About Wine Library TV
Wine Library TV (www.winelibrary.com) is changing the wine world!  What motivates this revolution, you ask? The movement seeks to break down the barriers, stereotypes, and misperceptions that otherwise prevent people from exploring and enjoying the exciting and rewarding world of wine. Gary Vaynerchuk (VAY NER CHUK), the star of Wine Library TV, is Director of Operations at Wine Library in Springfield, NJ. With his unconventional, often irreverent commentary on wine, Gary has attracted a cult-like following of more than 80,000 viewers a day. In the name of “expanding one’s palate”, Gary convinced Conan O’Brien to lick salted rocks and shared samples of dirt and grass with Ellen Degeneres.  He also released his first book in May of 2008 entitled 101 Wines Guaranteed to Inspire, Delight, and Bring Thunder to Your World.
