Berserkerday remains a very important day to me and tercero both personally and professionally.
On a professional note, I continue to be a passionate and active supporter of wineberserkers, the wineberserker community, and the ‘ethos’ of this community as well. I’ve been here from the start – both as a contributing member of the community and someone who hopefully helps add something to many of the discussions on this board. I love the sense of community here – and hope that the feeling is mutual for at least some of you. I always enjoy the interaction on the board - and even more so when I see folks in person, at me tasting room or at Falltacular or at offlines. I’m bummed more winemakers don’t take part here - but to me, it’s their loss and my gain
On a personal level, Berserkerday falls on the birthday of my oldest child, Davis, who will turn 19 this year. They (Davis is gender fluid) now resides up in Portland and is a ‘living ad’ for ‘Portlandia’ – she is a vegan, roller-derby, gender-fluid individual loving the ‘openness’ of the Portland community – and I could not be more proud of humbled about the true individual they have become.
Okay – enough of this other stuff – now on to the offers! Based on last year, I’ve decided to offer a couple of different packages, so hopefully there’s something for everyone:
2017 Mourvedre Rose Futures – 6 Pack
This was by far my most popular package last year, and I truly and honestly hope everyone who purchased it enjoyed the wines. I am very proud of this wine, and I can tell you that the 2017 is already showing the explosive aromatics of the 2016, the same salmon color, and a touch more acidity. (And in case you are interested, here is what William Kelley, previously of Decanter and now at WA and an active member of this forum, had to say about my 2016 (tied for highest rated CA Rose alongside Jamie Kutch): http://www.decanter.com/wine-reviews/usa/california/tercero-santa-barbara-county-mourvedre-rose-2016-12910
This is a wine that you’ll want to have at least 6 bottles of – you’ll want to open a bottle a month for 6 months – and then realize you need more In all honesty, the best bottle of my 2016 that I’ve had was opened yesterday – seriously! You’ll receive 6 bottles of my 2017 Mourvedre Rose – scheduled to bottle in mid-March – and I’ll ship them to you, weather-permitting, sometime in the last two weeks of March. You’ll receive a 33% discount and discounted shipping, and your total cost is $150 all in.
2016/7 Mourvedre Rose Pack (only 20 packs available) ONLY 3 LEFT
For those of you who tried my 2016 and want more, and for those who did not and want to compare/contrast with the new release, here’s your opportunity!

2016 Mourvedre Rose Magnum 2 Pack (only 10 packs available) ONLY 1 LEFT! SOLD OUT
I made a limited number of hand-bottled, screw cap magnums of my 2016 Mourvedre Rose that I still have available.

For this sampler, you’ll receive a single bottle each of 6 different wines from the 2011 vintage, one of my favorites to date for rhone variety wines in my area. You’ll get a bottle each of 2 different single vineyard syrahs – Larner Vineyard and White Hawk Vineyard – a bottle of my very limited 2011 Petite Sirah (only 25 cases produced), and then a bottle each of 3 blends – 2011 Verbiage Rouge (Grenache-based blend), 2011 The Climb (syrah/PS blend) and 2011 Cuvee Loco (Grenache/Mourvedre/Syrah from the Larner Vineyard).
