let just say that "theoretically" my state isnt on the list of places that its legal to ship to... anybody know of ways to potentially get around such a problem?

You find someone in a state that can receive it and you send it there. We call it wootlegging

Where are you?

Most of my Rieslings are vineyard specific so I don't do a lot of blending. Probably would if I had other white wines I was making in my cellar, but make pretty much only Riesling for white wines. I suggested maybe making some Gewurztraminer, and my wife, the one that has to sell all this wine, gave me a pretty cold stare. I guess I'll just have to buy my Gewurztraminer from Sattui's Castello di Amorosa for now. I do know of a good Gewurztraminer Vineyard in Mendocino thou, that I used to make an Ice Wine form for Folie a Deux. Maybe they still have some garapes. This is how it all gets started.


you should also try Cathy Corison's 2005 Corison Gewürztraminer Corazón (USA, California, North Coast, Anderson Valley). we tasted this on the rpm tour. it was delightfully aromatic, well-balanced & perfect on a hot summer's day.

Sure, one can purchase Ch. St. Michelle Riesling at Costco for 6 big ones. But where is the money really going? V. Sattui is owned by the Sattui family and they are not part of any huge corporate entity. CSM is owned by US Tobacco. I'd rather give alittle more to the little guy who will really appreciate it rather than the Corporate beast who only care about the bottom right of the spreadsheet.

So I managed to get in on this one even though the ridiculously large button was clicked some 20 minutes after the fact!

Yay! Malcolm gets Riesling!

It was nice, I think it was Mark or Joatmon who mentioned, much to Cathy's surprise, that it smelled like salami. But there were definitely some (nice) deli-like aromatics in it. Good stuff.

Along with the Vin Santo, I also purchased their 1999 Vintage Ruby Port. Also quite good. As was the Madeira. I never got to try the Frangelica, though...

The verb lay means to place or to set down. It always takes a direct object, the thing that is placed or set down.
Examples: Lay the magazine on the table.
I have laid the bike under the tree.
The verb lie means to recline. It does not take a direct object.
Examples: I will lie down around noon.
Let's go lie out on the grass.



On the other hand, it is best to let a sleeping dog lie... Is that not the same format as the previous sentence?

Try putting a zero in front of the tracking number they sent. It looks like they left off the leading 0, when I added the 0 to mine it worked.

Just received my order - which unlike all my other woots was shipped directly from V Sattui via fed ex. Noticed that the labels on the necks of all four bottles are partially ripped down. I'm sure this won't effect taste but is this somehow to indicate that we did not buy at full price ?

I became concerned about my order last week, so I went to check my tracking number and it turns out I don't have one. No email from the woot bot, no tracking number on the order page in my account.

On a whim, I went down to the UPS store where I have my shipments sent and, of course, there it was. Turns out it had arrived 2 weeks earlier. The clerk said it was a good thing I showed up - otherwise they were going to open it up and have a party (obviously he was kidding).

On a serious note, the clerk said he would have called me except the phone number field on the shipping label was blank.

Bad Woot, Bad.

hmmm, same thing with the shipping number. When I added a '0' I found a shipment that attempted delivery in Rexburg ID then apparently returned to the winery. Problem is I'm in Reno NV. Any suggestions?
