Re: 2017 Pegau - Not a TN, a comment about pricing

Check Winesearcher, You can save $0.01 at Winelibrary. This price is not all that special. I guess you didn’t read my third sentence. Now all that said, even if it is $50 all over the country, still seems like (1) a great price and (2) a surprisingly declining price on a stalwart in a solid vintage...

They have a lot of stouts available to go now. I’d recommend trying one before buying, as they are not for everyone. Spend some time outside drinking your draft pours (limit of 2 but you can split up some do the beers available). Lastly, I’d recommend going later in the day if that is possible, espe...

Pretty sure the GUC holder must travel with anyone using a GUC on Delta. So may want to look at another alliance.
Alternatively, on delta you can also use Delta FF miles to upgrade. Typically 65k each way trans Atlantic and need an upgradeable fare class.
