1WineDude.com TV Episode 56: Portugal’s Best Wines? (With Master Wine Geek Doug Frost)

Vinted on February 7, 2013 under 1WineDude TV, interviews, wine industry events, wine review

Welcome to a rather long-overdue episode of 1WD TV, in which I get geeky with wine maven Doug Frost and give him crap about the wines he *didn’t* pick for his list of Portugal’s 50 Greatest Wines. We express communal love for Madeira, and then Doug sort of disses Napa, but generally shows why he’s one of the most well-regarded wine educators and tasters on the planet. To find out why Doug’s picks are so controversial, fire up the vid!

1WineDudeTV Episode 56: Portugal’s Best Wines? (With Master Wine Geek Doug Frost)

I was able to get a few minutes with Doug when I was a media guest of Wines of Portugal for a lunch event at NYC’s Harold Pratt House, during which Doug and fellow Master Sommelier Evan Goldstein discussed the Top 10 wines from Doug’s list of 50 – which we then tasted paired with various (mostly meat – in fine Portuguese tradition!) courses.  My thoughts/ratings/ramblings on those controversial top ten wine picks are below, after the jump…

1WineDude.com TV Episode 55: No Apologies!

Vinted on November 6, 2012 under 1WineDude TV, wine appreciation

Some brief wine advice for those who feel the need to apologize for wines that they enjoy drinking, but that for whatever reason make them “feel” uncultured. Bottom line: the only person to whom you owe an apology for your choice in wines is yourself, but only because you doubted your own tastes for even a minute!

1WineDude.com TV Episode 54: The Gina Gallo Interview (Tasting Through Gallo’s Signature Series Recent Releases)

Vinted on September 13, 2012 under 1WineDude TV, crowd pleaser wines, interviews, on the road, wine review

Wanna get inside the head of one of THE most powerful people in the entire wine world? Start watchin’ already – because that’s exactly what we do with Gina Gallo in today’s episode of 1WD TV.

1WineDude.com TV Episode 54: The Gina Gallo Interview

[ Editors note: For those not totally up on the current events in the love lives of the wine world’s richest-and-most-famous, part of the vid might get a bit confusing; Gina is married to Jean-Charles Boisset, scion to the largest negociant business in Burgundy and a man best described as a charming whirling dervish and with whom Gina has recently sired twin baby girls. Incidentally, JCB makes me look like I’m standing still, which those who know me will understand isn’t all that easy to do! ]

I caught up with Gina at the 2012 Sonoma Wine Country Weekend’s Taste of Sonoma event, and we talk about what it takes to get motivated to work when you’re so rich that you could have somebody killed and buried at the bottom of the Russian River and not have anyone ever know a thing about it.

If you’re interested in what that wine we were drinking in the video was like, by the way, read on

Wine Blogging Monetization (1WineDude TV Episode 53, The #WBC12 Edition)

Vinted on August 22, 2012 under 1WineDude TV, wine bloggers conference, wine blogging

Last weekend, I sat on a panel at the 2012 Wine Bloggers Conference in Portland, OR, discussing wine blog monetization – what works, what doesn’t, and what you need to consider to monetize both your blog’s website and your blog’s brand.

Below is a video that I recorded in Santa Barbara wine country just prior to flying to Portland for the conference, and you can treat it as the expanded version of the talk that I gave at WBC12 (for those who were there, I told you that you wouldn’t have to take notes!). Want to know what I’ve learned about making money in the wild west territory of the ever-changing online wine world? Have a seat and take a view.
