Good Wine-Samaritans, a letter to you on the fundamental differences between Winetology and Wine Library.
By now, you surely know about Mr. Vaynerchuck of Wine Library. Gary Vee is by all accounts, and there are many, good at what he does. What he does: he spreads the word about wine in his own wine-iscious way through his distinct personality That personality is aptly described by The New Oxford American Dictionary as: “showing or giving emphasis; expressing something forcibly and clearly.” This definition refers to the word emphatic. Mr. Vaynerchuk is emphatic in regards to wine.
Jonny Cigar, of Winetology, is more “showing or characterized by complete sincerity and commitment.” In other words, wholehearted. Not only is Mr. Cigar, myself, wholehearted, he is “characterized by quick and inventive verbal humor,” or witty, and not only witty, but also, emphatically witty, or rather, confident and paramount in his humor, or rather precise and smart, simply put, brilliant. In other words, different? Sure. Now, good reader, I am humbled by your faithfulness to read the written word, the word of Jonny Cigar, here under the wine meanderings of Jonny Cigar. For it is here that you will learn to be your own judge, to trust your own palate, through the inquiries you make, at your own pace, without anyone punching you in the teeth with numbers or with ideas of what you ought to drink. Still, would I write about something you oughtn’t drink? Sure I would, because you deserve it.
