I feel sure I ran across this site some weeks ago but failed to mention it (so thanks Kevin for the reminder)… Wine Library TV is a daily video show covering wine tastings. Broadcast in Quicktime format the show is hosted by a passionate chap (if slightly annoying) Gary Vaynerchuk. Recent broadcasts have covered Swiss wines, Barolo and Brunello and Californian Zinfandel. Comments and questions can be left on the site. All good stuff and while entertaining the videos are linked to wines for sale in the Wine Library store; although Gary was honest enough to mention that the Swiss wine he was promoting was perhaps overly expensive to the tune of $5. You have to ask why other wine retailers do not do something similar on their sites to promote their products; it certainly beats a hastily scribbled tasting note barker.
UPDATE: what is the biggest annoyance to bloggers? Spam, exactly. While one of the best aspects is the community feel. So ‘Kevin’ when you email the worlds wine-bloggers with the same dumb-arsed link info did you not think you would be found out? We can only assume you have a connection with Wine Library and are trying to drive traffic and thus sales through your on-line store. [See comments on Wine Amateur]. I have removed the links to the site from the original post and no longer recommend anyone visits.
