For anyone who already knows who Gary Vaynerchuk is, the title of this post will be a not-so-subtle homage to his mission of changing the wine world whether they like it or not.
Here at the office, we’re big fans of his show, Wine Library TV.
Gary’s intro sets the tone from the word go. He warns Gretzky before the start of Episode #660, “careful, I’m about to get real loud“. One might respond, no lie, no lie.
Gary’s got a fantastic take on wine tasting. Whether it’s describing a wine as “fresh catcher’s mitt” or “dark, no moon, in a cave, I’m scared, kinda dark”, his illustrations get the experience of wine across to people in a way that’s easy to understand. But, not dumbed down. There’s play in there as well, always good. He takes the burden off of understanding wine in a more meaningful way.
Here at Indicee, we’re all about increasing understanding so we thought we would have some fun with Gary’s Ratings Spreadsheet. “Vayniac” Chris Stanisci (SS Chris) created and maintains the spreadsheet that details all of the wine tasted on the show with rating. (Based on my understanding of the numbers, you’ll generally want something high 80′s or above.)
I uploaded the spreadsheet into Indicee and managed to generate the following reports on a lark.
Then, with the help of Scott Pledger, our new VP of Marketing, we came up with a value calculation.
Gary’s Score / Price = Value Score
And lastly, here’s a report showing the PRICIEST wines that have been on the show.
Gary’s at the big South by Southwest (#SXSW) Conference this weekend in Austin. We’re sorry to be missing the party down there, but maybe these reports can be our contribution. I’m sure the information contained could make for a good conversation!
And a big shout out to SS Chris for being the Spreadsheet Jockey on this! Good on ya! But, we do gotta talk about Data Quality at some point. Ping me. There’s a ton of potential to generate more reports, but we need to clean up the Data. Don’t make me unleash the DataFlux crew on you. Maybe we can farm out some of the grunt work for you.
