If you take a refund, they said they will honor pre-order pricing at a future date. Similarly, if you wait, they will offer a discount on the Bluetooth so you can have something sooner.

Bastianich rose, if you can find it locally, should be a good fit for the price.

There are also a few California producers you could probably buy in quantity from directly for your price point, I would think.
