@raccoon81@mrallen1@IanMorr@SDL3 have all been outstanding and easy to coordinate with so far! LOL at the Pavi…I even mentioned the split I picked up from @IanMoor when I was getting another split from @racoon81 this weekend. My only mistake was not buying a case for myself Not making that mistake again anytime soon!
I’m one of the few long time wine wooters from our Houston group (@SDL3 was that I know of), and I have to say it’s much easier on Casemates to coordinate and find people to split with. I’m really, really enjoying this endeavor and our partners in our group so far! Extremely happy with WW’s replacement!
@IanMorr@mrallen1@raccoon81@SDL3 Ya know…If only @Winedavid49 could work some magical powers and find a hidden stash for a Wellington Victory offer! Now that would be a great split to show everyone what they were missing out on I’d settle for an Iron Horse offer as well!!!
You can handle it however you want, but it would be useful to include the names of people you’ve had good splits with- that way if someone wanted to check the history of a person they could come here and just use ctrl-f to see.
@scott0210 I live in Cuyahoga Falls - a little closer to Canton than Cleveland. I have split with @mrn1 a few times and would be happy to be a go between for @scott0210 if that works out better for you. Just say the word.
Wish I could find some mates to split with, living in Utah - a no ship to state but I have a ship to location in southern Idaho I find myself buying some 3or4 packs if its something I really want with the occasional case (Twisted Oak - Scott Harvey) , would by more if i had a mate or 2 to split with. Sometimes when i look at the difference between a case or a 3/4 pack i just say no - not worth it to me. Current offer of the Harvest Moon is a perfect example, at 15 a bottle it’s not worth it to me - have lots of daily drinkers available however at 11.25 bottle I’m interested but not for a case.
DFW/North Texas checking in… We’ve had plenty of splits and no issues other than the time it was pouring rain (obviously wasn’t the split). We have a good group and will keep it up as long as @Winedavid49 / WCC team keeps finding us great deals!
@hey_zeus I was about to chime in. I have kept over 50 bottles off this site in i think 12 different splits of different arrangements… I have a sheet i keep track of my order and splits. I’ll tag everyone else later but I’ll say this. In all the splits I’ve done I’ve never had any issue. In fact the other, since I’ve had limited transportation options (take the train to work). Many others have come to meet me to trade orders or handoff. Hey_Zues was one of the first people I meet on this site and has been gracious enough to even open his house for a labrat review. JohnNelson has introduced me to a lot of Dallas local events I’m loving.
Seattle has only had one meet up but it went well, and I think just about everyone that needed to be there was expect maybe one or two people. I know I got all the bottles I was supposed to and delivered all the ones I needed to.
We’ve found some folks in Western New York to share with, and it’s worked out very well so far. There have been a couple of minor communication breakdowns, but we have some new friends, and sooner or later we’ll find a way to get everyone together for a belated launch party. I really like the chance to take advantage of the case price savings. The best part was when I responded to an inquiry and wound up splitting a case of Gruet with a guy who turned out to be somebody I’ve known for around 20 years, used to be colleagues.
NJ is a tough nut to crack. It’s consistently listed top 10 in wine consumption, but the NJ thread is a wine desert these days. This is probably due to somewhat limited offerings on Casemates (today’s offer being a prime example). I never quite understood why NJ permits are so less common. The fees didn’t seem terribly high.
That being said, I had a successful split with @kelaiem a couple of months back. And looking forward to a meetup with @seeds (and @kelaiem) soon!
I’ve been pretty quiet lately, but it’s because I’m out of room! I’m getting a new fridge sometime in the next week, though, so getting organized should hopefully lead to increased consumption/more free space. Ive only split with you so far. I need to see if coworkers are interested again.
