Gary is a 35 year old New York Times and Wall Street Journal best-selling author and radio host who is also a self-trained wine and social media expert.

From a young age, Gary was a businessman. At 8 years old he was operating 7 lemonade stands in his neighborhood and by 10 he had moved onto selling baseball cards at local malls. In high school while working at his family owned liquor store, Gary started reading The Wine Spectator and wine books, and realized collecting wine offered an allure similar to his previous hobby of collecting baseball cards.

With his knowledge and an entrepreneurial spirit, Gary spent every weekend of his college years at his parents’ wine store.

Recognizing the importance of e-commerce in 1997, Gary launched and helped grow his family business significantly from $3 million to $45 million by 2005. Gary is currently hosting his own weekly SIRIUS XM show, Wine & Web with Gary Vaynerchuk, on Thursday evenings.
