I hate recording all the shows for the week in one day, because I want to be able to mention current events and pop culture. If Madonna punches Britney in the face today, I want to reference that on 'Wine Library TV' tomorrow. Monday's episode is always the best, because it's hot off the press.

Some suggestions for you :

The Loire Valley is grossly underestimated. The prices are fair, and the wines are real.

I am wired like a CEO and care a great deal about the bottom line, but I care about my customers even more than that. That's always been my competitive advantage.

The chef that grew up with the grandma who cooks tends to always beat the chef that went to the culinary institute. It's in the blood.

As much as I love crisp, clean whites, there's always a time for rich but balanced Chardonnays with oak, especially at Thanksgiving.

When I was 17 or 18 I wanted to become a wine expert, and my parents wouldn't let me drink. So I was devastated. All I could do was read, and I read and I read. And I'd read something like, you know, 'Subtle hints of cassis.'

I want people to know their palate is a snowflake. We all like different things. Why should we all have the same taste in wines?

Best wine if you're stranded on a deserted island? 1982 Salon Champagne.

Without hustle, talent will only carry you so far.

One of my biggest flaws is I don't take advice.

I don't want anybody to not recognize how appreciative I am of the volume of e-mails I get.

I think the acquisition of consumers might be on the verge of being mapped. The battlefield is going to be retention and lifetime value.

Do you know how many companies have wanted me to do an energy drink for them because I named my book 'Crush It!'? It might be fun one day, but right now I think it would undermine the personal brand I've built.

I love people, and the hustle.

Storytelling is the game. It's what we all do. It's why Nike is Nike, it's why Apple is Apple, it's why Walt Disney built Disney World and it's why Vince McMahon makes a billion dollars.
