Some of my favorite Dans — one I worked with and one I haven’t yet — made a clever little social wine site called Cork’d about a year ago. Just a few days ago they sold it to a new company run by Gary Vaynerchuk of Wine Library TV.
When they launched I had a ton of great ideas for Cork’d, but I waited so long that I guess I’ll have to get in touch with Gary to share my killer ideas.
The ones I can recall most clearly were that Cork’d should create a sister site called Hungov’r for user submitted videos and hire Sammy Sosa as a celebrity spokesperson.
If drinking wine didn’t give me instant headaches, I could have been a huge asset to that team.
