#1 Post by brigcampbell »

A Wineberserker Public Service Announcement
The 7th annual Virtual Tasting Series (VTS) is ready to go. The first week for 2019 kicks off the week before Thanksgiving and runs through December 1st giving those time to post a tasting note into the thread. Each week is hosted by a fellow Wineberserker who decides the theme, format, and the charity they'd like to support.

Matching Donations: if you'd like to co-host the current week by matching the donations then just post into that week's thread "I'm matching" and any terms and conditions you'd like to add. A number of people have requested this and it's a great idea so have look below and pick a week you'd be interested in matching.

Week__Date_____Theme / Host - Charity
  1. NOV22 - DEC1 - Anything Pinot Noir - Frank Murray - Laura's House
  2. DEC4 - DEC11 - D@vid Bu3ker / Dakin Humane Society - All About Oregon Wine
  3. DEC11 - DEC18 - Jim Stewart / Wines of the Loire" - Semper Fi
  4. DEC18 - DEC25 - Outside Your Comfort Zone / Joe Duncan - Malaria Foundation
  5. DEC25 - JAN3 Hipster Wines / Brian Tuite - Mechanics GoFundMe
  6. JAN3 - JAN10 - BRW (Big Red Wines) / Jay Hack - Kids' Kloset program of (914) Cares
Here's the Compendium for the previous years.

Who's in for a host week for a good cause? Looking for hosts interested in supporting their favorite charities.

How do you do it?

Post the week you want right into this thread, just like David did down below.

Pick a charity, theme, and format. Post it right here.

I do all the work for you starting the thread, etc. You just sit back and relax.

It's that easy. First come first serve while weeks are open

Brig, I'll step up and take the Dec 11-18 week. The charity will be Semper Fi. For a theme I'm thinking "Wines of the Loire". Let me know what else you need from me to get it going. Thanks, -Jim

Good for you and good for us!

OK berserkers, you have a reason to visit the local wine shop. Tell the significant other it's for "charity" and you want to do your part.

Also, lots of things coming from Oregon other than pinot these days... Beer count? [berserker.gif]

Only two weeks left open for adoption. Anyone interested in doing the Beer Intermezzo the week before Christmas?

PSA Sunday is the last day for FMIII Pinot thread.

Starting Wednesday it'll be David and all about Oregon. Gives you a reason to go shopping if you're light in the cellar.

How long are we going to last this year? If there's another week, I'll take it. I have to think of a theme and a charity.

I normally wouldn't post here on an unrelated thread, but I have sent you two messages about the offline tonight at Wu's Wonton King. You are on the waitlist there is a spot and you had even discussed a potential pick. I have received no response and assume you can't make it. Is there any reason you have been on the boards read my messages posted here but not given me the courtesy of a response ? PLEASE RSVP !

If I can have January 4-10, I will have the theme BFRW. That's Big Red Wines. I will define that to mean wines that Alfert and Brad Kane would prefer not to have to drink. To be more specific, I will say wines made by Thomas Rivers Brown, Mike Smith, Manfred Kranel, Justin Strider Smith or Phillip Cambie (hey, I have to give the Francophiles a chance). I will consider other winemakers proffered in advance. I haven't figured out a charity yet, but my office just adopted, as Santa's Helpers, a classroom of third graders from a school in Brooklyn that is in the lowest economic district in NYC. Each kid wrote a letter asking for one thing that they need and one thing that they want. Half of the "needs" were winter coats and the rest were similar. The "wants" were all modest, things like Beybladesd and Barbie dolls. If I can find a charity that does similar work (I'm looking into it) that's who I will choose.

Ok, after not a lot of searching needed (unfortunately) my charity will be the Kids' Kloset program of (914) Cares, which is a program to provide clothes to kids in need in Westchester County, NY. Although we have plenty of wealthy communities (Scarsdale, etc.) we also have Mt. Vernon and Yonkers, so there is plenty of need.

Hi Brian, wanted to confirm that you are going with "hipster" wines and not the cab/ cab blends that I saw mentioned elsewhere on this thread. If so, I have no idea what hipster is, am very sure I do not have any on hand, but I googled and came across something called "pet nat" as an example. Would that get me into the hipster ballpark?

Jim,

I moved from Cab when I saw Jay Hack go with Big Reds. By Hipster wines I’m referring to tings like low alc, high acid, carbonic, off the beaten path varieties, drink me now sparklers, new generation young winemaker choices.
Examples: Dirty & Rowdy, Jolie-Laide, RYME, Cruse etc
Vermentino, Mourvèdre, Melon, Trousseau, Pinot Gris, Trousseau Gris, Valdiguie, Tempranillo

Not your Cab, Pinot, Zin, Syrah, Chard, Sauv Blanc regulars.

Hope this helps.

Cheers

Thank you Brig for helping to pull all the loose ends together this year once again, as well as the other folks who helped, whether as donors or week organizers to raise money. This is the side of Wine Berserkers that I appreciate and enjoy.
My best wines for 2020:
2014 Marie Courtin Champagne Efflorescence Extra Brut
2012 Minière F & R Champagne Influence Brut
2008 Rhys Skyline PN SCM
2015 Ulysse Collin Champagne Les Pierrières
2014 Laherte Frères Champagne BdB EB Les Grands Crayeres

Kindness matters. Dignity matters. Accountability matters. Respect matters. LEADERSHIP MATTERS!

Thank you, Brig. I,too, appreciated the opportunity to learn about the organizations, to participate, and to read the TNs.

Well done and Cheers!
