Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

They should have had a Wine.Woot Icon option (Scott Harvey, Peter Wellington, Ty Caton, Stillman Brown).

You have my name up there on that list, but I'd rather hang out with somebody else because I'm not a loser and like to drink WITH others and not alone.

Maynard James Keenan. Frontman of Tool, APC and Puscifer, and also a winemaker. I don't like wine, but I'd try his.

He doesn't make the wine. He owns the winery and employs a winemaker. He does collaborate though.

I gotta' go with Wilfred Wong. Taste's over 8,000 wines per year so he knows better than anyone.

Actually, Darth Vader has spent the last decade learning quite a lot about different wines and vintages. I'm sure he also has a few good stories.

I've had the pleasure of hanging out with Scott and Jana Harvey (multiple times) and Clark Smith. I'll wish for more opportunities to do the same but the wine celeb I'd love to meet is Ivanka Trump. Although she really has nothing to do with Trump Winery, her father owns it and she works for him, so....

I read the poll wrong, I stopped reading after: "Which wine celeb would you most like to hang". I answered Robert Parker....
