Taking a trip down memory lane! This is a fun remix of the very first episode of Wine Library TV from 2006, mashed up with our Empathy Wines brand video from 2018. 📽
When Gary first sat down behind the camera for his inaugural wine video 12 years ago (!), he was inspired by the earliest video bloggers, including Ze Frank. YouTube was still in its infancy, but Gary recognized consumer attention would continue shifting to online video. Being there early, and persistently putting out valuable content, was a way to reach underpriced attention and interact with a community of wine lovers. 🍷
In many ways, Empathy Wines is following a similar model. We’ve partnered with amazing grape growers in burgeoning wine regions, where the quality is undervalued, but momentum is shifting. Lodi, Lake County, and Mendocino are not “new” to grape growing, but their quality and potential hasn’t necessarily been realized by the market of wine drinkers. We want to help champion these amazing farming families, shine a light on them, and show to the world how great the vineyards, and people behind them, truly are. Our direct to consumer model is one part of the cost-saving equation for our Empathy Wines drinkers - but we wouldn’t be able to make an incredibly high value bottle of wine without the partnership of @shannonridgewines@mariettavineyards@mariettacellars@bokischvineyards 📸: Shoutout to @danyahaossey for this video edit ✂️ -

Interested in a festive Christmas drink? Let’s talk Mulled Wine! Mulled wine is a beverage usually made with red wine along with various mulling spices and citrus. 🍊🍷 You can enjoy it cold or warmed, now for our favorite mulled wine recipe compliments of @inagarten
4 cups apple cider
1 (750-ml) bottle red wine, such as (LODI)Cabernet Sauvignon
1/4 cup honey
2 cinnamon sticks
1 orange, zested and juiced
4 whole cloves
3 star anise
4 oranges, peeled, for garnish
Combine the cider, wine, honey, cinnamon sticks, zest, juice, cloves and star anise in a large saucepan, bring to a boil and simmer over low heat for 10 minutes. Pour into mugs, add an orange peel to each and serve.
While Tom Ford is always a favorite among our male customers we do have a large variety of brands that carry men’s optical and sunglasses.This Tom Ford frame’s color is a cool blend of black and grey with the signature “T” on the temple in a nice silver! 😎
