    Hey Gary,

    Let us Hockey Fans know if and when Wayne Gretzky will be making an appearance at your store – dying to get an autograph from the Great One!

    Never heard of this guy ? but he came across as a complete tool. Looked pissed too. And why don?t you use a tripod?

    Wow! This is my favorite guest so far. Who knew that The Great One was a wino?! This is awesome! I am originally from Buffalo, and as a 6 1/2 year old I saw him overcome a hat trick by Gilbert Perreault and break Esposito’s record for most goals in one season. It was a great night of hockey nearing the decline and rise of two of the great players.

    I forgot what the QOTD was. Oh…Yankees…let’s go with no.

    I was in Toronto last week and I tasted the #99 merlot and chardonay. Not bad, not bad at all. especially in canada where “ok” wines start at 18-20$. its a good play. On a side note I also tasted a white blend from creek side winery (waynes partner…) and I really liked it. 40 sauvignon blanc, 40% riesling and 20% pinot gris (or something liek that). Don’t know what the retail is but it would be worth checking out.

    Hi Gary,

    I absolutely love this wine video of yours but you really need to get the sound to where you can actually hear your guests clearly. We can always hear you but your guests are not always clear without turning up the volume and then turning down the volume when you come on. Perhaps a microphone with more power would do the trick. Thanks, keep up the interesting shows.

    QOTD:

    Absolutely NOT! Phillies for #2 baby!

    I couldn’t believe it, a hockey play from Gary V and a wine play from the Great One! Outta control! If there’s a signed bottle involved, I’ll totally take some of that cab, right now. Sign me up!

    Great show, loved his reactions to your tasting notes. When you were talking about BMX bike burned rubber, he was like “sure, its good”. Awesome! Keep up the great work.

    No way Gretzky, that Halos are going to beat down the Yanks. And how about my Chicago Blackhawks, Stanley Cup Champs in 2010!

  • Is it just my imagination or was Wayne a little toasted already? Seemed like he hit the bottle early on this one.

    Anyway, will the Yankees win the World Series? God, I hope not. At this point, it’s a tough hill to climb for the Angels (game 5 tonight), but I’m pulling for my Halos.

  • What a great interview with the Great One, he doesn’t seem to know his wine as well as Gary does. What a down to Earth guy, it is great to see that he is doing that whole wine business for his foundation as well. Hockey talk is always a bonus!

    Well The Yanks DID win now didn’t they! And I tend to think the Great one WAS a bit toasted here.

  • Great episode Gary!! As a fellow Canuck.. great to see the great one is such a cool guy… suggestion for another hockey player interview is Mario Lemieux… he’s been an oenophile since his rookie year, supposedly just got an awesome collection in his mansion in Pittsburgh.. just sold a million and half of Petrus…

  • Gary,
    Great show I just checked out #749 with you and your dad talking about 2007 Napa Valley wines. What is the best way for some one to start collecting wines? I like wine and have learned a ton from your shows, but I have not bought any wines as an investment. (just to consume) any suggestions?? I have not got your book “Crush It” but I am looking forward to getting it for Christmas . My kids won’t let me buy it so that means they got it for me.

  • Great show with the GREAT Gretzky! Getting ready to pop open a nice Cab to celebrate a recent court victory. Much success! Action Jackson at @mitchjackson

  • BigJoe

    Wayne Gretzky a complete tool? I thought he was down to earth and a total class act.

  • AydinO

    Hey Gary , Love the show, love the book just listening to it. I know the show is supposed to be kind of real, but next time place a lapel mic on the visitors. I can hardly here Wayne speak. Okay yes I'm picky cause I'm in the video world, but hey we can all use a little advice right?

    Keep on going!

  • Nice move on getting Wayne Gretzky.

    I’m a first timer and I saw the archive with you and Gretzky…unbelievable!!!He seems like such a down-to-earth guy. I will be spending a lot of time checking out your archives and will be a regular. Thanks for the recommendations…Wings in 2010.

  • noma

    Gretzky is drunker than drunk! He should be in rehab! Don't be an enabler, dude!

  • Edward

    If ya got the “great one” ya oughta get his mike workin.

  • doreglas

    I've tried most of Getzky's lineup, and the wines are indeed very well made ? with the exception of that '07 Chardonnay. 2007 was a great year in Niagara, but there's something amiss with that wine (I've tried it a couple of times). The Pinot Noir is pretty Burgundian, too. Niagara's about to hit the big time with Pinot Noir, as is Prince Edward County to the east. Nice to hear Gary championing Canadian wines. As he says, it's all about the acid…

  • Wow! great show, it entertain me well. Just a problem, I can't hear the voice of the guest clearly.^_^

  • Nice advertisement indeed! I love wine too!

  • Excellent advertisement!

  • really? wayne gretsky. cant wait.

  • This is a good post, I stumbled across your article while looking for song downloads. Thanks for sharing, I?ll be sure to recommend this site to others.
