Krugsters wrote:Hello everyone,

I mentioned an idea I had at the last NYC tasting about the possibility of having combined tasting with all the eastern woot groups invited (or anyone else from the west coast who'd like to fly in and join us!)

Everyone at the tasting was really enthused by this idea especially with the idea of it being held on a beautiful, 82 foot, 1920's yacht that would sail around Manhattan for 2 hours.

I was thinking sometime in July and if we can confirm 40 participants it would be $50 per person. (The boat can accommodate 48 but it would be more comfortable with 40).

I got the company to waive the per bottle corkage fee and the above price includes the rental cost of the yacht along with all gratuities & taxes.
We would allowed to bring light snacks/picnic foods aboard.

We could limit the tasting to 10 wines with multiple bottles of the same wines.

Here's the info for the yacht:
http://www.shearwatersailing.com/about-the-shearwater.cfm

So...whadda think?



This sounds awesome! It depends on the date, as July can get hectic, but I would love to join in, as would my husband.

Ran out of room for the wines, and can't think of a good quote for now

How about Saturday, July 25th?

Sounds like a great idea. I hope I can convince my wife to give it a shot. Long way to return, so would likely have to find a hotel.

And to celebrate Krugsters' birthday at the same time. (priceless)

Yup, I agree (well maybe with the exception of Red Skelton). But I did say lots, not all...
I thought Audrey Landers had a twin sister?

Anyway...I have updated the first post. Please speak up if you want to be moved to the confirmed list.

We need to hash out wines.

Also, I might need help coordinating this since I'll have my hands full in about a month or so.
Any volunteers?

For a theme, since we're blending the various east coast w.w groups, how about setting the tasting around blends?

Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Coro Mendocino, Conundrum, TyTanium, Titus Lot 1, Chocolate Block, etc.

Nothing labelled or traditionally a single varietal wine.

Could be fun. Blends can be the winemaker's top expression. I'd pop a Monte Vide Eu or two if we go with it.

We should also be able to find a way to get some wines that would be considered exceptional that would normally be out of the price range of affordability for most of us if bought alone. Basically by combining funds and all that. After all, if we're going to have like 40 people and 10-15 wines, there will be plenty of room for the pooling of funds for some great bottles (even if we aim for 2 bottles of each wine).

25 bottles enough? Those who don't bring wine should bring food.



rpm +1 a maybe -- depends whether we're in California getting the daughter settled or home.

Just returned from 10 days in San Francisco and Napa with my daughter (#2 - Linnea) who is moving to SF this Summer with an actual job. Spent the obligatory time apartment hunting with her and showing her the ropes of SF with old friends and my older daughter's friends, and had some wonderful days in Sonoma and Napa, which may be the subject of further posting and perhaps even future woot loot.

Tourists will note that we actually managed to get Linnea and WineDavid into the closed off old cellars at Buena Vista.

Not sure where you would plan to fly into (as Southwest doesn't fly into either LGA or JFK) but if it's ISP (Islip MacArthur) that you would fly into, I might be able to meet up with you as it's only 30 minutes from me. It's the airport I use most of the time.
