Yes, but which definition would you rather have us use for purchasing purposes?

Two.
Two offers.
Two offers, one week.

Of course to the tune of the successful subway campaign. I apologize in advance if you find yourself muttering some form of this later in the day, its catchy.

Yeah, but what do you expect from a bunch of baseball jocks?

What's that? There are a bunch of baseball fans here? Baseball jocks, even? Really?

Nevermind!

My first thought was the comparison to two girls one cup, not subway

two deals, one week

double the fun, half the time: two deals, one week

the wine lottery: two deals a week, for life

ok back to work

Ohhhhh...Just the mention of two girls one cup should make you eligible for probation. I hope no one makes the mistake of googling that.

Woot has a newsletter that gets sent out on random occasions, and this morning those of us who have subscribed (check Your Account, there should be a checkbox in there to opt-in) received a newsletter spouting about s.w birthday and regular woot's birthday and then there was the killer paragraph about wine.woot going semi-weekly. And it was as if a thousand voices cried out...



That's really odd.....I've subscribed to the Woot newsletter and have received some in the past, but didn't get the one that others have gotten. Is there anyone else that didn't get the recent email?

But it's not really twice the wine... it's twice the offering but it may not be wine all the time.

How about:

"Wine.Woot ... Now emptying your wallet at twice the speed each week"

or

"Wine.Woot ... Now emptying your wallet Two times a week"

or

"Wine.Woot ... It's not just on Mondays anymore"

or my favorite:

"Wine.Woot ... Now two times a week for Double the Pleasure, Double the Fun"

Forgive my ignorance, but why won't this work?
Week 1 - new wine on monday and thursday - 2 wines
Week 2 - new wine on monday and thursday - 2 wines
After two weeks, a fortnight, there have been four wines or wine-related products that have been for sale.

In for 1. So if I'm buying wines way faster than I'm drinking them and even giving them away, what happens when there are twice the offerings? :P

What if only 1 wine in the offer? Or more than 2? Anyway, off to the thread!!

I'm in. Wanted some of that Syrah last week but no Michigan.

I like buying wines that are ready to drink. I've got way too much sitting in my cellar that I don't want to touch for two years...

Ok, I have an actual wine-related question for you. In the description, there isn't much mention of how/how long/in what these wines have been aged. Could you tell us a bit about the wine-making process which has produced these snazzy blends?

Also, I'm curious: why the name "Improv"?

These wines were both made by winemaker Rob Hunter, before Sarah Gott joined us. For Gary's Improv, Rob used a combination of new French and American Oak. I believe the split was 50/50. The wine was aged for 12 months. The Climber Red is aged for 8 months in 25% new and 75% used American Oak. The name Improv comes from the fact that Gary is an improvisational jazz trumpet player. He can actually play two trumpets at one time...it's something to see! The Gary's Improv changes each vintage. In fact our 2005 vintage which we just released is a Zinfandel with a touch of Petite Sirah blended in (3%). The 2006 will be a Syrah. The Gary's Improv is always sourced from select vineyards in the Napa Valley.

You know what would be really cool right now? A Clif bar. Mmmmmm...rich, chocolaty, and full of all the essential minerals you need to wait for your Clif wine to arrive. Mmmmm...that's good.

This attempt at changing the subject brought to you by the fine folks at Clif...mmmmmmm Clif.

Disclaimer: Java is in no way shape or form associated with the fine folks at Clif...mmmmmmmm Clif. He has however been instructed to remain at least 500 feet from the fine folks at Clif. Mmmmmmmm...oh you get the idea.
