  • Gary- The 4th of July is my husband Mick's 30th B-day. You met him in DC on the Crush It tour and changed our whole vision! We are still loving you for that! And the show f***ing cracks me up ever single day! I would love to bring him up for his b-day, celebrate, drink and give you a hug. Hope I can pull it off! -P.S. we are going on a Baltic Sea cruise the follow week- mid July. Flying into Amsterdam, a few days in Stockholm and then around the sea. Any wine suggestions for us to be sure to grab??? I'd love your insight! – Love, Tara Carbo!

    About sauvignon blanc, my store sold ALL of it's Honig sauv blanc soon after you talked about it with Lizzie while filming WLTV. I guess we have some vayniacs shopping in PA.

    WLTV: It was a water weekend with the heat and humidity. However the week started with beautiful weather and a Zin with BBQ.

    Looking forward to the brown bags. Bring it on.

  • Working to hook it up, I will bring some outstanding examples of Canadian wines if I make it!!!

  • Thanks Gary

    Good show, tight and informative. Oh yeah I loooove the brown paper bags.

    QOTD: What did I drink last weekend? Friday night a decent bottle of Chinati Classico. Saturday wine course so lots of good Spainish, Italian and Portugese stuff followed by my Rugby Team's end of year party were beer was the order of the day. Sunday went for yum cha so tea!

    Méo is awesome! 🙂 Love Lamarche as well

  • Still trying to decide if I should stay or if I should go

    QOTD: whatever my wife wants, its her birthday

  • I agree with you on the Bogle Chard! The 2008 is very good – you can get it in Northern Calif for under $10.

  • LindseyN

    haha lovehandles…

    QOTD: I drank 2008 Chateau Ste Michelle Sauvignon Blanc and 2007 Fontana Candida Secco. Two white wines paired with two ultra creamy cheeses, Havarti creamy white cheddar and Alouette double cream brie. I preferred the Ste Michelle, the cheese brought out a sweet mouth feel from the wine.

    2002 Cosentino Hoopes Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon – good, but $75.00 was too much to pay for it I thought. Especially when my favorite Cab was $50.00.
