I would be happy to swing by after the Roederer tasting at McArthurs if Berg is there to let the moochers in. I need to check out the 07 cristal. I will bring either all Jura or Jura/Burgs.

Sorry to miss it, people. Next time let me know in advance that you won't be opening up swill and I'll certainly make an appearance.

The only problem is that I am completely out of space in my lockers and there are still a few cases that need to fit somewhere...

Ah, the old "maybe if I never go to Domaine to pick up recent shipments that won't fit in my lockers then the problem will just go away" gambit. I know it well.

Apologize for going off topic slightly - but figured this might be a good place to ask.

Wife works for a mitigation company - deals with water/fire/smoke damage. New client has wine he needs moved/stored. Maybe more.

Already talked to Domaine, and they have a pretty good service available. Don't know if the other dc wine storage place offers similar.

However, if it was just storage and moving the bottles, anyone know of someone in Northern VA we should check out?

Awesome time last night although I'm disappointed that more wine wasn't consumed. Joe, I was expecting you to use a front end loader to bring in those palates of vino for consumption.......I guess there is always Saturday.

If you're not drinking Namibian alfalfa wine, you might as well be drinking Yellowtail out of a solo cup. And domestically, if it ain't Idaho, Udaho.

Noah, if you're looking for a regular alfalfa wine hookup, I got a guy in SW who can take care of you. Better yet, if you have some quality '09 Mongolian Kumis, I'd being willing to trade straight for it straight up. Maybe this is a topic for Commerce Corner?

Unless your family car is a Hummer, I don't see you making it to Domaine on Saturday. But this just bolsters my argument that DC should turn Shaw Middle School into a wine storage facility.
