Come join us for some virtual camaraderie while we're all locked up in our houses!

Theme is 2000 Bordeaux, if you have it...if not, 'one of your top 5' producers or wines, if you want to be SUPER specific. It's my birthday, so I'm opening up 2000 Leoville Poyferre with my Flannery CA Ribye!


Topic: Berserkers Video Social/Tasting #5

Time: Mar 25, 2020 05:30 PM Pacific Time/ 8:30 PM Eastern Time

Thanks, Frankie - I've got a call with my Father In Law at 5 Pacific as it is his birthday as well, then this, then I'll duck out at 6 ish for family dinner!

Posted an event on our Facebook page if any want to RSVP that way:

We've got 6 going, 13 interested on the Facebook event, so this stands to be the biggest one yet! I MAY have to start working some mute buttons, and get a volunteer to help co-host/moderate with me - any volunteers?

Please pause on sharing your video if you’re going to the restroom (see second vid down):




I think I’ll be able to attend, but none of my 2000 Bdx are ready to open IMO. Mo champagne it will be for me! champagne.gif

I just heard about that on NPR. Classic. I thought they could just see her in the background. I didn't realize she took the laptop in with her!!! [rofl.gif]

That was fun everyone. It was nice meeting new people. I hope to see you guys again soon, and pop some corks in person. We should do this more often. I have a 93 Musar waiting for this Saturday’s Q&A.

Sorry I missed this one. I’d say I had somewhere else to be but we know that’s not true. Was just making dinner and doing family quarantine stuff.

Happy birthday Todd!

When I had to leave to finish my Flannery steaks, we had 18 people on! Jen checked back in quite some time later and she said people were still chatting...90 minutes in!!!

That was hilarious! There's actually a commercial about that - Lincoln, I believe...

No coincidence IMO that the highest attended event was when a certain cheesehead host celebrating his birthday was mostly not there.

J/K Todd! Hope you had a great bday dinner with those Flannerys and the 2000 Leoville Poyferré!

Big thanks to Erin for attending, and providing some nice and insightful background on her and her hubby’s bottlings. Here’s to continued growth and success of your label!

Fun to hear/read on the group chat what everyone was consuming. Looking fwd to the next one.

“Mostly” = was there, then decided his bday dinner with his family was more important than the forum attendees. The nerve of some cheesebillies and their misplaced priorities!!!
