Wine and web guru Gary Vaynerchuk poured out 90 minutes of wit and wisdom at Duncan/Channon’s private penthouse lounge last Thursday in a jampacked Toast of the Tip event that included a blind tasting for the entire room. Garyvee, as his 750,000 Twitter followers know him, delivered thoroughly unvarnished, thoroughly entertaining and thoroughly insightful opinions on, for example, the wine industry (“Napa just caters to 50-year-old white men and ignores young people”), the media industry (“The New York Times is out of business”), the future of TV and video watching (“a program called Boxee”) and social media (“The future is here”), while recounting his own colorful path to entrepreneurial success with, among other things, a $45 million retail wine business. At every turn, he proved he is truly a unique figure in whatever world he cares to visit, including ours.
