enodude: I’m dating myself, but I was there when they painted Kevin Sweeney’s yellow line of yardage from downtown Fresno all the way to Bulldog Stadium. I wonder if it’s still there. Two things I miss from Fresno State…tomato chips and Fresno State Dairy Ice Cream.
Sorry just noticed Winedavid actually logged in…this is Winefarm! GO YOU BULLDOGS!!!
The Sake’ volume put a crimp in our response to replacement bottles (candidly). Plus we had to get more wine from the good folks at Mandolina (who are very contrite about the Nebbiolo and more than making amends- you’ll see).
i envision everything to be cleaned up this coming week. We appreciate your patience.
Clue: You know i’ve always been a sucker for California Italian heritage (this time outside the town of Sonoma). Dating back to 1895 i believe.
i’m south of you in the valley. i really haven’t had any problems with the wine woots, only the past couple of orders have been slow to ship due to the “heat”. but as you are well aware, there’s not much difference between the temps in june or in september. i guess they’re just trying to be helpful. the last wine woot i got came fedex and had several of the ketchup packet gels. it was fine. the previous shipment came via ups, and was a tad warm. i’m in for 2 of the hahns, as well as the seghesio. so let’s hope for the best!
My account never transitioned from ‘Your order is in’ to ‘Shipped’ and therefore I missed the FedEx delivery yesterday. Is this a normal problem or just a lack of communication between the winery and WOOT? I’ve only purchased wine one other time and received a tracking number when it was shipped. Would someone that has a longer history with Wine.WOOT than I have please let me know how often this problem occurs.
Is there a delay in the shipping of these at all? I ordered last Wednesday, though Alt Ref tracking I found that Fedex has record of my shipment, but it’s been sitting “package data transmitted” since Tuesday. I’m in MN, so there isn’t usually too much of a delay in shipping or delivery.
