I can't imagine a decrease in my book inventory! SWMBO here is happy maintaining the current level of wine (which is sadly not an astounding amount, given limitations on storage space), but we both find it hard to part with books, though at this point we essentially have a negative amount of shelf-space available to hold any new books.

On your Web site you can ship to Virginia but this woot fall case does not allow shipping VA



Sometimes details get crossed between the winery, winedavid and the code monkeys. I'll talk to winedavid and see if we can do something. If not, send me a PM and we'll see if we can work out something.

Anyone know the drinking window? As in how long can I forget I have them before I need to drink them?

Agreed, but in Wellington's case...Using a Wootlegger is totally justified. Getting two cases. Thank you Peter!

In for 1! Been contemplating it all morning and decided I couldn't pass it up at this price. Thank you everyone for your comments and feedback - I love this place.

Now if I can only find room...hopefully I have some by the time it arrives, but not likely - more like even less room, lol. My wife has many of the same rules as the others at w.w when it comes to purchases and storage. Only tend to get an earful when she is NOT drinking it though, which isn't too often!

Simple solution. Make space for the new case. ;). You'll have space and she can't complain

Damn you woot! I have NEVER had the Wellingtons and they always come up at a bad time. Last contracted job ended. Signing a new lease tonight and losing mad cash too... I should be saving but everyone raves about these wines!!!

*sigh*

Anyone want to consider splitting a case in the New York City area? lol

So, lots of talk about cutting back on oders and VA shipping, but how are these wines? Awesome, ok, meh? I want to pull the triger based on some of the feedback, but I need a little more info.

TIA

If you like wines with no residual sugar, but enough fruit to keep the wine from turning your face inside out, you're good. They're big, but not too big, and very, very food friendly, but not such that you have to eat with them or they're gross.

I'm working from home today in the basement and am literally staring at boxes and boxes of wine, most of it from Wine.Woot! But how can I resist a case of Wellington from the 2007 vintage for less than $13/btl delivered? Answer: I can't.

Curious as to what Woot's imputed shipping cost is on this deal to arrive at retail.

Retail on just the bottles is $239.90. So the other $22.50 is shipping and taxes.

This place has turned me into a real sicko. I currently have a (6) of the Diablita Red Blend in route, (3) Ardente '97 cabs on order, (3) Ardente Library cabs on order, and I just pushed the big yellow button for this. I'm gonna need to slooooow doooown.

The Cab and Syrah can last five years, the others not so long. The Merlot is wonderful right now and may hold for several years, but I wouldn't wait too long. I would say both Zins are about as good as they're going to get and should be consumed within the next year or two. The Duke isn't intended to age, but will probably last and evolve for a couple of years.

Yeah... here's the thing: you can't. You've now started slipping down a very steep slope and it's packed with ice and oil and grease and the tears of our children since we can't afford to pay for their college anymore.

Peter, can you talk to us a little about the 2012 vintage and harvest? Everything I've heard is that is could be outstanding?



I intend to write a full blown article / blog about the vintage soon. After the very challenging (especially for growers) 2010 and 2011 vintages everybody was thrilled to see weather conditions return to the "normal" range this year. We had above average crop size, very clean fruit, remarkably even maturity and no problem attaining desired sugar levels. Already by the middle of crush there were winemakers talking of "the best vintage in over ten years", etc. I wouldn't go that far, at least not yet, but all indications are for a very good to possibly great year. Aromas and flavors are great, but it is too early to accurately assess the degree of intensity and concentration of the wines. In other words, at this stage it's hard to tell if they'll be "pretty", medium bodied, early drinking wines or deep, concentrated, age-worthy wines.

Just checked on the wellington site, and they can ship to NH. Soooo, why wasn't NH on the ship list here? :-(

BTW, I am really hoping this ships in time for T-giving delivery - as the inlaws just got 2 cases going to them in VT. (3hr drive for us to them!) And they are french canadian, and certainly enjoy wine!!! eeck!!

Looks like I bought the WRONG Diablita. Stuck with 5 bottles of the white version. Too sweet to drink.

Peter -
Have the fall Wine Club shipments gone out yet? I signed up on the website which says to expect something around October but I haven't heard anything yet. Perhaps I didn't sign up correctly?
