I went out for the weekend and had a wonderful time tasting mainly Zin and other Rhone varietals. I started at Vino Noceto, which was the woot a few weeks ago, and asked about 50 people who were pouring, serving, selling wine, etc, if they were involved with the woot. I just wanted to thank the winemakers for involving themselves in the woot discussion to help me decide to buy. I can’t express how many times i heard “the what?” when I asked about the woot. pretty funny. Needless to say, I was unable to extend my regards at this juncture…
At least you tried. I get the same reaction every time I tell someone I buy things from woot or woot.wine. It’s a great way to introduce folks to the site, though.
Thanks for the moral support! Although lolling around in the beautiful Sierra foothills explaining woot as I sip Sangiovese and munch on toasted things isn’t exactly a hardship.
It’s a cushy job, but somebody’s gotta do it!!
