😛

    – Can’t answer the 3rd Q as Obama has already been elected prez.

    PS:If you haven’t had the chance to go to the Guggenheim in NYC, you should, they have remarkable exhibits there.

    An awesome episode. The kind of show that was so wonderfully social that it made me feel like I was watching a family hang out after a turkey dinner!

    QOTD: 57? I think shadowing the UN Secretary General would be massively intruiging.

    Great episode guys. I have just sent texts to some new vayniacs saying they have to watch this one. Thanks for giving the wine from Canada a good review. I have not been to that vineyard yet but I guess its just moved up on my list.

    Hey GV – watching my way through some old episodes and found this one under Canadian, which I am. All I can say is our liquor taxes here SUCK… we pay at least $55CAD for Larose here vs. your $24USD. Maybe I just need to move to NJ.

  • Randall

    Kadinsky!!!!

  • corkscrew

    She's sorta cute..Sasha and Mott make an apprearance. 4 bad wines… QOTD-1. early 60's; 2. maybe Derick Jeter..he 's still single and has an entourage..:3. time to ask for a recall…. http://www.winelx.com
