For some strange reason the BUY button seemed extra tempting this morning. I couldn't resist clicking it and I feel zero guilt as well. Definitely helps make my Friday that much better, thanks Pedroncelli and Ed! Have a great weekend all.

If I leave Friends in the 'fridge, at least one bottle is certain to be gone when I get back.

We recently went to a 6 year olds birthday party and the host asked us to bring wine. I brought a couple bottles of the 2012 Friends and had at least half a dozen parents ask me where they could buy it. It was a good wine to drink in the sunshine.

Not only that, but my Morris Fay Cab is in a storage locker and inaccessible!!! Whatever will we do?!?!?! LOL

Guess we may just have to settle for something inferior from the other 400+ bottles we have in the condo.

I purchased the 2012 Friends last September. I had asked about the aging and had a super quick reply from Ed that it was indeed stainless (my preference). I then explained it was for a girls weekend trip, 8 ladies. He indicated I may need more than one order. Boy was he right. Was excited when in January the offer came Woot's way again. So I purchased again. Last night a few minutes after midnight I was hitting that gold button without a moments hesitation. As others have indicated...Pedroncelli is one that will not disappoint!!!!! Auto-buy for sure...

Where do you live? It may be available near you. Or, they can always order it online http://store.pedroncelli.com/SHOP.AMS?

In the northern part of Italy, where our family comes from, Pedroncelli is Italian for "Feel Good Friday"!

That nice lady is why I was away for a couple of hours. We went out to lunch to celebrate Kathy's 38th anniversary of great customer service with Pedroncelli. 800-836-3894 is the easiest way to hear a pleasant greeting every day of the week!

Had to check with SWMBO, and got a "What you didn't order already?". So order is placed. Saw Pedroncelli Zin at the local wine bar. Surprised because I didn't think it was distributed in CT. But I think they also source from MY.

Yep! My "SWMBO" is going to the NE next week while I'm in GA. We are trying to get better distribution all over the country. So ALWAYS ask for Pedroncelli (even if you are planning to buy something else!)
A bottle a day, that's all we ask.

Ed, know that I'm out here doing my part! That case of white "Friends" I ordered a short while ago evaporated so quickly that just last night I went online to order a case of your rocking rose. So I was extra delighted to see the deal today. Called Kathy and I'm in for two cases.

THANK YOU SO MUCH for taking care of us disenfranchised Virginians!

Couldn't get a coworker to go halfsies and I missed the last Italian for QPR case offering, so what the hell... in for one!

Sidenote - thanks are in order to both my new Chromebook and phone, as I placed the order (and am typing this message) via a Wi-Fi tether while driving up I-75!

Ahh, technology. Making it even easier to exceed thy budget.

I hope that you're a passenger and not the driver, those activities are not safe to do while driving.

I tried to order for a ship to Maryland but it's telling me I can't ship there. Yet MD is on the OK to ship to list for this wine?

To be clear MD is on the WOOT OK to ship to list for this wine. As are OR and MT. These are the only three states on the Woot ship list for this woot that have no orders. MT sure,but no orders from MD or OR seems strange.

Says Maryland is allowed, then when I try to buy it says no go, am I missing something?

Saw Friends.Red in my favorite store this evening here in Wyoming . Didn't find any of the .White but I will ask next time I see the owner.

And yes, I pushed the big button this morning. Duh.

I will drink no wine before it's time. What time is it, anyway?

Southern Marin - I told everyone who asked to pay you a visit next time they went up to Sonoma explaining that you were good people who made good wine for a reasonable price!

Of course this is in transit during a record heat wave in Southern California. I have my fingers crossed that it is not adversely affected.

Guess that was silly of me to worry about the heat. I should've known better and instead worried about it showing as delivered (UPS -> USPS) without ever receiving anything. Ugh, this is going to be a huge pain in butt to track this down and make claims, etc. Worst of all, It looks like I may miss out on some great wines.

Thanks Rogetray, I did submit a support case as well earlier today (CAS-756360-J9B7Z7). However, I'm suspecting that this actually wasn't the wine shipping but another item in my order. Especially since the UPS tracking info says 8 oz. Has Pedroncelli shipped the wine yet?
