Unfortunately, I was not able to go to the pinot noir wine tasting as I had other commitments that weekend. However, I would really like the chance to drink these pinot noir wines: https://zyn.ca/collections/pinot-noir

    QOTD: Loire Cab Franc's with Veggies. So much so, that I think I need to try some other options. I'm sure a Gigondas like Lizzy43 mentioned would be great!

    Came across, and bought, a 2000 Fleury Gigondas today – very excited to try that tomorrow night!

    Thank you very much.

  • Richie

    Good job Mott! 😉

  • ewb

    Love the length of this episode.
    QOTD: I have no idea. Something I will have to experiment with.

  • QOTD: Riesling

  • DAveAll

    I like that New York has moved from grape juice vines to wine vines in so many areas. Especially like the Niagara grape itself.
    QOTD: Veggie wine? ok, so this came from the pickle smell? ha. Gewurztraminer or Meritage Blanc.

  • murso

    QotD – a rather general question merits a general answer. I love my vegetables. The smelly piss thing w/ asparagus puzzles, and annoys me, but I still eat asparagus, with only a sometimes pass. So I love most white wines w/ vegetables. Chards, S.B., Chenin Blanc, P.G., Albarino, other Spanish /Portuguese varietals and D.O. named wines,(don't forget the fresh Vinho Verde!), Trebbiano/Ugni Blanc, Picpouls, Gros Manseng, etc., ad tedium..,

  • plcb

    QOTD: I guess it would be a light crisp white like Three Stones Sauvignon Blanc or a white Rioja or a Vinho Verde. Or most likely a Samuel Adams Summer beer!!!!! Tis the season.

  • John_Kenneth_J

    qotd: red – cab franc, white – sav blanc, put that together and, well, I don't really think of cab sav w veggies, but whatever.

    You're right Gary, and I have no prob w the guests, but for a guy who said he was gonna ease up on the guests, it almost seems like you're trying to break a record w them this year.

  • zanne_70

    QOTD: Gotta agree with some of these posts about a Loire Cab Franc with cooked veggies at least. For salads, I'd probably go more for a rosé or maybe a slightly chilled Beaujolais cru. For spicier fare, maybe Riesling or bubbles?

  • DCaragher

    GV – Check out Dr. Frank's pinot, but preferably the odd years! Pretty decent stuff! GO MOTT!

    QOTD: I like Sauv Blanc with asparagus and bell peppers!

  • Mike in C-town


    QOTD: I like mine grilled with a Pinot Gris or a ZaZa Rosé (from Campo de Borja).

  • SS_Chris

    Pickles……..all HAIL the MOTTSTER!!!!!!

  • JR

    Gary, I think Mott may be trying to muscle you out… 😉

    QOTD: Dry riesling

  • Randall

    Love a good Vinho Verde!!

  • QOTD: Easy answer. I'm a college student – I don't eat vegetables =)

  • Pickles, good one Mott!!

    QOTD: I rarely have just veggies for dinner, but if having a salad, its gonna be a white, and something interesting. Just something to spice up the meal, since to me veggies are just ok. Probably a riesling, or possibly an attempt for me to find a Rose I like.

    First time leaving a comment for me here… I just signed up for the video podcast and I saw this episode. I got engaged this past August at Niagara Falls ( canadian side). My fiance and I went wine tasting for the first time up there. We had such a blast and I was hoping you could do a show on some of the Rieslings and/orGewurztraminer from the region. Love the show and the sniffy sniffy!

    Tough look on missing the call there with the pickles. My best friend once came up with the best saying when I was having a little trouble getting dances from the ladies, and it holds true here as well. 'If you swing enough times you'll eventually hit a homerun.' I think that's the case with Mott. No offense dude, but you aren't going to steal gv's thunder anytime soon.
    Qotd: Ironically I'm going to say either a champagne or chardonnay. Because veggies are so clean, something fruity yet a little goupy or sugary contrasts nicely with the freshness and cleanly-ness of the veggies.

  • teckdeck2008

    you should man, it makes you feel ten times better. i used to be like you and now i need my regular diet of veggies or else i feel like crap in the food processing area.

  • No doubt! My diet is absolutely horrible.

  • joakimhirschberg

    qoth. depends on what kind of vegetables and how they're done and what season of they year and what mood I am in 🙂

  • joshuastreeter

    Glad to see you recycle, Gary!

    I mean, your shirt, from episode #32, in April 2006. http://tv.winelibrary.com/2006/04/12/episode-32

    I swear, ODD coincidence I watched these two episodes back to back and picked up on that. I am not the undercover fashion police, I swear. Serious…I swear, I swear, I swear.

    I swear as much as you, apparently.

    Mott's tastebuds are every bit as good as Gary's and everyones taste buds are different. Gets ya thinkin how much Gary's take on a wine might differ from you and me doesn't it? Might be fun to have three people tasting and rating the wines on several episodes. Maybe even the same three for a control experiment…then we could buy the wines and see whom we can liken ourselves to for future tastings.

  • cybertlh

    Qotd – Sauv Blanc, I always figure e acid is sa play…

  • JayZee13

    Interesting little show. I think I may have visited this winery a few years ago when I was visiting family up in the Buffalo area. At least, we visited a winery on the Niagara Escarpment that produced only Pinot Noir and when I tasted it, I said it was very weird, but very well-made. I didn't buy any, but I seriously considered it because it was so different.

    QOTD: Roussanne

  • Love wine and pickles – so what better wine to buy than one that smells like pickles? As president of The Pickle Club, I am looking forward to tasting this wine. : )

  • Thanks a landlord it! I acquired yet some insight. Life is so colorful, we should be able to live in, such as Korea and honor the planet. Human life is like rivers, slowly flowing, flowing rivers, flowing through the snow, flows through the prairie and ultimately into the sea, return to the embrace of nature, start a new reincarnation. Allow us to feel the meaning of life will come only to those you have those memories http://www.cheap-nikeshox.com/nike-shox-R3.html

  • I know you probably get a lot of comments like this, but just wanted to let you know that I really appreciate the work you have put into the blog. I was wondering if I could put a link on my blog because I am sure my followers would love to read it. Let me know.
