I originally planned on using the opportunity to spread the buying out into some new varietals and new producers that we don't normally drink. But after reviewing the offers, i mostly ended up with a mix of our fav's with only a little bit of new stuff. Lots of Pinot as usual with a little bit of Zin and some italian varietals. Then some interesting Rhone and syrah as the wildcards.

Liquid Farm "1st Course" 6 pack
Castelli 4 pack
Loring Pack 1 & 2
Patty Green case of shorties
Signal ridge 4 pack
DV8 Mixed Rhone 6 reds + whites
Engracia mixed 6
Enkidu Zin + Barbera 4 pack

Unfortunately i had to stop there after hitting my limit. Would have loved to add the Arcadian and Ladd Library deals, the Pinot from Crawford, Iota and Briceland and also a couple packs from Cabot.

Frankly, i was hoping for a little more variety on the offers from Limerick, Fogline and Sojourn.

Three of the four orders I placed are "new" to me:
Virage
Princess and Peasant
West of Temperance

I am curious how the newbies faired on BD.

I think the Sojourn offer has been basically the same each of the last few years - a free bottle with 6, plus 10% off with 12. Both are a nice bonus versus the standard allocation offers.

Certainly a generous offer for fans to stuck up, though they likely do without consideration for this event through various direct sales and futures events.

The vast majority of offers seem to revolve around "discovery" packs as a low cost entry point to sample a winery's wares across the line or a subset of offerings. While its great to be able to stock up cheaply on the old standby's, discovering some fun new wines, be it entirely new producers or just new varietals/vintages from favorite wineries seems to be largely part of the charm of BD.

But i'm glad there's options both ways so everyone gets a chance to find something that satisfies thier interests. I certainly did some "Stocking up" on pinot with Patty Green and Loring and appreciate the opportunity to do so even with a slight twist (half bottles and mystery packs).

I received my first BD shipment today, The Wine Valise. Now I might be motivated to travel somewhere.

Also ordered,
Boheme, Delicta, and iOTA- new to me
Franny Beck- ordered last year, but have not gotten around to trying
Jean Edwards, Ladd, Long Play, Navarro, and Vincent.

I would have included Vidal and Winderlea, but didn't see an offer.

I ordered:

Wilde Farm eight-pack
EMH three-pack
Navarro case
Arcadian four-pack
Random sixer (cab franc)

I thought I would stay on the sidelines this year, but I couldn't help myself with some of the offers being as good as they were.

And the real deal with the Limerick Lane offer is the bump to the top of the allocation list.

I pretty much wanted to buy something from ALL of the offers, but ended up with:
Bougetz Cellars Eminence Cab 6-pack (a real splurge for me, but great deal for very high quality Cab for $39/btl)
Veleta Tempranillo 6-pack, Cab 6-pack (crazy good deal on very good, aged wines)
Ladd Cellars "The Cellar" Pinot 4-pack (new producer for me - Pinots with some age hooked me)

Others on the short list, but ran out of funds:
Cabot, Boheme, Briceland, Longplay, Loring, Arcadian

Drank the first coffee from The Coffee Grounds micro-lot offer. The girlfriend liked it enough that I'm in slightly less trouble for buying 7 cases of wine last Friday.

Over the holidays I had already ordered a stash of Franny Beck, Limerick Lane and PG Berserkers Cuvee all found through WB.

Well, sdfruman bought nearly 7 cases! While John might get the Rookie of the Year award, Sheila STILL holds the crown!

I'm going to make special badges for both of them, and adjust titles accordingly!

Now...if only I could find out which winery sold the most...or perhaps it was Flannery - I see another crown coming!

I somehow missed the Flannery offer. I put it in cart and forgot to click submit. Shame on me.
Overall, got more than I should, and less than I wanted champagne.gif

Very impressive purchases from a bunch of people! I am still in "inventory reduction" mode [rofl.gif] so I didn't go for any wine.

A few other goodies caught my eye!

Serrano ham
Gabriel hand blown glasses
Coffeee
Flannery

But no wine! [wink.gif]
