The Punch Down Episode One With Eric Asimov

Vinted on December 5, 2012 binned in interviews, The Punch Down

The Punch Down Episode One is in the books!

MUCH thanks and mad props to our first guest Eric Asimov, who braved the wiles of our pilot endeavor, and especially to all of YOU who watched and chimed in during the show. The full geekiness is available for replay in the embed below. I’d love to hear your thoughts on the first go-round (I’m already thinking of several improvements), guest suggestions, and what-have-you.

Mentioned in this episode (among quite a lot of other things!):

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

Vinted on September 13, 2012 binned in 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

1WineDude TV Episode 52: Alexandra Manousakis On The Challenges (and Ironies!) Of Crete’s Modern Wine Biz

Vinted on August 7, 2012 binned in 1WineDude TV, interviews, on the road

In this episode of 1WineDude TV, I talk (on location!) with with Alexandra Manousakis, whose family makes wine from Rhone varieties on the Greek island of Crete. Aside from prettying up things here on 1WDTV, Alexandra gives us an insider’s take on Crete winemaking history, along with her insights on the challenges facing Cretan wine on the international stage. Yes, the cicadas are annoying (believe me, I removed 90% of their noisy asses from the video already!); get over it, and enjoy…
