Re: What Bedrock wine are you drinking tonight?

Opened a ‘16 OVZ last night. Wine had made its way all the way up to the top of the cork and the wine was off, for sure. :( Bought one of these from retail yesterday. Good chance it gets opened tonight. Hopefully it isn’t corked. Was $26+ tax. That isn’t too much of a premium for these wines is it?...

Re: 2016 Scarecrow Allocation

I bet it’ll be $1,150 per 3 pack. It went up $60 from 2014 to 2015. Guessing a 6% increase just like the previous year.

Looks like production went from 1,850 cases (2015) to 2,000 cases (2016). Looks like more folks will continue to be added like the previous year.
