Lines of the day – ‘I literally want you to take a bell pepper, turn it into a boxing glove and punch me in the face’ and ‘If this was the 1960’s Mott would be smoking a lot of pot and I still wouldn’t be talking about Merlot.’

Great show, GV absolutely on point and pumped full of energy. This is what WLTV is all about

  • QOTD: I have an iphone, waiting for the next ipad before deciding whether to get an ipad or other tablet

    I’m a new watched of your show and enjoying it. Have you done anything on Virginia wines? I may be biased being surrounded by a bunch of Virginia vineyards, but I really think there are a lot of good wines being made here.

  • QOTD: No to either! Still rocking a flip phone but I do sport an iTouch

    Hey-o, appreciate the shout out. Used to not have the underscore in the old comments… needed in Disqus. Anyway, I’ll keep leaving comments if you keep making shows!

    Mott, stay away from the Pot!

    QOTD – no, I don’t have either.

    qotd: nope

  • QOTD – Nope, neither.

    But I have to give a shout out to the CKCs from University of Wisconsin-Madison. Nice touch with the belt, BTW. It was a fun weekend out here.

  • let me translate the lable for you:

    Mooiplaas = Beautiful Farm
    Langtafel = Long tabel

    Your Pronunciation was a bit out but we will still get there Gary

  • QOTD: No.
    CKC, if you can call a 32 yr old that. Cal State, Fresno!

  • Hi Gary, your pronunciation of Mooiplaas Langtafel is hilarious πŸ™‚
    If you just say Long table you are close.
    Strange name for a wine

    QOTD: Yes

  • Anonymous

    QOTD: no i-anything, yet. Maybe someday. I’m leaning toward getting a low-end Android tablet first.

    Like the value-oriented shows, Gary!

    OQTD: nope, nada. Got an old I-Pod (which was a gift actually). Lately I tend to be more and more anti-apple. I more looking for smth like Samsung Galaxy or HTC.
    Love the show, keep it up!

    QOTD: Got an iPad and iPhone. Love to watch you after work at the local wine bar. Love the show

  • I dont have iAnything. I worked for a company right out of college that was a marketing genius. It was the markleting that now fueled the sales, not the product quality. I guess I imediately resist anytime I feel I’m being marketed to.

    Love the show though Gary, so I dont mind branding. Is it true there may be a TV show whith a character based on you?

    I’d watch.

  • QOTD: Have iPad, getting iPhone on Verizon soon!

    Have an iphone. Been begging you to make an iphone app for years Gary! You know this!

    GV – I am on board with you man…I feel your revived energy and I dig it! Can you dig it! I can dig it!

    QOTD: I don’t have an iPhone or an iPad…I’ma sucka!

    no neither, droid is where its at !

  • Finally, get to a PC that I can leave remarks on here. I am watching the shows at work during lunch, but something is up there and wont let me post comments!

    First of all, aghhh. ITs hard being a steelers fan and seeing all this stuff about the packers. But, they were the best team, and truly deserve it.

    I cant believe that you didnt watch all the superbowl. If not to at least to root on the packers. Watched gossip girl instead of the bowl? I am sorry, but I am going to have to put a check mark against your man card for that one πŸ™‚ haha. I know, so bummed about the Jets loosing. Still, Gossip girl?? πŸ™‚ its all good.

    THe chinon has me interested. ITs an area I really want to get into in wine, and havent found much of. THe bell pepper boxing glove. Yeah, I need to find something like that. It sounds aweome!

    QOTD: My wife has the iphone. We have an itouch somewhere. But the 4 year old “forgot” where he left it. At least I KNow its in our house somewhere. Kids, I love em !!

    WHen are we gonna see the laid back couch again???

    QOTD: No, and no. I do have an iPod, so I can have tunes with me wherever I go, which is a good deal more important than having a phone or computer.

    My wife and I are sucking down our third bottle of vino and I’m posting this from my iPhone. She also has an iPhone and I’ll be buying an ipad when the new one comes out in April. Watching a ton if your shows via Podcast on Apple TV. One of the major reasons we got Apple TV was to watch you together on the big screen.

    We’ve saying for months that ep 1000 should be related to your favorite episode. Get Robert Parker in Studio WLTV. It would be a classic episode that would bring together old and new world wine critique.

  • Hey Gary

    QOTD: iphone = no way!!!! 1. They are such a gignic. 2. I hate touch screens; don’t trust them and they always break. 3. I hate the itunes platform for listening to music. 4. My experience of Apple products in the past (ipods) is that they break very easily; bad quality. 5. I don’t want 24 hour internet access – I spend too much time on the computer as it is.


  • QOTD: No to either.

  • laurensNL

    QOTD: No Ipad but going to get an Iphone!

  • QOTD: No Iphone/Ipad. Very nice show!

  • QOTD Iphone. I love it. Have had it since 2008, I could never go back. I am definitely going to buy up an ipad as soon as my powerbook dies (8 years running wooooot)

    #CKC Yes, I am part of the CKC. I am at McGill in Montreal.

    Thanks for the value play episode Gary. I am getting pumped for my birthday. March 1st. I think I am going to get a nice Rib Steak and enjoy a Meritage. Any other recommendations for a 26th birthday wine that a College kid can splurge on?

  • QOTD: I don’t have an iPhone or an iPad…nor is it likely that I will be acquiring a version of either one any time in the near future. [However, I do have an iPod nano, for whatever that’s worth.]

    Take care, and
    Ciao for now.

    QOTD: No, but I am trying to decide whether to get one now that Verizon is carrying them, or to wait for 4G

    QOTD, yes I have the IPad and love it. CKC….Purdue class of 2012

  • K is for Kate

    I don’t have an iPhone or an iPad and am unlikely to ever purchase either. I am not a fan of touch screens, so I stick with BlackBerry and their well-designed keyboards. If I were to ever be won over to the touch screen side, it would probably be Android that would do it.

    You remind me of the guy from Wedding Crashers who is living with his mother, screeming:

    Mooooom Meatloaf!

    You rule!

    Haha the outakes are great. And love how you are genuine, GV, talking about your thought process with pushing Chinon (free shipping). Good energy, exciting stuff. Excited to get to #1000. Excellent episode with Mr. JS! Big street cred baby!

    QOTD: No and No. Droid all the way! Although thinking of getting an ipad…

    Hi gary,

    your shows continue to amaze, entertain, and educate me. I could easily blow away an hour watching your many episodes. Please keep up the tremendous work even though I am a die-hard NE Patriots fan!!

    I do NOT own an IPhone or an IPad.

    QOTD: Nope. Them things are way too rich for my budget.

    And speaking of budget: 2009 Domaine du Tariquet Classic Ugni Blanc-Colombard: $10
    Really nice acidity, bright and refreshing. Find it, drink it!
