On his 1,000th episode, Gary Vaynerchuk announces the end of WineLibraryTV — and the launch of DailyGrape.com. Gary deserves a huge congrats for making it to 1,000 episodes, and I’m definitely excited for what’s in store at DailyGrape.

Elsewhere on the tubes, on MSNBC’s Your Business, Gary V. discusses the importance of social media.

“When Syrah is planted in some of California’s cooler vineyard sites in Sonoma and Mendocino Counties, it is responsible for some of — if not the most — interesting wines being made in the state.” In Eater, a wonderful piece on California Syrah from Talia Baiocchi. The wines of Pax Mahle, Duncan Arnot Meyers and Nathan Roberts, Kevin Kelley, Wells Guthrie, Ehren Jordan, and Andy Peay are discussed.

“In case you haven’t heard the news, kosher wines don’t suck anymore.” So proclaims Mike Steinberger in his latest column on Slate.

Wine tycoon Jess Jackson has “restructured his vast holdings and is turning the Santa Rosa company over to new leadership.”

Dr. Vino joins the chorus – White Burgundy is in trouble. His assesment — “the risks outweigh the rewards” — is damning.
