Bravo!

Pretty sure I bought from 9 or 10 of these

Hello World (of Wine Berserkers)! As a newcomer to the site (just in time for BD12), let me say that I really appreciate Todd posting this list of 10-Year Berserker Day MVPs. As I’ve now had a week to thoroughly dive into the details of all the Newbie Winemakers/Vendors coming to this year’s show, I realize that I’m now experiencing the effects of Newbie-bias. This is a good reminder that I should spend my remaining waking hours performing due diligence on the nearly 100(?) BD veterans who have supported the WB community throughout the years. As a long-time lurker, I have certainly benefited from (and often been entertained by) your knowledge, opinions, and jibes. Now it’s payback time! I have multiple credit cards (and other payment methods) at the ready. Bring on BD12!!!

Congrats to all of the 10-Year Participants! I have bought wine from 3 of the wineries on that list, and some great olive oil from Nola…I have been very pleased with all of my purchases…and I am sure that there will be more purchases in the next few days!

It’s a privilege and an honor to take part in BD each and every year. As the 2nd winery to ever sign up to WB (Brian Loring beat me by a few hours!!!), it’s been a rollercoaster of fun, informative, aggravating, tear-jerking, and friend-building 12 years and for that I am forever grateful. I continue to be as ‘active’ as I’ve ever been - usually pumping up Santa Barbara County and domestically grown rhone variety producers - but definitely not too busy to stick my neck out on other topics. And it’s always a blast when someone comes up to me at my tasting room or at an event and introduces themselves and mentions that they ‘know’ me from this site - and that the ‘same person’ in person as I am here on the board. There certainly are tons of ‘lurkers’ out there who hopefully will become active members in the coming years as well.

And I do hope the wineries that participate in BD understand that it is not a ‘right’ but a ‘privilege’ and they take the opportunity to immerse themselves and become part of the beauty that is the Wine Berserkers community.

Cheers.

Appreciate all of you guys taking part in this and getting access to some things I wouldn’t otherwise notice!

I’ve bought from 9 on the list, 10 if Chester’s Anvil counts. And JJ buck is auctions only?

JJ Buckley is auctions only, yes, but since most of those cards go for less than their value, it’s like a 10-25% off coupon!

I’ve bought from all of them but JJ Buckley and can recommend them all.

What is Monopole Cru?
