TT: At least WW could have continued it for some of us that have been here for a number of years. For instance grandfather it for those of us that have been here from close to the start, or 5 or more years.

We'd love to but it's a manual process to do it - not automated.

I never got one anyway, so your manual process didn't work very well when it was place!

Tried this today. The worst white on Woot I have had, there are TJ $4 wines that are far better, this is as appealing as the label looks. My first really big disappointment on Woot. Only hints of a SB.

Which white? Tria?

Did everyone get the same 'mystery' woot cellar wines? I received Blitzen and Albino Rhino.

i tried the Blitzen and the Albino Rhino recently and loved them both. the Albino Rhino was so good with some age on it. i hope you enjoy. and no, we mixed it up good.

Oh no! Boo. Please reconsider - the code monkeys can make it happen auto magically.

I think I had a #2 Monkey Prize. And Maybe a Blitzen, because I didn't remember ordering that one.

Also, I just went back through all my Woot orders... man! There were so many Good Woot Juices that I've had that are now long gone.

Just got my case of woot wines! Just in time for the holidays!

Our mystery bottles were Blitzen and the second Triacipedis (Minotaur's Chalice).

I think I just won the Wine Woot lottery. Mine just arrived and I got F-bomb and D'ontspille. I keep looking at the bottles to make sure I'm not deceived, but, nope, there they are!

I was hoping for a re-offer on the Blitzen but it looks like you had to buy 10 other bottles of woot cellars to possibly get one. Boo!

That's the new business model. You have to buy something you don't want to get something you do. Corkscrew anyone?

I received the one of the Tøøthstejnn and a Triacipedis and the Minotoaur's Chalice.

I am excited to get the Toothy, since I haven't tried that one, but I am a little worried it is past it's drinkable age?

I have really enjoyed all of the wine cellars I have gotten my hands on. And everyone I have talked into splitting some bottles with is never disappointed.

Toothy was one of my favorites, but it may be past prime. I'm curious to read your notes. I suggest light Italian fare.

I liked it enough to take them off your hands. Were they at the wonderful $11 price point?

Yeah. Whatever woot had them for. Or we'll split something else and trade. I have 5 -- 2 for you, 2 for me, 1 for tyger.

I also got hooked up on the mysteries I think - I got FBomb and Twas. I've not tried Twas yet (maybe a year before my time on Woot) but from what I hear I should be very excited about this! ;-)

Those who got Albino Rino or Tria II, take comfort that you also got some of the more epic woot whites from recent times. The Tria is more fruit-forward and the Rino is more old world/complex, so enjoy!

And if any person near NH got the Dontespille and for some reason *doesn't* want it, let me know and I will trade/buy it off of you in a heart-beat. My final bottle of that is still being hoarded in my wine fridge like a precious prize...

I lost the Woot lottery!! My order that was supposed to have 3 bottles of D'ontspille came with a note saying it was delayed in the system and they used all the bottles in the mystery packs! grrrrr!!!!

If I had any idea that could happen, I wouldn't have given away the last bottle I had!

They did send 6 other random bottles to make up for the mishap. I am hoping they will be as enjoyable as the D'ont.
