Re: de Negoce offer

I think most of the existing customer base is getting pretty saturated, especially now that orders are shipping and reality is starting to set in. Cam needs more new buyers at the top of the funnel in order to soak up some of these offers. Unfortunately customer acquisition is pretty expensive... M...

Re: de Negoce offer

It would be funny if Cam was going to the denegociants website and goosing everyone's #'s. LOL

I'm surprised there are still 490 cases left unsold. Might this be the first one that doesn't sell out in 24 hrs??

Re: de Negoce offer

Note: OG 20 label states 14.5% alcohol although Cam said it was 15.9%. Wow, that's a HUGE error in the offer text. Probably a lot of people passed on N.20 because of the ABV.

When I did a taste test on mine, I opened it and poured a half glass, let the bottle sit for an hour open in the wine fridge, re-inserted the cork, let it sit 12 hours (overnight), then Day 2 decanted for 9 hours. Still too young but was clear it is going to be a longer term winner.
