A Skype-ly Interlude

Kaz reached through the Interwebs and talks with Randy about how things are going (or went, depending); Randy and X attend a wine conference with some big names and new faces!

Seriously, Kaz gives his first fishing update over Skype, and describes the ongoing process of recession survival for a small family-owned winery in these interesting times.

X and Randy attended the Nomacorc-sponsored (and very well attended) “Marketing to the Next Generation of Wine Drinkers” event held this week at the Culinary Institute of America at Greystone in St. Helena. Tons of new faces, and we talked to several of them!

Also included in the podcast is a little story about Gary V and Cornerstone from a recent Daily Grape episode and subsequent Twitter conversation that illustrates how best to engage your customers and keep it authentic. You’re welcome to watch and decide for yourself. And some excellent news along with a special Skype interview with Thea Dwelle about the Wine Bloggers’ Conference Scholarship!

A Little Slice of 2010

It’s finally our “best of 2010” episode! After agonizing deliberations and countless committee meetings to go over the clips that would be aired, our esteemed judges came up with the following. Make sure to listen and reminisce!

Hey Joe

Joe Roberts (aka 1WineDude.com) visits via Skype and we enjoy some technical difficulties, a bottle of wine, and some interesting and deeper conversation about the importance of Robert M. Parker Jr. and The Wine Advocate.

Altitude Sickness

Kaz and Randy have moved upstairs to the rarefied air of the new Kaz Studios, and boy the view is spectacular! Joe Roberts the 1WineDude phones it in to talk about his experience at the Wine Writers’ Symposium last week in Napa, as well as the Premiere Napa Valley trade auction. And it’s lovingly coated in a healthy dollop of Kaz and Randy, to make it extra delicious!
