Last week I had the pleasure of meeting renowned wine guy, Gary Vaynerchuk, at the Tattered Cover on Colfax on his book signing tour for his newest book The Thank You Economy. If you are a small business owner, work for a large corporation, are in the service industry, or just have a regular 9 to 5, you need to read this book. Heck, even if you aren’t working (or are in school), read this book. More importantly, buy it. Gary has some fine nuggets to share about the current business landscape we are currently living in, and you will learn stuff. But what does this have to do with wine, or Denver?
Many internet-savvy folks know Gary from Wine Library TV, which showcases different wines and offers a fresh, honest opinion on bouquets (sniffy-sniffs), tastes, and price points so we can seek out what we actually enjoy versus being told what to drink. I happen to love this approach, because before Gary, I was drinking boring Pinot Grigio and Cabernet that I told myself I liked but actually hated.
His new project, Daily Grape, offers a shorter, “daily version” that is available via app so you can learn about the world’s most versatile fruit and your favorite wines on the go. Here he is, talking about Colorado wines, kicking a little knowledge about our recovering wine industry, and really enjoying a local wine from his Denver hotel room last Thursday.
We’d love him to do more Colorado wine reviews on Daily Grape or WLTV. What wines do you think Gary absolutely must try?
