I have no Pedroncelli in the cellar, so am looking forward to seeing how to fit them in.
This will push us over 400 bottles, and now no more room left on the racks!


PedroncelliFamily - On the Zin - On the "mother" Zin vines, what are you seeing as yields given that they are now 100 yrs old? What the percentage of the old vine Zin in the blend ?

Looking forward to tasting the Merlot too! Look rather interesting especially with the terrior. Is the Bench vineyards yours or someone else's?



The yeild on the oldest vines (100 + years) is very low, and hence a small part of the blend. BUT! We've cloned our vines from those originals, and the average age of the vines now are about 35 years. So, old vines on new roots which aren't so new any more! We crop to about 3-4 tons per acre.

Oh great woot admins, please hurry and un-ban my account before this woot is sold out, I promise I'll never complain about missing out on a Barrel of Crops again!

Reviews are just too good to pass up.

The price is great so normally my expectations are not too high figuring I would read mixed reviews. But the reviews posted here made this an easy decision even though my two new 32 bottle coolers are full atm...

Perhaps there's an issue going on with payment? I don't know, but I'd drop service@woot.com a line if you're having purchase issues.

I'm just hanging out, really.

We had our last bottle of Boss Monster (Mother Clone) a few weeks ago. It was definitely better a couple years ago. The 2008 Morris Fay Cab on the other hand just keeps getting better, and we're sitting on about a case of that to see how it evolves.

A big personal thank you to Pedroncelli for this screaming deal, as well as the deals in the past.

Actually I've never gone tasting in Sonoma before; I often go in Southern California (around Santa Maria/Santa Ynez) but every time I've been up north it's been Napa. Any suggestions as to particular wineries would be welcome. I'm partial to big bold reds - cabs and zins and syrahs especially. My fiancee, on the other hand, loves crisp dry whites.

I may also have to stop in at Pedroncelli to preview what I'll be getting in my sampler case!

the forum thread reviews are as glowing as i remember how scott and kent were discussed a couple years back... figured this would give me a good sample of their wine...

now, can we get this dc/va meet together? i have a lot of wine to drink this summer...

Quick! Someone suggest a good 12 bottle wine cellar that is reliable but also inexpensive so that I may purchase this case and have room to keep it!

Exactly. 2nd Prize was one of the best QPR's I've had in a long time. These Pedroncelli people have a touch with the red.

A Pedroncelli quartet was one of my first woots back in 2008. It was one of the reasons I became a fan of this site. Their shipment came right after a sub-par wine, (but that horse has been beaten to death) I was back to being a convert. I have always been pleased. Many of the people I have recommended to purchase wine on woot have enjoyed their Pedroncelli purchases and specifically commented on the wines.

I got married at the Santa Ines mission and had our reception at Lincourt. We usually visit Foley, Starlane, Foxen, Andrew Murray and Brander. Anyway, I am a big fan of bolder wines as well with Zins and Syrahs being my favorite varietal. Where in Sonoma will you be staying? We usually stay around the Healdsburg area b/c of its proximity to Dry Creek Valley and RRV. If you enjoy bold, jammy, new world style Zins then Dry Creek Valley is the place to be. Wilson, Mazzocco, Dutcher Crossing, Preston, and Bella make bold, new world Zins. Crisp saub Blancs (and Chenin Blanc) can be had at Wilson, Dry Creek, Vineyards, and Dutcher as well. Does your fiance enjoy bubblies? PM me and I can give you a few pointers on great delis, lunch places, etc.

I did it. I caved. I'm going to use the wine as incentive - I can't open a bottle of it til I lose 5lbs. We'll see if this plan works...

By all means, stop in there. Also, pay Michel-Schlumberger a visit. South in Sonoma, don't miss Wellington.

Ed how would you compare your 2009 Morris Fay Vineyard Cab in this case deal to your 2008 Three Vineyards Cab ?

I picked up some magnums of your Three Vineyards via woot and finally opened one about a month ago, and found it to be very good, nice spice, earth, dark fruit, everyone loved it that tried it.

One Must-See is V. Sattui in St Helena. I love that winery strip and have been going to VS since my college days (decades ago!) I bought a case of their '79 Amador County Zinfandel, and have been hooked ever since. Came away with a screaming good Syrah on my last visit. They make a sublime Madeira as well. They do not sell in stores, winery or web only. Happy exploring!

I'm thinking 5 for the first and 2 for the rest. Gotta give myself a bit of a boost in the beginning. Besides, I have at least a week or two before it arrives to get started, so maybe I can actually get my rear in gear.

We should totally have a WW dieting support group. Are there any boards for that yet?

Don't even bother with a 12-bottler if you're starting to buy from WW. You'll regret that purchase by the time the next Woot-Off hits!

I bought this 60-bottler last year (as have many other folks on here) and it's awesome. Takes up about as little space as you could to hold that many bottles and it's very sturdy. Pricing is great, too!

Does anyone know where I can get plans to make a simple wine storage rack? Don't need anything fancy, will be out of sight in cool area of my basement. Right now I am just stacking up cases of wine in the cardboard boxes...need something more efficient. I would love to find plans for stackable wine storage racks. Any ideas???

Yup ... I've got one of those and am planning another soon. Easy to mount, sturdy, compact, cheap. I do have some temp control issues, and may have to invest in a good cooler, but for now, this is keeping my stuff still and safe at about 64 F., +/- one degree.
