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: IPhone – no; IPad – no, but WANT!

    I have had that chinon a couple of times already and have to agree 100% with your thoughts…for the money I plan on getting 4-6 bottles next time instead of the one I usually buy. I waited for years for the iPhone to get off AT&T but made the leap and bought the HTC EVO from Sprint back in June and LOVE it! That said, I am an Apple guy all the way other than phones.

    I love getting your tasting notes on wines as I have found that of all the known ‘wine guys’ out there that your palate and mine are closest.

  • CKC!!! Virginia Tech LUVS YOU!!! Super exited to go to a South African wine and food pairing tonight for our awesome Geography of Wine class 🙂

    #CKC You’ll visit with 5 or 6 comments from the same college you say? I think Virginia Tech should have cemented a visit by now – we’re blowing up the comments.

    You do great work, sir. Always enjoy the show.

    CKC – In Geography of Wine class the other day we were talking about how awesome it would be if you came down and talked to us *nudge nudge* Hope your book tour finds its way down here at Virginia Tech! Love your videos btw, answer to your question: I don’t have the iphone or ipad sorry

    You know you did say 5 or 6 comments should be enough for a visit…VT definitely has enough. I look forward to seeing you in the Blacksburg area. By the way, on April 30th there is a “Fork and Cork” Wine Festival in Blacksburg, which could make for an interesting show. You know you want to try some Virginia wines…

  • CKC-surely VT and Boyer’s wine class have solidified a serious look into a trip to Blacksburg, it would be great to have you down here! Love the show, and look forward to your visit.

    CKC – Prof. Boyer has secured 500 viewers for you this semester alone not to mention all his past semesters of teaching Geography of Wine with you as our host. We even have weekly quizzes on your videos. If not for the tons of students such as myself who would love to get a visit from you, I think you at least owe it to him to come down to Virginia Tech. And to answer your question: I have neither an iphone nor an ipad.

  • Gary – another VT CKC kid here. Your videos are awesome! A few of my classmates come to my apartment every Sunday to watch your videos and do his weekly quizzes. My girlfriend (who’s not in the class) got hooked when she stopped by to pick up her bag and now she’s a dedicated viewer. I love the videos – they’re very informative and I’m hooked. Thanks for the hard work and I hope to see you at VT.
