Re: SF Bay Area/Peninsula OL - May 13 - Paul Matins

Hmm, sad to see a few cancellations - get well soon!

Since there’s space, I’ll bring a +1 guest.

Re: Wine Insurance: American Collectors

I think USAA also recommends American Collectors. Does anyone else have experience with American Collectors?

Re: Bottle Heft- Do you care?

A consumer opinion here: I appreciate when standard bottles fit into standard wine fridge racking.

Heavyweight bottles are fun in large format though.

As far as theme...

Andy, let's do our '09 Foillard horizontal. You bring 3.14 and I'll bring Cote du Py and Fleurie.
I'm not Andy nor do I have any '09 Foillard, but I can bring '09 Coudert Fleurie Clos de la Roilette so your Foillard Fleurie has some company. Cool?

Re: SF Bay Area/Peninsula OL February 18 - Sole

Summing up - that was the finest OL I can recall. Kudos gents.

My fav was the 1998 Domaine Georges Mugneret-Gibourg Bourgogne, thanks for bringing.

PS: Thanks Dan for bringing the strainer too!

Re: Official Costco Thread

Here's a good Costco story/win for ya. I made my weekly visit (I have 2 young kids) to my favorite location here in Phx and, per usual, did a b-line to the wine section. Nothing really new or exciting, but I did see that they just got in multiple pallets of Dom Perignon in single-case boxes. Took a...

Re: Anyone using Weinboxes?

Price seems to have gone up recently, FYI.

Currently $159 + $26 shipping for 9 via Amazon.

Two weeks ago it was $135 + $26 shipping.

Well-built product, seems robust - so far so good!

Re: Drink that shitty wine night for Laura's House/Falltacular 1/11/19-1/13/19

Great idea! I’m in. I will be regretfully drinking “Fonda Real” “White wine” - product of Spain, no vintage given.

It was part of a biz gift basket received for Christmas 2017, so I’ve been stalling for over a year trying to figure out what to do with it.
