The dust of well over 500 energetic souls has only just settled. Last Thursday, not an auspicious day of the week for an Event, nevertheless it witnessed the filming of Gary Vaynerchuk’s 500th episode of his celebrated WLTV series before a packed house. When Mr. Vaynerchuk took time to breathe between passionate proclamations the crowd jumped in to further drown out the roar of Hwy 280 traffic streaming nearby. Yours truly and Brandon Miller, writers for this blog, had the pleasure of assisting the good folks at CrushPad, especially Stu Ake and the delightful Hayden Moulds, to make real the evening.
And the evening would not have been complete without the presence of Chris Mott, Gary’s gentleman filmmaker.
Many thanks go out to the excellent wineries who answered my invite to join in the mix.
In no particular order:
To the wineries who either missed the deadline or could not attend: another gathering is planned for late Fall, early Winter.
The official 500th episode may be viewed on WLTV. (Brandon and I make an appearance.)
