“Sheep butt, cow poop”: A man after our own hearts, Gary Vanynerchuk, on wine & web at the Tip


Not content to refer to the classic “barnyard” aroma of an old Burgundy, gonzo wine/web phenom Gary Vaynerchuk feels compelled to spell it all out: “a little sweaty sock, sheep butt, cow poop…”

That’s a sommelier we’ll listen to.

And now we’ll get that chance, in person, at D/C’s July 23 Toast of the Tip, where the “first wine guru of the YouTube era,” New Jersey’s irrepressible Mr. V., will be uncorking unvarnished opinions, unique observations and slightly cracked apercus on the joys of vino and the power of the social media that has catapulted him onto Conan O’Brien, the pages of the Wall Street Journal and the top of the Internet heap. Date: July 23. Place: The Tip (on 15), Duncan/Channon’s private “sheep-butt” tasting room.
