This is the way. I limped in at GCC as I am not a baller. :)

Srsly though, I spend about 50% of my budget on the 26th. Some of the offers are limited and it is your best chance to get something that might sell out.

Signing up for GCC should give you a pretty good sense of some of the perks involved, especially if you anticipate participating in Berserker Day.

Whether or not one signs up for the higher tier Monopole Cru, is entirely dependent on their individual comfort level. For me, I find that I get way more than $100 of value out of this forum alone, without any of the perks like Preview Day, etc. The way I look at it, if I find value in signing up for other wine publications, it seems silly not to contribute to a site that has been (to me at least) at great source of wine knowledge and insight. I also get to do my small part in helping keep this wonderful community going. Then there's all the perks layered on top that makes it a great value and no brainer for me. Everyone's situation is different though, so it's what membership level one signs up for is entirely dependent on what they are comfortable with.

I think we just hammered out a super cool Monopole-Cru-only offer for those anti-domestic people who feel BerserkerDay is not for them...
Apparently I'm lazy, have a narrow agenda, and offer little in the way of content and substance (RMP) (and have a "penchant for gossip" -KBI)

I cannot say if Sabelli-Frisch is new to you, but Adam Frisch is certainly very nice. Found them last year during BD.
very pleased with Sabelli-Frisch experience....and the Shiba Wichern Cellar people were beyond great to deal with....great wine from both

let me throw in Metrick wines as terrific people (and really like their reds)

What kind of price per bottles have you seen in the past (non-auction pricing) that you felt were a great deal. I understand this could vary widely. Just wondering what kind of damage to expect! I'll be signing up for the Grand Cru membership as per the recommendations.

Big auction fan so I'm looking forward to some bidding!

Thank you - and I agree that Metrick does some great wines. I hope Alex participates this year, but not sure. I missed Shiba Wichern last year, so hope to get some this year!

I signed up for GCC for a preview and plan ahead as mentioned above. Last two years felt like those WalMart black Friday videos scrambling from thread to thread trying to figure out my purchases. It'll be nice to have that sorted out a day in advance.

I second that for Sabelli-Frisch - one of the best discoveries I had from last year!

I hear that what the really cool kids are doing this year is to organize a pre-BerserkDay tasting, with a former BerserkerDay Champion and past BerkerDay wines, the night before Berserker Day 13 to plan and strategize the madness of the day. [cheers.gif] [berserker.gif] [berserker.gif]
