    Bigtime salud to you Mr. GV. Let the ride begin.

    QOTD: My wife, two boys (6 and 4) and angle girl (almost 2). Baby days gone for us, but we loved every moment (even the twitchy, schizo nights w/o sleep).

    Thousands of stunning moments heading your way. Prepare to be blown away.

    P.S. We always had good luck with the “burrito” wrap for sleep time w/ infants. It’s almost like an “off” switch.

    The picture of your young daughter touches me, because it remindes me on the times, when I was a father of a son, who is now 19 years old. It brings all the mistakes that I made to my mind. And on all the right things I’ve done (not too much ..).

    I wish You the best, Gary V.

    You will need it.

    Your show is great.

    I love it.

    Alles Gute aus Österreich,

    Wolfgang

    Tears to my eyes. Reminds me of my “time in the saddle”, trying to juggle work and being a father. Great episode, thanks for sharing little Misha with us. Will look up Rosa d’Oro next time I’m visiting Pops (81) up in Kelseyville. Maybe I’ll make it a father-daughter outing and we’ll take the back roads through Calistoga…
    QOTD: My wife Cherie and Daughter Kelley.

    Hi Gary,

    Just got word that the DV Dolcetto won a gold in the California State Fair with a score of 94 as well as an award in the LA International Wine Competition. The bottle you received must have spoiled going through the travels from California to New Jersey. Bummer! We think you and your fans would have enjoyed our Dolcetto.

    Best,

    My Sunshine is my son, Kalen at 18 months. Fatherhood only gets better but I’ll give you an update at the “terrible twos”. The only Italian varietal aside from Oregon Pinot Gris I’ve had and can recommend was the Luna Sangiovese from Napa. I don’t recall the vintage but it was a few yrs ago. Fruit bomb for sure but not too complex. Re Veneto: The 06 vintage is rockin! I’ve had some fab Valpol Ripasso wines, Tommasi being memorable (maybe too oaky for you?). I’ve put away the Zenato for a special occasion (wine advocate 93 pts.) but I’m afraid even the 06 vintage can’t bring that high a score for the valpol superior, I hope I’ll be fortunate enough to have some Amarone and Recioto from this vintage.

    As always I loved this episode! I’m totally not surprised that the Lake County Rosa D?Oro Barbera stole the show, Lake County is highly under rated. There’s some great stuff coming from there, it’s the next county over from Napa (actually Lake County was originally part of Napa County, but I’ll let you bone up on your history for that story), and considering that the majority of the county is based on rich volcanic soils and gravels from Mt Konocti, along with it’s HOT summer days and cool nights, it’s no wonder that the county with the oldest ancient lake in North America (yes NORTH AMERICA) is producing some excellent wines.

    Oh and the tshirt – OVER THE TOP BUDDY!!!!
