Wacky wine guy

Gary Vaynerchuk can come off like the Dick Vitale of wine …

“Since February 2006, Vaynerchuk, who co-owns with his father a cavernous wine shop called Wine Library in Springfield, N.J., has been hosting a daily video blog devoted to wine education. It is called Wine Library TV, but it plays like Wine Geek Gone Wild: The 31-year-old Vaynerchuk, a native of Belarus sadly besotted with the New York Jets (his ambition in life is to own the club), brings a hyperkinetic style to the normally dry business of judging syrahs and merlots.”

That’s from the Slate profile, a pretty good read.

Here’s Vaynerchuk at his loudest, and here’s a less-intense but still strongly opinionated tasting piece that I really liked.
