    Okay, okay. I will *try* a Riesling. (Thanks for the spelling clarification in the post!)

    I didn’t know you tried the Chateau Ste. Michelle Riesling. They make a really good Cabernet and Merlot. 😉

    As a fan of Michigan State University, I found myself unable to cheer for U of M.

    However, Chardonnay???

    Chardonnay???

    Arggh.

    I can’t cheer for Chardonnay.

    …but, alas, Tricia – you say it best with the last line of your post: “It doesn’t matter what anyone else likes, it matters what YOU like.”

    😉

    Good times….

    Thanks for the comment, Dave. Your perspective is appreciated. (You *are* the expert!)

    I did enjoy one of my favorite bottles of Pinot Noir (ever) from a delivery in your wine club. I do love what you’re doing with your wine club!

    Thanks again.

    That happened to a friend of mine too. I don’t know how they “determine” you’re already a customer, without matching your email address or full address or something. And since there shouldn’t be a match, I am stumped.

    There should be a phone number on their site to call. After the holiday weekend, I can call them for you if you’d like.

    It’s a good club to get!

    Hey Karen – the only suggestion we have at this time is to simply contact the restaurant you’re considering, and ask them directly. Enjoy your shiraz! (BTW – what is your favorite Shiraz? I’m making my own right now!)
