Don’t get me wrong – I like a bit of wine knowledge as much as the next man, but this is just a bit too nerdy for me. Guest had a lot of good things to say but wouldn’t want to get stuck in a lift with him. #boremetodeath

    Some of my favorite guests are the importers because that is the firs thing I look for when I look for a wine that’s been brought in from a different country and if I recognize the producer and have had luck with them before, I’m basically sold. It’s really interesting to get to know these people and their philosophies on wine and what type of style they like because that’s what they’re going to bring to the market.

    Keep it up GV

    I heard Pete mention State Line Liquers in Maryland. My brother used to go there all the time when I was a kid. The drinking age was lower in Maryland than in Delaware. : )

    Longtime lurker finally leaving a comment!!! Too bad i dont have much to say, other than that i looked up the price on Charvin Cotes du Rhone(peter weygandt’s every night wine) and the price is looking really affordable! im excited to try a wine recommended to me by a man who Gary obviously has so much respect for. I’ll finish it after i polish off the few Domaine Serene pinot noirs I havent drank yet. may blog about it, too..
    Thanks Gary…Hello everybody

    Sounds great! (I’m in for SF Bay Area meet up!) Thx Castello.

    Agree. You’re doing a good job filling in for him!

    Awesome. That talk was so good! Peter really gets across that wines like these, and of several similar industry colleagues, are in a superior league, in quality, craftsmanship, and style. And that style is meticulously controlled, and is in no way about maximum sugar, or alcohol, or megalo-marketing. People need to get to know guys like THIS are how seriously real wine is brought to our availability. And also, that in numerous cases, and often due to the limited nature of the organic, finite products, usually are not, and will not be available in all 50 states. Availability varies. Vintages really do vary, here! The wines are hand-farmed. (Made in the vineyard!) But there are usually equal quality alternatives available, if ‘yours’ is not. If http://www.weygandtmetzler.com/retailers.htm aren’t in your market, then get to know a fine wine retailer who knows the comparable quality, in Theise/Skurnik, Louis/Dressner, Rosenthal, Lynch, Kacher, Kysela, and numerous others. Great work, men!

    Great show GV. That was an awsome interview. As an importer of wines from new regions, it was very inspiring.
    Thanks to Peter and THANK YOU GV !

    Now I’m daydreaming that I should work in Importing rather than retail. Just daydreaming.

    Solid start to a 2-parter with a fantastic guest; an importer whose wines I have sold LOTS of in restaurants over the past 7 years.

    Great conversation…

    Great interview with a great guest. It is so nice to be able to put a face and voice (soft-spoken as it is) to a famous name that I’ve seen on labels for decades now. Peter is such a knowledgeable gentleman and a class guy. Gary has actually let Peter answer his questions so far, too! ;-)

  • MMDYNAMITE
