    Hey Guys

    Great show, real personality. You’ve got to love any man who makes wine and sausages – two of the greatest things going around!

    QOTD: Nothing you can do about it so may as well love it!

    Cheers

    That was easlity one of my favorite guests. Gretzky has more name recognition but not half the on-camera personality of Vance Sharp.

    QOTD:It is all about how you wear it.

    Bic razor = Always
    Horseshoe = Sometimes
    Michael Bolton = Never

    Sorry for the delay in the comment. I get your show downloaded on my Tivo, and it just downloaded today.

    I’m a lurker coming out to comment on your guest’s question of the day about what the world really thinks about bald men:

    I think they are damn sexy!!!

    Anyway, thanks for the show Gary. I’ve gone from a person who really didn’t like wine to a person who not only loves wine but is actually being able to discern the subtle differences between them in a few short months thanks to your show! Thanks to you, wine no longer just smells and tastes ‘like wine’ but has a world of amazing smells and tastes that I never would have associated with wine. What an incredible experience this has been. Thanks for opening my eyes to a whole new world!

    This has been the episode that has turned me from a Lurker to a comment contributer! I have only just begun to explore the wonderful world of wine, for about 2 months (formerly a dark beer and scotch guy) and I have to say that of all the eps I have watched, in this one Gary and his wonderful guest appear very relaxed and work off each other in such a way as to really showcase what is right and great about Wine Library T.V. I live on the west coast of British Columbia, Canada and because of some very restrictive import laws, I can only dream of some of the great wines that are featured here. However, by making use of the search field, by wine type, I have been able to follow along by varietal type and greatly improve my appreciation of the message that Gary is trying to get across.
    Love the show, Love the guest.

    QOTD: I AM a bald man and it is not about the hair… I’ts about how you carry yourself. Self confidence is the sexiest attribute.
