Forget about Robert Parker, James Suckling, Hugh Johnson, Antonio Galloni, Allen Meadows, Oz Clarke, and even Jancis Robinson and I love Jancis Robinson! The best bang for your appreciation is Gary Vaynerchuk's wine library TV. Although he stopped on March 14th, 2011 at his 1,000th episode, it remains a seminal reference. I have personally watched all 1,000 episodes and have learned a lot from them. What I like most is the irreverent, unpretentious look at wine. Gary has taken all intimidation out of my wine exploration and it may do the same for you. I do not agree with everything he says and some episodes have pissed me off, but like a moth to a flame for me and other Vayniacks , we could not get enough. Gary's best episodes are short and sweet with him tasting wine and referencing everything from sheep butt to Twizzlers and Jolly Ranchers, and his undying love for the Jets!

Here are his best episodes with guests:
