2010 Chateau Grand Village
A sleeper of the vintage, this wine from the Guinaudeau family (the proprietors of Lafleur) may well be the best I have tasted from them. A blend of 75% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc, the wine is more opulent and concentrated than previous vintages. With powerful kirsch and black raspberry fruit notes intermixed with hints of underbrush and licorice, this beauty should drink nicely for 5-6 years.
Rating: 89 Estimated Cost: $16-$25

2011 Weiser Kunstler Riesling Feinherb Price: $20 ABV: 6.5%-10.5% Rating: 90pts Verdict: Buy! Riesling is very culty. Back in 08-09 when I’d gotten a bit of fame in wine, I would talk to regular people and totally blow their minds when I told them that wine nerds totally thought Riesling is the best thing in the whole world...
I was having dinner the other day with a buddy of mine and I was talking about how Rafael Nadal is underrated. He started laughing and said, “how can Raphael Nadal be underrated? He’s so rated!”
A lot of people have been talking about quantity versus quality of content. My question is ‘Why not both?’ Here’s a link to Scott Monty’s blog that I mentioned. – So about 10-14 times a week, I get an email, or someone stops me in the street – literally – and says “Gary you always talk about working so much. The hustle. All the hours you need to put in. Well hey man, I know working hard is great, but I work smart. That’s why I’m going to win just as much.” And I always say to them, “Why not both?” Why not working smart all the time and hustling? Because the people who really crush are doing that. You’re working smart and hard. Why not both?
As a manager, the more you have to do, the fuller your bucket gets. Make sure to empty your bucket from time to time to keep it from overflowing. – Over the last couple of months (actually more like a year and a half), I’ve been really heads down building VaynerMedia, my agency and taking it from a 30 to a 250 person agency. And it’s very predicated on young people. And one of the things that really excites me is the mentorship I’ve been able to do. I’ve been using an analogy lately – because I have so many 25, 26, 32 year old managers – about how to handle the pressure. Because the pressure is really the issue…
So I’ve been spending a lot of time thinking about why I’m not angel investing as much lately, and I think there’s a conversation there that I’d like to talk about and bring into our space. And the title of that is: I can’t code, and you can’t sell crap.
People often ask me how I stay on top of tech. It’s literally one of the top three or four questions I get at Q&As when I give talks. It’s always like “well, how do you stay on top of it? There’s so much going on!”
Here is part-two of my list of up-and-comers to be following on Twitter. Who did I miss? Let me know what you think!
I’m going to put together a list for you once in a while, maybe once a month, a certain number of people I think you should be following, because Twitter is a really easy way to follow people and get a lot of great content.
This was an Interview I gave to New media Rockstars conducted by Benny Luo Posted by Benny Luo on Friday, April 12, 2013 · I first discovered Gary Vaynerchuck back in 2008 when my friend shared a YouTube video recording of one of his famous talks at Web 2.0 Expo NY. I was immediately drawn into his energy, charisma and knowledge in building a successful online business. Gary’s rise began when he recognized the importance of e-commerce and took his $3 million a year family business in 1997 and turned it into $45 million a year one by 2005. He has been featured on “The Ellen Show” and “Late Night with Conan O’Brien,” and is a two-time New York Times best-selling author. He also currently owns a successful social …
So, knowing that I have a lot of young fans, this may not resonate, but for all of you "older peeps" like me that are lucky enough to have two children…
