What's involved?  We each send a wine to another fellow forum member?  Who's gonna send me a 2006 Silver Oak Cabernet Sauvignon?

Guess I wasn't around for last year's, which I assume was inaugural.

First reaction was this must be some giftbasket spammer...

Actually this will be the 3rd year.

Right you are Al...usually we set a minimum bottle price.

$40+ again, or?

I don't want to sound like a bummer, but shipping wine for me is impossible.  Unless I get my in-laws to ship something from Seattle, but then it would be something obtainable by most, save for a smaller Washington winery.  I will bring some BC wine to any event possible for me to attend, or person who extends an invitation.  I find that more meaningful than passing fifty bucks from one hand to another.  It's a nice idea though.

I organized the first year (a headache, but worth it), then handed off to mystery santa from there.

Smaller WA wineries are quite fine IMO. As are BC wines, of which I've had precious few and would love to learn more. And of course you have a standing invitation to SD. NYC too, although that's not going to be for much longer.

At any rate, the last bottles I got were outstanding. One I drank a year later and promptly went out and bought a case, the other I'm still holding.

I'm in.

DV, it wouldn't be much of an issue for you to send wine through a retailer...however your SS might have a hard time unless you'll be down here at some point? Or Washington relatives, etc.

DV, last year JenniferT played and she lives in Victoria. Her Santa chose a wine at a retailer in Victoria and had it held for will call. She ordered from K&L in the States and had it shipped to her giftee. It's not too difficult.

Santa,

You know how to break a guy!  Okay, I've met Jen and if she did it, then I can participate generously and graciously.
