Just had a bottle of 2005 Viognier...don't drink this stuff right out of the fridge, let it get closer to room temp, just a slight chill, and it opens up and is terrific!

I would love a couple of bottles of viognier, so anyone in upstate NY I would be up for a split.

I had a wine dinner tonight, sorry I'm late.

As always, you can visit http://www.twistedoak.com/woot for more info about the wines - and a special video treat, the singing of the Viognier back label!

That's especially true about the 2005, and also speaks to the age-ability of Viognier. This Viognier wants to be a little cooler but over time I expect it to develop more roundness. You'll want to hold back a couple bottles for sure.

El jefe - why do you do this to us? Just as we're putting our list together, this comes up. Now, we were planning on having a few bottles of Picpoul on that list for the Wootception, and here's one on here. With a boatload of the Viognier, which I have had the distinct pleasure of having aged. So do we buy this and have it "shipped" right back to you for the upcoming extreme awesomeness, or do we sigh and suck it up and get a pack sent home as well as get the aforementioned list, or do we do the unthinkable and pass simply because we have this little shindig happening in August? Decisions, decisions. Guess I'll have to wait until HAK wakes up

I saw HitAnyKey42 on wine.woot! and clicked "I want one!"

Even at Twisted Few wine club prices, with tax and shipping figured in, this is about a $13 savings for me, so yes, I'm in.

The Wife has gushed about the Viognier, so I had to jump on this. Picpoul is an interesting bonus, so any comments on that one would be welcomed.

Never had a bad wine from Twisted Oak. The voignier is great, have yet to try the picpoul, but I'm sure it's a noteworthy wine. Temped to order to appease SWMBO with a white wine offering (I usually only order reds). . .

I'm actually pretty excited about the Picpoul as we go forward. It's such a refreshing wine - we've had a bit of a heat wave here in the Foothills and I think it kept me alive for a few days. ;) I wanted to add something interesting to everyone for this deal - I wish we could have included more than one bottle of the Picpoul but we didn't get much last year. We're working on getting more this year!

No worries. Clark is a great speaker and has a wealth of knowledge. If you can get to this you should!

Where/whom are you sourcing the Picpoul from?

It's local and just outside of Murphys to the north, a place called Dragone Ranch, named after the Italian family that first settled the area. An almost insanely steep north facing slope at about 2000 feet.

We kinda blew the wad for a while on the library thing, need to build up supplies again!

Pig Stai has always been a "true" port-style wine, made with Portuguese native grapes like Touriga Naçional and Souzão. We lost our source of these grapes a while back, but we were able to locate a new source in 2012 so we are making it again. And we are going to graft over some of our vines to ensure a continued supply. The 2012 probably won't be ready for another year, however.

Please clarify something for me - when we say "wootception", the "woot" is replacing "re" and is not replacing "con" - correct?

In for two ... mostly just because I wanted to have two bottles of the Picpoul!
(I've already got two bottles of the '11 Viognier in my cellar (er, um, closet) ... looks like we've got our default white for the rest of the summer. :-) )

Yes. Have I not used the term in our communications about it?

Well, I'm just saying that if the 'ception is the "con" and not the "re", I want the film rights! ;)

Nah. Moderators, typically designated by the dark bar at the top of their posts and a little comment under their screen name that says "Staff" or "Volunteer Moderator". Cesare is not employed by woot at all and just creates those info posts out of the goodness of his heart. Or maybe he's a robot. The jury is still out on that one
