    Tinta roriz is tempranillo my man, not touriga. Nice to bring that unkown grape to the forefront though! btw-can’t believe you said “pop the cherry” on the show…

  • Allan

    You know what, i believe you. 😛

    5 minute videos are cool, but only if you do one everyday, or every other day. But if you’re only planning on posting one video a week I would say to stick to the 30 minute type videos.

  • Personally I like more than 1 wine so that there is some comparison going on between wines. But that’s just me.

    1 or 2 shows a week leaves us wanting more. The shorter format is ok as long as we get a (semi) daily dose. Maybe you should check into Mott or another Wine Library celeb filling in for you when you can’t tape a show? (Kind of like Johnny Carson and his substitute hosts?) Anyway, just letting you know I miss a fresh few minutes of Gary every day 🙂

    Happy Birthday, Sasha!!

    Check this out GV, wine fed beef….

  • Anonymous

    Yeah!!! Awesome!
    One wine a day would be cool but do some killer well organized content. Otherwise the old four wine Gary we all love is cool.

  • Allan

    Well, this wasn’t the most exciting week in WLTV history, that’s for sure…. 😛

    GV will be back strong next week, have a great weekend all true Vayniacs…..!

  • This was on our news too! Wonder how good the beef tastes!

  • THUNDER IS COMING !!! NExt WEEK I will rip your FACES OFF!

  • John__J

    I’m psyched Gary, but maybe going 10 min an episode would be nice. Split the difference tween a short and a long and give us 2 wines w a lot of info on them instead of 1.

  • John__J

    qotd: Vintage and Colheita Port’s.

  • Anonymous

    Hi Gary, agree with John J. Red and white from one region. Short intro about the place and take your time for the adjektives !
    love SEb

  • I think this show is really fun and educational but also not really the reason I watch wine library tv. I think it’s fine that you are trying to expand our knowledge but I can also tell that you are trying very hard. I don’t like being able to tell that you’re trying hard to teach us. I like when you just speak your mind.

    QOTD Response: Topless Beaches 🙂

  • no, why?

  • i promise!

  • Jared Levy

    I think it may just be a habit of yours, but when you’re rattling off your fantastic wine knowledge, you tend to look to the right of the camera, which makes it look like you’re reading tidbits about the wine/region/grape off a piece of paper or something to that effect. I must say, the thought came up in my head as well.

    I kind of just discover you online while studying some wines, wanting to know more, love wine Malbec, Brunello de Montalcino, Tempranillo, but also love whites Sauvignon Blanc Pinot Grigio a Gris and now i want to try Encruzado, I am kind of fan of wines from Spain, Argentina, Australia…. What is amazing is that in the last 3 days I watch around 80 Episodes is almost 4 in the morning and my son was telling me that i in my laptop with headphones since noon watching the shows, learning a lot but also having a great time!!! Love it!!! Born in the same month same year and a scorpion, passion passion passion!!!! If you can I know is not wine but you could do a show about Pisco (is grape no???) but it have to be from Peru… I am a FAN!!!

    That was a good quick format to learn. QOTD – I like port and visiting port lodges in Porto.

  • NY Pete

    post padder … 😛 😛 😛


    Since it’s been a while without a show I got a chance to watch the documentary about BMXer Matt Hoffman The Birth of Big Air. It’s fascinating though difficult to watch him endure all those injuries. He’s an orthopaedic surgeon’s nightmare with all those spills he’s taken over the years. After watching 30 for 30, I saw a short documentary on Anna Sharapova, a fellow Belarusian, which focused on her father Yuri’s efforts to get her to a place where she could develop her tennis talent. You should have Yuri Sharapov on the show as he’s got a great story of survival when he first came to America with seven year old Anna. It reminded me of Sasha and all the hustling he did to get established in America.

    You keep looking to your lower right, like you were reading from notes.

    Not sayin’ you don’t know Everything about Every wine…

    just bustin’

    Keep up the good work, we appreciate it, even when we complain, ad nauseum…

  • Thank u

  • QOTD: Luis Figo

    There are several quality affordable Portuguese wines available.

  • My favorite thing about portugal is the tremendous value vinho verdes and a nice good porto in the winter time : ) your the man gary had great time at your wine party in the city and meeting you, class act, cant wait hear you on sirius

  • Hello Gary,

    Just to make a correction: Touriga Nacional is not Tempranillo
    In Portugal Tempranillo is called Aragonez.

    Love your show

    Lisbon Portugal

  • Tempranillo is known as Tinta Roriz in the Douro Valley region of Portugal.

    Comment #1: What? You just had several single wine, 5 minute types of shows. I guess Mott posted them out of order for some reason.

    Comment #2: While I like the format in general, I will give you my standard answer about WLTV – varierty. Please do these, do brown bags, do interviews, do “regular” 3-4 wine shows, do themes – just keep mixing it up.

    QOTD: Since I’ve never been to Portugal, I guess my favorite thing would have to be Vintage Port.

    I’m happy, ’cause i’m a drinkin’ one of the great great great QPR bottles of New World Riesling out there, and i’m blown away by 2008 Cono Sur Reserva Riesling from Bio Bio Valley. (The one with the bicycle).

    SEEK OUT. It’s difficult to score….. 95p. Hey, It’s GREAT! 😛

  • My comment was not fully loaded

    Tempranillo is called Aragonez in Alentejo and Tinta Roriz in Douro.
    Touriga Nacional is a portuguese grape.

    Cheers for all
