I’m still trying to understand the general lack of interest 99.9% of my friends have towards wine … amazing really .
Met up with some old school friends a couple of weeks ago, and one of them quite memorably said to me: “Oh, so you’re one of those wine people then. You lot are basically alcoholics like the rest of us - you just try to make a science out of it.”
Maybe our projection is way out of line - 223 bottles left!
The offer did not come through in the post by the way… or my in-laws hid it
I got it today, along with Christmas offers, Alsace etc. I must say, this month’s marketing materials are really rather gorgeous and appealing. I’ve already got orders coming tomorrow and next week and I was sorely tempted to start putting another one together!
Got it today too, and agree with @Bargainbob that it looks stunning! Planning to get an order through by this weekend - not the last one before Xmas, I’m sure!
I also agree that is the strongest monthly line up in a while.
Nothing’s arrived by post for me yet … I’ll be waiting for the postie tomorrow morning then … or afternoon or evening … it all depends on how many pubs he’s passed on his rounds
Offers arrived today and this thread has also tempted me to press the order button…too late the Burlotto and Schlumberger are in the bag.
… or indeed how many rounds he’s getting in! If all else fails you can always find them here!
Perhaps you need to try and trade him up to drinking less but better quality?
I think I would fail miserably
Just had another look at the Alsace offer and have to say it is a cracking line up… the following two mixed cases are seriously tempting my resolve…
I think I will just contemplate, procrastinate and then not buy…
I’m a master at that sort of thing. I even contemplated writing the reference work on procrastination, but never did get around to it.
Further Alsace releases now live (Weinbach; archive and current stock; not cheap, but good value I expect). Quantities of some are miniscule…
and 4 more Zind Humbrecht in the Inbetweeners offer
I got the offer through the post and immediately put it out of sight. I cannot buy any more, I must not buy any more, I should not buy any more… where did I put it again?
Ahhh…The true wine enthusiasts mantra…
