Interviewing Winemakers, Old Vines, And… Alpacas

Vinted on May 9, 2012 binned in going pro

So it’s not just you – I really have been popping up all over the place lately.

In what was an odd but fun (there’s a fitting life summary, actually…) stretch for me, I was interviewed several times over the past several days, twice for radio (on WBAL’s The Sipping Point and The Wine Crush with Laura Lawson – embedded below for your listening pleasure, if you consider me rambling about eating insects pleasurable, that is), and my Wined Down column starting running in earnest on Playboy.com.

So if you’re not already sick of me, I thought I’d share some of the video content I’ve been producing for the Wines.com blog.

I’ve had a lot of (odd) fun with that video material, the settings of which have had me interacting with winemakers, 100+ year old vines, and large mountain-dwelling mammals (that last one – understandably – didn’t make the cut for the Wines.com blog, but can still be viewed on their YouTube channel).

Anyway, while I’m dealing with the insane logistics of a rapid turn-around from Colorado to touring a large part of the wine regions spanning Australia (more on that one when I get a chance to poke my on-line head out from Down Undah!), here’s a run-down of the vids I’ve published for them so far, in the hopes that you’ll find some enjoyment out of them (and give me your feedback!):

Me, You And Wines.com, Too

Vinted on February 15, 2012 binned in going pro

I’m happy to announce what most of you reading this already know, which is that I’m now a featured contributor to the video blog on Wines.com. You can check out my first installment, in which I brave the wilderness of my backyard to talk about the brouhaha surrounding the Natural Wine movement.

The idea behind my vid series over at Wines.com is to take the concept I tried out in “simplifying” the world of Port in about 5 minutes of video, and use that compressed-and-pithy format to dissect other aspects of the wine world, wine biz and wine industry. It’s a paying gig – modest, but fun, and it’s great to be working with the team at Wines.com again, who are an amicable (and smart, particularly when it comes to leveraging social media to engage their customers) bunch.

Does this mean fewer episodes of the already-too-infrequent 1WineDude TV?

The short answer is, “yeah, sort of.”

BUT… having said that… the “sort of” part probably needs a bit of embellishment…

Sub-terroir Rhônesick Blues = Awesome

Vinted on November 30, 2009 binned in California wine, winemaking

The video embedded below, featuring Bonny Doon’s irrepressible Randall Grahm, is just… well, it’s just awesome.

Fans of Grahm’s style of humor and his approach to wine-making will no doubt find much to appreciate in this satirical homage to Dylan.  Those of you among our readers who are actually making wine may find some of this cuts so closely and deeply that the humor is bitter-sweet.  Knowing Randall, I’d guess that was partly the intention!

From the video comments:

“The reader may know or be able to infer that I live a somewhat convoluted, self-referential life; that is to say, many of my personal points of reference seem to exist in the realm of vinous and the arcane (generally both). Eliot footnoted The Wasteland; why not to footnote a Bob Dylan song parody about some of the more obscure aspects of winemaking chez Doon?.”

You’ve gotta love this guy; or at least, you’ve gotta respect his gumption.

Special thanks to Meg of MakersTable.com for bringing this one to my attention.  Enjoy!

Cheers!
