It’s great news that modern wine guru Gary Vaynerchuk from New Jersey to come down to Australia next April.

This guy has revolutionised online wine retailing from his humble NJ wine shop by connecting with social networks.

All the content and the production have been Gary’s own design over the past five years, the most important being his video Wine Library TV; check it out

Gary spoke late last year at a large media conference in Spain, and is being courted widely to attend wine conferences and express his secrets of success in receiving over 80,000 hits a day on his social networks.

Such as tweeting to @garyvee, which in US terms translates to a lot of wine sales.

His mission in Oz is to address a social media conference ConnectNow which runs for three days at Sydney University from April 7.

As part of the proceedings the Australian wine industry thru Wine Australia is running a competition to win an interview date with Gary Vaynerchuk while he is around.

He will also be adding content to his outgoing video clips in the famous Wine Library TV featuring Australian wine people (rather than just brands) which is the social network thing.
