Firstly, this video is simply amazing. Next, if you ask me what wine goes well with a birthday cake, I would say Sangiovese Wine.

    Statement of the day: That cake looked somewhat proletarian set against the $35 cheese pairings you usually do…..

    Congratulations Gary and Wine Library! SOTD: Gary, you and your family are the ideal of the “American Dream.” Many have twisted that to mean different things, but what it has always really meant is taking advantage of the freedom and opportunity available here through hard work and creativity, not through handouts. I am a proud cold warrior, so it gratifies me even more that you emigrated from Russia to become a capitalist success. 😉 You’ve taught me more about wine in less than a year than I could ever learn on my own in a lifetime, and I’ve enjoyed every minute of it. I’ll continue watching as long as you decide to keep doing the show, but no pressure. 😛 Hopefully I’ll run into you on my next “pilgrimage” to “mecca”.

    Congratulations on the second anniversary of your show! Nothing thrills me more than to see someone who makes their passion in life his vocation and consequently is driven to attain expertise and excellence in his field. It delights me even more that you have the right perspective on the importance and value of wine; you do not value wine for its own sake, as an end in itself, but rather as a means by which people’s lives may be enriched and enlivened. I appreciate how you treat wine not only as a source of gustatory pleasure and intellectual stimulation but also as a means of bringing people together and forging relationships. Thank you for the creative, enthusiastic, and entertaining way in which you encourage people to embrace wine and the loved ones with whom they imbibe it.

    Hey, GV! Finally got to the BIG show. Life is nuts but WLTV is like an oasis away from the madness and it’s been that way since episode 3 when i decided to download the Quicktime player and check you out.

    Thank You!

  • I’m watching ep 413 as I type. Don’t get depressed, some of us lurkers are very slow in catching up some time. This noon I was able to watch three shows in a row (almost unheard of!)

    I enjoyed the Year #3 is here walking back and forth behind the episode. Made me laugh, and believe me… I need that right now!

    I will do my absolute best (because I would love it!) to start a Thirsty Thursday Tasting group in my area. I have several very very special friends that I drink with, and we share lots of things. Having a set time to taste wine would be a good thing for us.
