line of the day (by guest) – ‘if you are eating pizza and you’re not drinking Barbera, you’re an imbecile’

No fault of the guest but his quiet voice is not picked up too well by the microphone (Mott’s fault!). Shame ‘cos he’s got a good story to tell.

    Liked the show and represented the high end aspect of the Biz. I think you need a certain personality to succeed at the top end in New York. This guy seems to be quite personable and down to earth.

    I hope Gary will also find time to do the low end side of the Biz too (price wise… not quality) and the challenge they have with getting good value priced wines to accompany their foods (i.e. not the critter wines). Would be a fun show.

    OK, so this episode inspired me to go shopping last night. The only bottle available at the local Wine Gallery – 2001 Hubert Lamy St. Aubin (and I mean the only bottle – took it off the display rack). Really nice, a little pricey for my everyday consumption but quite enjoyable. Thanks, Gary, another door opened!

    Catching up on some shows but this is a great part 1. Super cool guy. I’m curious as to your retail on a wine like this.

  • Matlock the Burgundian

    He loves Italian cuisine with French precision. He loves Burgundy and Rhone Valley wine. He opened a classy wine restaurant. I think I’ve found a new BROmance. :)

    I agree with Little Jonny that 99.7% of us are a little dumbfounded by throwing around ‘$600’ bottles of wine.

    Great show and I love the ‘On Location’ stuff.

    Big fan of your show. But even a bigger fan of this type of episode. I’m somewhat into wine and appreciate any education I can on the subject. I enjoy your reviews, but episodes like this one (Cru interview) really pique my interest. I think I learn more about wine and appreciate all the hard work you do when you interview and taste on an episode.

    Awesome. This is the type of wine nerd dialogue that I thought that we were going to get in the terrior episodes. Which was not the case by the way. Crazy but, I just had a kid and if it was a boy, I was going to name him Crew. I wanted Cru but my wife talked me out of it… no joke.
