    The cost increases of premium Rose Champagnes is comical. I feel like the price changes every invoice I get for Krug/Dom/Ace Roses.

    For a sub $100 rose champagne - the starter rose at several michelin 3-stars in Paris was this:

    You won't find many great vineyard or AVA specific Oregon Pinots for under 30 dollars imo. Instead it'll likely be a blend from vineyards across the Willamette Valley. If you do go with an OR Pinot under 30 and sometimes 25, I'd recommend Avaraen.

    Johan Vineyards Pinot Noir is around $28 and it is a fan fucking tasting Oregon Pinot.

    I think you can still get Patricia Green WV at that price point as well.

    These are just standard Veuve magnums - but had an artist do them for an event, probably going to going to get some more done.

    Arnot-Roberts Gamay and Trousseau order day! Threw in a few Zin and Sauvignon Blanc for good measure.

    This is actually the first A-R offer I'm going to pass on, in hopes of going deeper on large format whites in the next one.

    I passed on the rose offering earlier.
    I just love the gamay and trousseau and haven’t found similar wine at the same price level locally.

    Just got the email for the upcoming Sandlands offer and THAT'S one I'm going long on. I can never keep those around long enough.

    In Oregon you can find lots of options, but distribution gets lesser once you leave the state.

    Local wine shop has an Italian wine sale going on. Picked this up and enjoyed it quite a bit.

    How quick is everything going to go? I bought in the spring so I should be getting an earlier email. Do I have to be ready the moment the email drops?

    At least from my experience, you get a guaranteed allocation for the initial window. I buy right when I get the alert though, so even if I'm wrong I've never actually missed out.
