BerserkerDay IX Master Thread/FAQ - Records set!!! Over $500,000 in wine/wine related goods sold!

#1 Post by Todd F r e n c h » January 3rd, 2018, 11:15 am

This will be the principal thread for all discussions related to the 8th BerserkerDay - a buying extravaganza unrivaled in any other wine community, anywhere. One day (two, if including the Subscribers Advance Purchase Day) where over $250,000 in wine and wine-related goods are sold to eager wine lovers throughout this community.

First of all, BerserkerDay (full history posted below) is a celebration of the founding of this amazing and vibrant community of wine lovers around the world, and it started on the first anniversary of our founding, some 8 years ago. The idea is to have a day-long celebration by introducing wine and wine-related products to the community at large, at deals that you CANNOT find elsewhere, primarily because those making the offer are so small that they don't have 'sales'. It's a fantastic way to introduce yourself to some new small wineries, in particular, and I can attest - as can thousands of others who have bought on BerserkerDay - that I've found some of my favorite producers this way.

How does BerserkerDay work?

Anybody - registered member or not - can view the BerserkerDay subforum (where you are now) and the offers that wineries, retailers, and other wine-related product sellers will have posted. It starts approximately 7:30 am PST on January 27th, and each offer will have its own thread. I will be posting them in chunks of approximately 10, in intervals of approximately 30 minutes. Threads will NOT bump to the top of the list when replies are made this year, but discussion - as always - is HIGHLY encouraged. That's part of the fun! Share this event with your friends, on your social media accounts! Our Twitter handle is @WineBerserkers for those that tweet, and the more you share, the more fun we ALL have here!! I want to see some tagging on Facebook and Twitter, folks!
(Offers are made by the wineries, businesses, retailers, etc, and each offer has its own specific order parameters, which will be outlined in the offer itself. Wine Berserkers does not take any orders, has no e-commerce capabilities, nor licenses to sell wine, so each offer posted will have the directions on how to order)

Specific to BerserkerDay IX: We have some special tags for threads this year, to help you recognize and differentiate easily. Newbies (as with last year) will have a NEW topic icon on their threads, and participants who have been in BerserkerDay for 5 years or more will have a 5 topic icon. The rest should have BD topic icons. This way, any new threads that pop up in the BerserkerDay forum (which is encouraged, and always happens, like 'what are you buying on BerserkerDay?') won't confuse those looking for the offers, as the offers will have one of the three topic icons below:

Preview Day/Early Purchase Offers

On January 26th, Friday, Subscribers will have access to the Pre-Launch forum to see ALL the offers, and plan their buying strategies. NO PURCHASES CAN BE MADE FROM THAT FORUM, and violators stand to lose the ability to participate in future BerserkerDays. There are, however, 'Early Purchase Offers', wherein BerserkerBusiness members, in a separate forum, can sell their offer on the same day as Preview Day, Jan 26th. Only Subscribers will have access to Preview Day and Early Purchase Offers, everybody else (guests and registered members) will be eligible on Jan 27th. Both will be open around the same time

Auctions

Auctions will commence toward the afternoon, finishing in the evening. Save some money for auctions, as many of our participating wineries and businesses offer auction items to the community, as thanks for the benefits they get during BerserkerDay, since there is no cost to participate (there is no cost to participate because this maximizes the discounts offered to the community! Rather than take a percentage of sales, the auctions are the way to financially support the community, throughout the year, and are a lot more fun than taking a slice from the deals being offered!)

HISTORY OF BERSERKERDAY:

WHAT IS BERSERKERDAY??

For those who do not know, BerserkerDay was named for the day it was founded at its current location on the web - January 27 - with the URL wineberserkers.com. Each year, on the 27th, I invite wineries, retailers, and other peddlers of the wine industry to offer berserk deals on their wares. Each is posted throughout the day, in groups of about 10, in roughly 30-minute increments, spreading out the fun throughout the day, ending with an auction of even more fantastic items. This day of deals is a fantastic way for those ITB to give back to consumers, and also the reverse, as many, many new and exciting wineries/producers/wines are discovered by Berserkers on BerserkerDay, with purchases made, and discussions from those who might have experience with them. There is NO revenue sharing or cost to any participating winery or retailer, as to do that would raise the prices in the offers - this way, the maximum discount is given to all those who show up on this magical day. It's also a way for me to give back to what makes Wine Berserkers what it is - the community! All the fantastic content on WB is from you, and here's a way for me to setup a virtual party for everyone - current and future community members.

History of Wine Berserkers: The name 'Berserkers' actually comes from Mark Squires (the image below shows when/how the original group of 15 or so was named by him), before the word that bore our community became a banned word on that website and forum. Our growth has never stopped over the past 8 years (there was half a year on another domain name as well) and we're currently over 22,000 registered members strong.

This year, be sure to tell your friends, as I'm opening the BerserkerDay IX forum up to anyone who wants to see it - you don't HAVE to be registered (unless you have an order that requires you to PM the winery, in that case, you better register!) to see the deals. We'll have a Twitter hashtag of #berserkerday and hope that you can post your favorite threads on Facebook as well on the 27th. PLEASE help point it out to me, so I can see when folks are sharing. My Twitter handle is @toddfrench, so please tag me, and on Facebook, I'm easy to find.

Damn it, I'll be at DisneyWorld with my daughter and her friend. Looks like my mobile will be getting a workout. (The next day, I'm going to Burns Steakhouse with MS Will Costello and some of his friends - going to blow a crapton of money on old burgs and barolos!)

Veteran hint - become a Subscriber, so you can preview all lots and buy the BerserkerBusiness lots a day early! Then you can enjoy DisneyWorld, as you should.

We'll have to crown a new BerserkerDay Champ (last year, Mike Evans) and BD Rookie of the Year (last year, John Simpson). Will be tough to outspend Mike Evans, but in most prior years (before it was an official Rank) I'd say Sheila Fruman probably was the winner. I think she was working on and off this past BerserkerDay but hopefully she's back and ready to show us how it's done.

I'd better not be a contender for the title this year, as my BD budget has been re-routed into maintenance on an older German car, sewer line repairs, a new furnace, and a new roof, gutters, and siding all within the last three months.

I'm also well stocked from past BD purchases (I really need to increase my consumption rate):

BD V - 32 bottles purchased/26 remaining
BD VI - 88 bottles purchased/67 remaining
BD VII - 119 bottles purchased/111 remaining
BD VIII - 101 bottles purchased/100 remaining

I've been happy with pretty much everything I've had from BD, and encourage people to give something new a try this year. Some of my BD discoveries are now among my favorite producers, and you can't beat the quality of wine available for the prices offered.

A GREAT suggestion Merrill Lindquist made is to highlight not only the Newbies (which is something that we'll keep doing, as it's a great way to meet new small wineries) but the veterans! Many participating wineries have been BerserkerDay participants for many years, and while next year is our 10th (WOW!), this year we can recognize all those who have participated in BerserkerDay for 5 years or more, with a special Topic Icon that will go on their listing. Here's a preview of what it will look like:

So we'll have BD icons, 'NEWBIE' icons, AND now 5-year Icons!

And a new 10-year icon next year for the VERY few!!!

Here's a fun blast from the past, highlighting the very first BerserkerDay offers (in 2010, BerserkerDay I):

viewtopic.php?p=206944#p206944

We've grown quite a bit since then! (from roughly a dozen offers to over 100 in prior years (though I'm reducing it slightly this year, maybe...but probably not. Next year, for the 10th, it's gonna be a monster...)

Like Mike, I have way too much wine currently. I did bring an assortment of wines from prior BDs to my NC tasting group last month for research. Adam Kuehn (Phredd on CT) did some tasting notes that he will hopefully share here. Funny that you decided to do an official BD Champ after I had held the unofficial title for a few years. However, I plan to do as much as I can to enable others, especially to try new producers! I'm just a poor retired Fed now. I think I'm sitting with over 2K in inventory, but I desperately need to update CT. I'm willing to supply wine if anyone wants to come to Manassas to help with my inventory. ;)

I'm starting to see the offers/placeholders roll in on the Pre-Launch forum, and it's fantastic to see how many have been BerserkerDay participants for 5 years or more! Already over a dozen with the 5-year tag, and we're only about half-way through the pre-launch threads (many haven't posted their offer or a placeholder yet)

I guess that means they've figured out that it's of great value to participate in BerserkerDay :)

BerserkerDay IX Master Thread/FAQ (Please Read)

#33 Post by Lonnie F. » January 13th, 2018, 5:45 pm

Todd,

Is there a document containing all of last year's offers? I'm trying to do some research without opening each individual offer in last years section.

Thanks
Lonnie Fuller

Will Mark Squires drop by to say 'Hi' and possibly offer up a deal?

Post #1 has info on how Subscribers will be able to see all the offers on Preview Day, and buy from BerserkerBusinesses as Early Purchase Offers (one or two last year sold out on Early Purchase/Preview Day)

As for last year's offers - and all BerserkerDays past where we had a dedicated forum, there's a 'BerserkerDay Archive' in the forum list, at the bottom (also linked in the words BerserkerDay Archive' in this post) where you can see everything from last year, and all prior. Unfortunately we don't have a document listing them, as each winery/retailer makes their own post/offer, so they aren't collected in one master document

4 at present, could be more coming as some do try to jump in last minute. Last year our 'newbies' were 1 or 2 years 'new', so we had much more

Will there be a comprehensive list somewhere of all participating wineries? (If they’ve confirmed)

We're only a week away, folks!!!

6 Days until 'Preview/Early Purchase Day', where Subscribers get to preview ALL the offers, and purchase from the BerserkerBusiness participants (each will have a separate forum, to keep the confusion level down)

ONE WEEK until the big day, and this year, save some money for auctions, as this is - by far - the best year for BerserkerDay Auctions EVER.

I posted this on Instagram. I used several #hashtags, including wine, cellartracker, Oregon, California, and of course Wineberserkers.

Is there any way I could find out if Navarro is in this year? I want to weigh all of my options this year but it would really help to know this one specifically.

Todd,
On Preview Day when should we expect to see the list go live, and be closed.
Last year I was working late and missed nearly all of it as it closed only shortly after I got off work.

tnx
~Ron Q~
