WineFest V--Cellar Depressurization--July 18, 2020 in Toronto

#1 Post by Mike Grammer » July 4th, 2019, 9:38 am

This is your year-plus warning. My 5th of these quadrennial events where I open about 80-100 bottles from my cellar in a day. Many non-Berserkers attend as well. As a result, I probably can only provide space here for 15 or so people at most.

An exclusion for that---if I have your email (i.e. have met you a couple times and coordinated or been to offlines, etc.), you don't have to put yourself on this list. You are/will be invited --- though an email/pm to me would still help my planning.

If you'd like to come, I *will* need a PM with your email, as there are materials to send you beforehand (rules sheet, etc.).

You are NOT allowed to bring ANY wine to the event. That said, last time we had a lot of fun with holding a brunch on the Sunday. I brought some of the leftovers to that and did allow people to bring their own wines to that event. I need to make some arrangements but I do plan to have that happen again in 2020.
