Wine Expert Unleashed

Wine Library TV’s Gary Vaynerchuk

This weeks FMU shirt sighting was at a very well known wine experts web show. I first met Gary Vaynerchuk in Las Vegas during the Affiliate Summit West 2008. He was on a panel for video and the internet. It was rather interesting. Before that I had never heard of him, but I could tell he was passionate about whatever he spoke about. We later met in the hallway when he saw I was wearing a Chad Pennington Jets jersey (Poor Chad…that’s for a whole other post).

I recently sent him an FMU shirt and he wore it during one of his Wine Library TV shows. It looks awesome! It doesn’t stop amazing me how down to earth this guy can be. He has tons of things going on, but still manages to respond to individual emails, tweets, and annoyances like requests to send a picture wearing a shirt (I’m guilty). He took my request a step further and wore the shirt during a filming. Pretty cool, huh?


Aside from running a million dollar business, touring the world, appearing on national television shows, having a family, and changing the wine world, he has a blog at Gary Vaynerchuk dot com. Like most of his Wine Library TV shows, he is extremely passionate on his personal video blogs. I’m not a fan of wine, but I watch Gary’s shows anyway. I think I can watch him talk about anything. Maybe we can get him to tell us, from his opinion, the health benefits of wine. Wink, wink Mr. Vaynerchuk…

Thanks Gary. Keep changing the wine world!

If you would like a Fat Man Unleashed shirt don’t hesitate to buy one. If you see anyone with a Fat Man Unleashed shirt let me know by leaving a comment or sending me an email. You can even take a picture of it and send to me (with the persons permission of course). I’m interested in knowing!!

  1. Cool sighting… That guy is big time from what I read other places (not sure where now), very cool

    I don’t think you have the whole wine-taster look on you.
    Be a pizza-taster!

  3. Good on him, top effort. And a bit of wine (but not binging) is good for us as well. Has plenty of antioxidants to keep us young…and Gary looks to be in fine form

    I’m pretty sure this was the guy who was on Conan a while back and he gave some pretty nice tips on what wine goes well with certain food (even hot dogs!). I’m not a wine guy (I love beer) so I don’t specifically remember any of the names.

      Sure was. He has been all over the place, television, web sites. He is a pure marketing genius (or a damn lucky one).
