“You’re Gonna Need A Corkscrew To Gargle”

"I swear to God Walter, if you mention one thing about ‘tannin’ or ‘immature vines’ I’m gonna stick the cork, and the bottle, so far up your ass that you’re gonna need a corkscrew to gargle!"

DAVE from The Winery Channel’s Rant & Roll channel commenting on "Walter the Wine Snob"

One day soon there will be an all wine, all day television cable channel probably located on your dial somewhere between 402 and 430. Until that day comes, however, we’ve got The Winery Channel at http://www.thewinerychannel.tv

The Winery Channel just launched on the web and is striving to deliver a regular bevy of video related to wine.  So far so good.

The Video content is divided up into a variety of different channels. Each presents wine in a different way. "The Source" offers profiles of wineries, Rant & Roll offers rants on wine, Got Wine offers wine from retailers’ perspectives. They are offering 12 different channels of content. It looks quite promising to me.

It all looks quite promising to me. The episodes of the various shows are short enough to be consumed on the fly, the production quality looks just fine and the content is quite good. The only recommendation I’d give them is to include a feedback mechanism for each episode from their various channels. I’m thinking a comment section associated with each video.

Check it out!

    I just stumbled upon this great video of the 2007 Nantucket wine festival.
    Hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
