Wine Berserkers Wine Talk Hall of Fame Thread

#1 Post by Todd F r e n c h » February 9th, 2017, 3:53 pm

Over nearly a decade, these threads below have garnered much attention, tens of thousands of views (each), and provided ridiculously valuable and/or entertaining information for the reader. This is the Hall of Fame for Wine Talk - the very best of the wine-related threads over the past 9 years and counting...

Based on the bump of a recent great thread, I'm starting a Hall of Fame thread, pegged here at the top of Wine Talk. Feel free to submit nominations for the Hall of Fame (wine-related threads only), by replying with the thread URL, and if they make 'the cut' I'll put them here in the OP. Those that won't make it will most likely be those that have too much negativity and attacking, even if the thread has otherwise good value for the reader.

I think Steak Porn is good (although I dislike the title).
The Rudy thread is worthy.
Bob Wood's Wheat Pennies is good.
I like the "What Are You Listening To" and of course, Mama's Pecan Pie.

Some threads, such as Premier Cru, may be worthy but should be treated like Pete Rose and banned from the Hall. In fact, there are numerous threads that, to me, are quintessential berserker threads worthy of the Hall but should be banned because of the ill will that appears to have been created. But such threads do give a great insight into the history of this board.
I would prefer not to list them lest they appear to be effectively giving members a nice paper cut and pouring lemon juice on it. I expect long time members know many of these threads.

Damn what about the Open Letter to the WineBerserker community!!!

http://www.wineberserkers.com/forum/vie ... 881#p66881

I miss Tex, I hope he returns one day... [wow.gif]
I have made the decision that too much of my time and effort is focused on things that I cannot and do not have the ability to change. It is affecting my personal life and well being. I need some time away from both venues for now…as much as that pains me to think about. But, unfortunately the past week has revealed to me just how much I am ingrained in all of this. I wish Wineberserkers continued growth and success as well the renewal of vision for the Squires board.

For value of information provided, it would be tough to top the work Pat Burton did in categorizing the various Piemonte producers. And he continues to make periodic updates, so this is a great resource for anyone who would like to get started with Nebbiolo.

Yes, incredibly valuable, and will make the Hall of Fame, but that means I have to unsticky the Sonoma thread, so do you think it's worth it?

Here is the link to the Barolo thread that Pat Burton started. I believe this is the one that Bob Hughes is referring to. Great thread and a worthy nomination for HOF based on the information that it provides.

Thanks,

Sorry Todd but I can't remember all the specifics. A thread where John (I think) asked if it was okay the amount he was drinking. He kept changing his name, how much and when he drank. Sorry I can't be more specific. Maybe someone else remembers and can help
