The latest OSU grape newsletter (Le Vigneron) is now available here:

In this issue is the recap of the Fresno trip as relayed by my colleague Mark Chien from Penn State, results from a black rot trial from Damon Smith, and various other goodies — enjoy.

I also recently learned that social wine guru Gary Vaynerchuk will now have a program on Sirius/XM, the details are here:

Gary is launching a new show on Sirius/XM, “Wine & Web with Gary Vaynerchuk” (Thursdays, 10pm – midnight ET SIRIUS XM Stars Too SIRIUS 108, XM 139).

I find Gary to be humorous and entertaining.  I also thinks he tends to overdo his wine analyses, so to me he is more entertainment than substance but might be worth a listen.
