Email doesn't say. Last year they charged $150 for the GTS, so probably at least that much this year. They are also offering the NLS which I believe costs less.

Hopefully, they do not throw us any curves.

Tom used three throw curves! Fastballs too. RIP Tom. One of the most dominant pitchers of all time.

Interesting. I signed up a few years ago as well and haven’t gotten a letter. Wonder how deep the wait list is. Congrats on the allocation.

Actually saw him pitch a few times and NEVER throw a curve, just 100 mph fast balls in a day when over 90 mph was super human.

Who's running the project for them now? It's my understanding GTS was VERY involved.

He/they have a winemaker and a vineyard management company. I assume they are still running the show .

Hard to say since I believe the overall production was up a bit, and they are offering 2 wines . I'm guessing 3 and 3 (allocate and wish-list) for each of the 2 wines . That what I got , anyway .

Thanks! kind of funny as I grew up and still I am a hard-core Phillies fan. Watched many of the epic Seaver vs Carlton duels as a kid. Of course we both know who got the better of those

Apparently I signed up a long time ago, even to the point that I had received 2 offers and declined to purchase, resulting in my being taken off the list. Exchanged emails with Karen this week and she is returning me to the list with allocation expected with the release this week. Very excited to try these wines and excellent customer service at Seaver!

Got my 3 GTS as well. I got in pretty early as well and the NLS was already wish listed. Production on that must have been minuscule
