Re: 2018 Carter Release

I could be wrong but I remember only La Verdad selling out the first day. I placed my order on the second day and I think everything else was still available including the OG I picked up. I think it sold out by the end of the day though.

The UPS depot a mile from my office is easier, especially since they recognize my car.
The ups warehouse is also a couple miles down the road from me and shares a building with my gym. Which works out well except they have limited hours to pick up. 11-6 I think.

I will give Kapcsandy credit, however, in that they don't require minimum purchases or three-packs for each wine.
Also free shipping, I just get two bottles of the estate cuvée each year.
