Re: the perils of sharing allocations

Thoughts and prayers for the Dayton folks this morning.

I would do partial allocation, but if for some reason you don’t want to do that than do local pickup sharing. Worst case scenario sell on winebid to recoup the overpurchase

Re: Is the number of single vineyard Pinot Noirs being produced in Cali out of control?

A few of these numbers are crazy, though! For example, it appears that Williams Selyem release twenty distinct Pinot Noirs in 2017. Twenty! Rivers-Marie has eight. Aubert looks like it's releasing eight Chardonnays. Maritnelli has seven Pinots. Slackers! [cheers.gif] Adam Lee This is awesome haha!!...
