I loved this video. And I thought I went too far by recommending sucking a wet teabag in my wineconsumer.com article!

I don't know, I thought he didn't come off all that well. More of a gimmick-artist than a wine professional, and I doubt that he inspired people to begin to learn about wine. I would say that Conan did more in that way than Gary did. I, though, should not be confused with some one who understands anything about entertainment and what it is that the masses of this country want to see, eat, drink, or do. I never get it right...

I think Gary did himself a disservice with his antics on the show. Kind of sets wine education back a bit by having to resort to eating dirt and cigars in order to "train your palate." Weird and a little disgraceful.

I never realized Gary was a little person.
Conan was HILARIOUS!
I guess I should just suck on my socks and ingest pure ethanol instead of drinking Burgundy.

I've always thought Gary, who has the shorter man's huge ego, offers little insight to the enjoyment of wine. People who watch Conan have no interest in descriptors. It was a parody of wine appreciation. Give me the husband and wife team who write the Friday wine column in the Wall Street Journal. They do so much for spreading the good word without jargon.
