I don’t always, but now and then I watch Gary Vaynerchucks notorious web-show. If the topic isn’t too interesting, Gary’s hectic kind of passion gets a bit on my nerves but sometimes I’m just caught up by the nice bottles or the guests on his show.
I especially liked this show with Michael Madrigale. First, because his story of how he got in touch with wine and became a professional is very enjoyable and second because of these amazing BIG BOTTLES! It’s true and especially for whites: big bottles keep the wine more fresh while still gaining in elegance when they age. I had a magnum of Kiedricher Gräfenberg Riesling recently that proved it to me. And now I’m thinking of changing my purchase policy. It just makes so much sense for the enjoyment of wine. Not only for the quality, but also for the idea of sharing it with friends and loved ones!
