Late last week, I stumbled upon the above video from, an online wine show that I found very interesting, charming even.

Sure, I was mostly interested because I saw three Finger Lakes rieslings on the table in front of them — Dan and Chas that is. But what I liked most was that they seemed like two people very much like myself. Sure, they are clearly wine enthusiasts, geeks maybe. But at the same time, they are real people with real, honest passion for fermented grape juice.

They aren't hawking wine for a wine shop. The videos are simple and straightforward. These are the kinds of guys I'd like to hang out with I think.

Anyway, I thought it was worth sharing, even if it's a bit longer than I'd usually post.

And, after emailing with Dan a few times, I can safely say that you'll see some more New York coverage from these guys. We're already talking about swapping some New York wine from my cellar for some Oregon wine from their cellars. Should be fun.
