Gary Vaynerchuk sits down with Rob McMillan of Silicon Valley Bank at VinTank
Gary Vaynerchuk has had the chance to interview some seriously interesting wine industry figures. It seems he's spoken with everyone, from renowned writer, Jancis Robinson, to athlete-turned-vintner, Wayne Gretzky. But it was when he sat down with Rob McMillan that he heard the most unique wine industry perspective to date. McMillan started Silicon Valley Bank, the self proclaimed "banker to the wineries on the West Coast". Amid these tough economic times, McMillan provides Gary with an insider's look at what we should expect from California's premium wine market in the not-too-distant future. Is the market as bad as the media makes it out to be? Are these big-name, recognizable brands in serious financial trouble? McMillan breaks down just how drastically this industry has changed over the past decade or so.
