Love the winery (great place for a picnic)... but never tried any of their wines (we always take our own bottle in our picnic basket). I may have to pass this week with all of the indulgence last week. I'll wait to see what the 2nd half of the week brings.

I wish wine.woot would make items that didn't cost $60.

How about selling ONE bottle of wine at a time, guys?



Just wanted to reply to say that it would not make economic sense at $5 or $7 shipping to buy only one bottle. At that shipping price, the bottle then becomes about as expensive as the one in your local shop, if not more. To really maximize the price advantage, you need to get multiples.

I did visit there in Jan, and the store and fake cellar is quite the tourist trap. But a little ways behind it is an actual winery.

not a riesling fan unless indian food is involved, but my love for this winery runs deep. In for one out of loyalty, and hoping for some of their awesome reds come Thursday.

hey, not in for the labrattery this week. In Lodi, then running 220 miles as part of a relay. Won't be abode-side until next week.

ah, beg to differ. They have some lovely wines. That they have capitalized on the tourist trade does not negate that.

this was actually replying to the "tourist trap" original post.

Not to mention that as with regular woot, the $5/$7 shipping doesn't cover the actual cost of shipping, some of it is baked into the price. And shipping one bottle is almost as expensive as shipping two. One-bottle offerings wouldn't have the same level of discount.

Very true. Another reason to like them is they bottle some hard to find varietals and they make a full range of wines, from white to rose to red to dessert to port. Love their Gamay Rouge and Muscat.

Front page has the "Off Dry" listed as 13.2 %v/v, doesn't say anything about the "Dry"


They don't say what the RS is on the "Dry" one, I wonder if it's completely dry, or champagne "dry".

EDIT: Web site says 0.8% RS for the Dry (2.0% for the Off Dry)
EDIT2: Dammit, that's for the '06...

Ovaltina, my goat! V Sattui on Woot! I love this place. I was up in Napa Saturday and we so wanted to stop here to re-stock on the Riesling but didn't make it. I"m so excited to see it here. In for one and I hope my request to be a labrat is still in effect!!!

I am thinking with them being dry that they aren't going to taste a lot like C St. Michelle right? I notice it says peach and tangerine rather than apple/pear.

So can a wine be dry and still have that soft sweetness? (total noob question, I apologize for that)

Don't be sexist. Broads hate that.

I'm not inclined to jump on this. The twice weekly $60+ price points (including shipping) are putting me in the poor-house. Albeit a pleasant journey.

Oh, winemaker!

My understanding is that Riesling and Johannisberg Riesling are the same grape. Why do some winemakers choose to call it the former and others the latter? Tradition? Marketing? Using up old labels?

Thanks!

Tradition. Johannisberg Riesling is what Riesling was called in the US originally.

The off-dry is excellent & it's one of my favorites, so I might be in for 1. It goes for $18.75 a bottle on V. Sattui's website.....

Gamay Rouge? The bottle you sent us was actually "Napa Gamay" (aka Valdigue)

I sold textiles for many years. I once told my employer, whom I assisted with purchasing, "A yard of fabric is a yard of fabric. Wouldn't you rather sell 1 yard at $10-$20 as opposed to 1 yard at $2?" The labor and many (not all) of the associated costs are the same. go woot! I really respect their business model.

I see woot finally convinced Daryl to let them woot his vino. Maybe next he'll let them at the Castello di Amorosa. Anyone not familiar with Sattui needs to try this, you will not be disappointed, this is the first time any Sattui wine has been available outside their own store.

I'd be all over this if all 4 were dry. "Off Dry" is a slippery slope to Blue Nun and other grocery store carp. Might have been enticed if this was May and we had a whole summer where an off dry would be ideal for a concert in the park or sitting on the deck after a long day of work, enjoying the summer evening. But alas, you can already smell autumn in the air in Chicago, and by the time this gets here, I will have zero use for it.

So, How good is this deal?

wine.woot sure seems to think it is a good one, based on the write-up this week. But does wine.woot know that Sattui is running some specials on their website right now? Including extra discounts for white wines plus discounts for ordering a case (though you'd have to order at least as many bottles as 3 orders from woot for either of these to kick in)?

Well, if you think that matters, you'd be wrong -- even when shipped to CA and with all of the discounts wine.woot comes in with a lower price (and that's without including tax, which Sattui seems to be calculating even for stats other than CA). And before you talk about driving straight to the winery, Clayfu, it is still cheaper even without winery shipping costs.
