Wine v. Beer Videos – James Meléndez / James the Wine Guy

Randomly look for almost any video on beer on YouTube and you will begin to notice immediately is how popular beer videos are–in fact–look at the aggregate of video views and it can be common to see 800,000 or a million hits… then compare with wine videos–2,000 here 50,000 there.

This isn’t a contest but where wine videos will go.  I have 1,154 videos–not because they are easy to do or take no time to complete–on the contrary they take a lot of time to complete.  I do believe that the wine video has not been discovered by the masses at this time.  It is a matter of time.  Someone who produced a 1,000 gave up.  But probably because their counts weren’t high enough.  Wine unlike beer at least in the social media frame is heavily dependent on the written.  I have compared my written to video form and the video form is often outpacing any written piece.

Eventually the wine consuming public wouldn’t look to hope to find content that matches their needs but will expect to see content on every wine they are interested in.

My video on Ruffino Riserva Ducale Chianti Classico Riserva – 2007 – 9.0 – James Meléndez / James the Wine Guy is not my oldest video and yet it is the first to crest the 2,000 video view mark–and that is simply because it is is very widely distributed.

The wine video frontier is still a frontier soon to marry up with a larger audience.  Stay tuned.. there is more to come.

About James Melendez

I love wine and have had the privilege of working in the wine trade as a senior national wine marketing manager for a wine, food and home goods retailer in 30+ US States. I executed into making wine experiential and made 'wines of the world' programme work in a highly regulated framework for a successful business proposition. My "wine" site also incorporates those categories intimately involved with wine such as food, travel and lifestyle. This site incorporates my many dimensions of interest. I love to review and also talk about many aspects of wine. I have been privileged to visit many wine countries and find them enthralling no matter how many times I visit. I love all aspects of wine: viticulture, history, winemaking, brand development, wine regions and many more aspects. This is a living tradition that needs documentation, education, reporting and reviewing. Do I have favourite varieties and styles? I love so many varieties and often it is situational and yet there are time honoured wines that I anticipate and I am passionate about. I like all colours of wine and all styles. I have had a mad passionate affair with sparkling wines and they are always top of mind. Wine nourishes our soul and is the key to connecting with other people at our dinner table.
