Live (kinda) from the Taste Washington seminar Gary Vaynerchuk tastes off Washington wines.
Love the honesty, especially when the winemaker’s are potentially present

What a tease! What are the red wines for tomorrow?
QOTD: Washington state wines are delicious
It’s Seahawks suck, or Seahawk sucks, but never Seahawks sucks. And, so, how did the Jets do last year?
Very nice concept for this and future episodes.
Nice to see you “perform” live…and it’ll be great to see the reds tmrw. I was wondering how you were gonna taste 6 wines in 13 minutes!
can’t wait for tomorrow!
GV–Thanks for using my Seahawks bucket (even though you threatened to spit only bad wines into it!). The bucket will have a prominent place in my home and will be used by Seattle Vayniacs for many tastings to come. I went out and tried to find the 06 Cougar Crest after the show, but could only get the 05 on short notice, which wasn’t quite as good. That was my favorite white of the morning.
So, you drafted Brandon Morrow for your fantasy team? Good choice. He should be with the big club soon, especially the way the bullpen has been hitting batters, walking runs in and giving games away. JJ Putz will need some solid pitching ahead of him when he gets back from the DL–Morrow is probably that guy again.
Gary, another live show. Is CAA sending you out to flesh out the live demo reel? Proof of concept – this guy is live TV material?
On live shoots, I suggest a collar mic.
Also, I think it would be fun to have a second cameraman. Or maybe a fan with a video cam. If they can give you the footage quickly, you could edit fan reaction shots, etc.
8.1 +- 0.24
8.1 +\- 0.24
TO BE CONTINUED? That’s so Happy Days, GV! But don’t worry, WineLibraryTV hasn’t jumped the shark. And I’ll tune in tomorrow, same bat time, same bat station.
NICE…so much for the Washington State Whites…
Hey GV one out of 3 ain’t bad, right ? Oh well, let’s hope the reds show a bit better. I like the live format though, that’s fun !
My own QOTD: who picked the wines for this taste off ? I can think of 5 other Washington white wines that would kill !! It’s all good though ~
Your personal database of so chock full of sports trivia however do you find space for the vast catalog of wines in your head? An enigma wrapped in a mystery.
oh, the suspense is killing me.
QOTD: No, I’ve never had a Washington state wine. What am I waiting for? Dunno. This episode I guess. 🙂
Great 1/2 show Gary, I’m looking forward to tomorrow.
He, He; Looks like the flipside of voting day â?? the East slumbers while the left coast provides the input.
What would you be drinking right now if you had no obstacles?
Hey! I like this format! It’s fun to know that the audience is tasting along with Gary. Ballsy to have the winemakers there to hear the big pazzzzz.
Are Seahawk fans that quiet and boring. Love the concept and kudo’s for being honest in front of the winemakers,how do you like them apples
Looking forward to part 2
Looks like you are having a great time in WA. Thanks for taking the show on the road
Multi-part episode..nice! Thanks Gary and Mott for coming through for the Vayniacs at home with some on the road tasting, we appreciate it!
Gary-thanks for the shout out to eating watermelon rinds. Pickled Watermelon rinds are a gift from above.
a surprise 2-parter. Appreciate you keeping it real in the lion’s den.
hey gary, a good washington state riesling is by Kiona winery. their late harvest and ice wines are also great
Hey Gary–I haven’t even finished watching this episode, but your sincerity from the get-go is overwhelming. I’m a big fan (have been since day one)–and it is shows like these, where you talk about how humbling this all is (having even one fan), that makes me misty-eyed! You bring the thunder 24/7–for this we are the lucky ones! And the wine, yeah, that too is only secondary to the bigger picture! Cheers from OH-HI-OH (let us Buckeyes know when you are coming this way!)
Seriously…what is going on with iTunes? How come the shows aren’t making it over there anymore? This is seriously cramping my commute!
