BerserkerDay...THIS is why I do it

Warm up your credit cards and come on in, as here is where you will find all the BerserkerDay offers - open to EVERYONE who loves wine. Apologize to your spouse or significant other ahead of time. #BD12
Forum rules
Forum rules
Not 'Rules', necessarily, but here's how BerserkerDay goes:

I'll be launching offers in groups of 8-10, in increments of 30 minutes. Sponsors will stay pegged at the top of the forum all day, each new group of offers will come in at the top with them for their launch grouping, cycling into the 'normal' thread after their launch time has passed, with a new launch group posted atop the thread thereafter. Discussion is encouraged, as posting replies moves the thread up to the top of the grouping, whether that is during launch time group or the 'regular' forum.

Keep checking in every 30 minutes for new offers being posted, and keep scrolling down to see everything that has been launched throughout the timeframe in which you've been on the forum, which hopefully is ALL DAY

BerserkerDay...THIS is why I do it

#1 Post by Todd F r e n c h »

This just came in from one of the participants of BerserkerDay 12 (and other BerserkerDays...)
We are so appreciative of you and Berserker Day and very excited for this year!

Thanks Todd for honestly being a big reason we survived 2020!
Absolutely filled my heart with joy

Plus 1.

The timing of the first quarantine was right at bottling, and a very rough time for us for cash flow. The quarantine thread, and other Berserker support, made a huge difference for us in staying viable.

Also-over the years it’s become apparent to me, that the desire for the members of Wine Berserkers to try the single vineyard, block bottlings, and especially the Heritage wines has really been a huge factor supporting my focus on the individual nature of the vineyards we work with.

In short, I have a lot of gratitude to this board for helping me to give absolute focus on the wines I want to make and be successful with those wines.

Just wait. Marcus and his merry gang have been busy recruiting OTHER small wineries for BerserkerDay! It's like a group hug coming up this year!

It certainly has been a true honor taking part in this event each year. It's the least I can do - offer special deals to those who I interact with on a regular basis by being here on the Board and actively taking part in conversations near and far. Looking forward to another successful event for all producers taking part!

Love this.

Todd - We need to get a good wine fridge or storage deal on Berserker Day this year. Some of us are out of storage space and need a place to put BD purchases!!!

Oh man...good idea! Obviously late now, but something to think of for next year. I'll put it on my list

Thanks for all the effort Todd!! Wine fridge isn't going to help... may push me over the edge to offsite. Discovering smaller vineyards and wineries is a big part of the fun for me. Thank you all for participating!!
