The Last Time I Purchased Wine Was....

I was tempted to buy my Becklyn allocation yesterday. Just for fun, I decided to check CellarTracker to see when my last wine purchase was. I was surprised by what I saw.

Between my wife retiring and Covid, I was drinking less and buying less. According to CT, I haven’t purchased any wine in 2022 . I was surprised because it’s the first time since I’m using CT (2008), that I had a quarter of the year (a third actually) that I haven’t purchased wine.

My name is Dan Hammer. I may be cured.



Todd, can I get a ruling on this? Does Dan need to turn in his Berserker Card?


Despite his somewhat lamentable taste in wines, he should remain a Berserker. Just start a new category, Berserker lite.

3:30pm yesterday.

Even Cal Ripken Jr. had his streak broken at one point. He remains an Iron Man in my book. I say we remember Dan by his past achievements.

When Russia used to play nice.

You should join the inventory reduction thread. Success stories are few and fair between there.

Only been two weeks but I was excited when my pending in CellarTracker went to zero this morning.

Just now, from the United lounge while waiting for a flight

Sometime in March, probably a Spottswoode purchase. Passed on a Standish offer earlier this week. Waiting for the Andremily email.

Delivery yesterday

. . . 3 minutes ago.

I have not been buying much of anything these last few months. Offers don’t interest me. My cellar as it stands makes me happy.

Then I got an offer that was too good to pass up, the kind that only comes along a few times in your life. But other than things like that, I think I may be very close to done.


I fixed your typo.
