What’s wrong, Hans, you can’t take a little criticism? Assuming you are who you say you are, a vintner shouldn’t openly insult someone for giving an honest opinion about their wine. Not only does it come across as pompous and juvenile, but it shows a complete lack of gratitude for critics like Vaynerchuck, who offer criticism that could help you hone your wine-making skills. At the very least, you should respect the subjective opinions of others even if you happen to disagree.

    QOTD: Raw potential. Certainly NOT limited to the wine world. Potential on so many fronts.

    Interesting show, as always. Would love to see you do a show on Argentine and Chilean Patagonia to follow up on the A Lisa. Give us peeps some perspective on all the hype.

    I agree with Derek. The samples of Chilean wines in the US stores are still very limited and/or dominated by the big brands. In my opinion, there are a lot of wines in Chile that brings the thunder for $6.000 to $15.000 Pesos (12 to 30 US$) and usually they come from mid to small winaries that probably struggle to make it to USA under today’s currency scenario (US Dollar is at its weakest point in probably ten years compared to Peso). Add to that the earthquake effect (smaller production) and you will see why producers opted to keep their production in Chile or to send it to other markets rather than USA this year. Gary, I would be more than happy to suggest you a bunch of very interesting wines for your taistings, without the need of reaching the high price of CM Lota.
