Young Guys at Wine 2.0

I’ve had an unbelievable two weeks with much good food, hundreds of 1 ounce wine pours, great restaurants, changing cities, cool people and a lot of business. We’ve just touched down in Atlanta and are reflecting on an amazing two weeks and the culmination of it all undoubtedly being Wine 2.0 at Club Sportiva last night.

Stepping out of the virtual world and into the reality of was pretty neat, especially to be in the same room with Gary V., Inertia’s Andrea, Tom Wark, Wine Hiker Russ, Alder Yarrow and everyone else playing in this circle.

G-man and myself were the youngest guys by 5 and 3 years respectively – and that’s not to say that it was an older crowd. If anything, having come from the traditional route of working in on-premise and off-premise sales, everyone in the room was a baby compared to the aging 3-tier crowd. It is inspirational to be in a game that is dominated by young players viagra india.

To listen to the panel last night, it is a relief to hear people who not only understand how to, but have begun to take wine from a prohibitionist era mindset into the 21st Century (where everyone else is.) Gary is leading the charge, Inertia is laying the tracks and Tom Wark has spread the message. The stadium is built and the people will come.

Grape Thinking and people like the dudes at CalWineries are fortunate to be able to start down the path that has been cleared for us. Whilst Bottlenotes, RadCru, Wine Q and Cork’d are doing a good job giving an online platform to the established wine appreciation crew.

It was great to share the same vision with those who have begun to make it happen. There’s space for all of us to be successful – and with so much opposition at every step, we’re going to need all the force we can muster. Having had a great 2 weeks I’d like to take the chance to propose a digital toast to all the young self-starters in the room last night: the future is ours.

    First rule of Wine Club, when you boast about being superior young wine technologists, make sure the websites you run have large bandwidth packages so they remain up – http://www.tastevine.com is currently down. How embarrassing.

    Hello! Good Site! Thanks you! ioltfzyejsry

    Be advised: The Wine Cynic’s legion of followers often too overzealously obfuscate the lines between flattery and imitation. The Cynic is a scientist. A futurist. A Patriot. He is an optimist. He is not a “wine-technologist” and therefore The Cynic bores himself not on issues of bandwidth. Also, The Cynic does not quote or misquote lines from Brad Pitt movies. Boff!
