    Thanks for the great tips on these wines. I love the fact that I can go oout and find these wines in the store still. Keep of the grape work. P

    This was an awesome, awesome episode. I loved all the detail that the winemakers gave regarding their wines. I love CdP wines and feel like I knew quite a bit about the area but I learned so much from this episode. KEEP DOING THESE KIND OF SHOWS. And thank you.

    I completely agree with Jeff….please keep doing these seminar shows, I absolutely LOVE, LOVE, LOVE them. For someone who can’t always afford to get to seminars like the ones at HdR these recordings are invaluable. I can’t thank you enough and ask that you bring us more! Like the videos too, but I will say that the “montage” videos from VinExpo were jarring….the motion and speed were overwhelming, and I didn’t like them at all! Thanks guys!

    Strange. Some people like the seminars, others find them boring. I would rather post them as ask those that do not like them to just skip it.

    p.s I am biased, I learn something every time I listen to a seminar.
