90/100

line of the day – ‘how many people have come up to you and said ‘bulls**t?’

Unlike the last show when the guest was saying stuff in order to impress Gary and us, this guest had genuine passion, loads of unique knowledge and was unassuming. Nice one.

    Cool show Gary. Tim was kinda salesman on this one but you can tell he’s a genuine, down-to-earth guy, and it definitely got me wanting to try Vignon!

    I took the budometer test and came out as a “sensitive taster”… cool. I like salt and all kind spices, and when I cook I’ll really season with whatever I’ve got, not worrying much about combinations or measurements. Food and wine are really fundamentally so wonderful, and I think people overthink and close their minds to experiencing new things.

    QOTD: Darlene McHenry is my mom. She’s a beautiful, strong, compassionate and selfless lady, and of course I love her.
    She and her boyfriend tend to get stuck on their Blue Moon and supermarket white zinfandels and merlots, though, so my brother and I are always trying to get them to branch out! (^_-)

    MR Hanni, Great Show. Love episodes like this one. I will look for your product, luckily someone imports it to Mexico.

    QOTD: I do love my mother, she’s a stern-old fashioned-no bullshit woman from a numerous family and a bit scary at times but she means well and is always active, which is admirable.

    Good Stuff Gary … I will look for that particular brand promptly.

    This was such a cool, quality episode! It was great to see other parts of the wine business being represented…and how amazing is that to be a Master of Wine? Wow….I’m quite impressed!

    And that product looks quite amazing…I’ll be looking for it when I get back States side.

    QOTD: Of course I love my ma Susan, she’s awesome!

    Cool episode, checked out the budometer website. He was a good guest, one of the best in my opinion.

    It was interesting for me to hear about the MW certification. The seasoning sounds interesting (I’ll probably try it if I see it in a store), but I do love how certain wines match so well for me with certain foods. I know some pairings do not usually taste as good together, but I cannot imagine that a general use seasoning will replicate the magic of a seemingly perfect pairing. Even when it’s not quite that good, I really enjoy trying different combinations because some are better than others. I’m sure the seasoning doesn’t make everything taste the same, but it seems like it might take some of the fun out of the experience for me.
    Thank you very much, Tim, for appearing on Gary’s show (even though it was to market your product).

    As usual an excellent show. I wish there had been more time for demonstration of other faux pas food and wine combinations resolved with this product.

    Wow, it all makes sense.

    Diet Soda is the nastiest stuff I’ve ever tasted and I never understood why people liked it.

    I do shy away from table salt because of health concerns, but love the good stuff, particularly for grilling. Brazilian, French, Hawaiian, Alder Smoked, all in my cabinet and use them all the time to accentuate flavors.

    Good work as always!

  • Dessert Wine Nerd

    Wow, Tim Hanni rocks it!! Great show and what an interesting product!! Def. something to think about, esp since Im a growing wine drinking who is trying his best to enjoy reds. I love me some salt so that must mean Ive got quite a bit of taste buds. Have to check out that site to see for sure. QOTD: My mom is my mom, and shes fantastic.

    Fun show. According to the budometer web site, I am a hyper-sensitive taster also.

    QOTD: I love my mom. She was actually the person that introduced me to wine.

    This was a good episode. Liked the vignon bringing back the wine after asparagus. However, you had a master of wine and didn’t even make him taste with you. My absolute favorite part of WLTV episodes with guests is when you taste side by side and compare notes. I love hearing what other people taste in the wines compared to what you taste. I think that you wasted a great opportunity. Get him back and let us hear and see him taste as well!!!
