Gonzo wine entrepreneur and breakout video blog star Gary Vaynerchuk shares his encyclopedic knowledge and irreverent point of view in this timely and comprehensive overview of the vintners and vintages that are creating a revolution in the wine world.
Wine Library TV's Gary Vaynerchuk travels the globe tasting wines and making new discoveries that he shares bottle-by-bottle with an eager national audience via his hugely popular video blog posts and e-mail newsletters. Since the 2006 launch of his site he has rated hundreds of wines and earned a cult-like following of fans. Gary avoids the pomposity and pretense of traditional wine education, focusing instead on helping average people to develop their palates and better enjoy wine-even if that means tasting potting soil and sniffing dirty socks! A Jim Cramer for the wine world, his enthusiasm, youthful energy, unique voice, and lively descriptions such as "cotton candy," "gasoline," or "Cocoa Puffs(r)" may seem outrageous, but resonate vividly with readers. Just ask any "Vayniac"-one of the tens of thousands of devoted viewers who select and taste wine based on the principles that Gary espouses.
Now, Gary unveils his first list of favorites and recommendations in Gary Vaynerchuk's 101 Wines. Gary's wine picks for 2008 span many prices, nations, grapes, and styles, ensuring that wine novices and sophisticated oenophiles alike will expand their wine horizons while learning more about the drink they love. Whether building a wine collection, picking out a special gift, or just hunting for a good bottle to go with tonight's dinner, every wine identified in Gary Vaynerchuk's 101 Wines represents a lesson in a glass, complete with the technical notes, availability, and story behind the vintage and flavors brought to life as only Gary knows how.
