Got a delivery yesterday… no golden bottle. My heart is broken :rofl:


#162

PS - getting married this year so a special bottle would have been a real treat!


#163

Congratulations, @Juan! :grinning:

You can always invest in the single bottle left of this Gevrey Chambertine

Or perhaps better save the money for a nice suit instead! :wink:


#164

I’m starting to suspect there are no golden bottles, and this is all just a big psychology experiment :thinking:


#165

Thanks @Inbar !!! :grinning: Got the suit already so I’m going to save to buy a few magnuns. CVNE wines will be poured at the wedding which is in Spain, asides from tones of sherry :+1::joy:

A golden bottle might have topped it all up nicely…


#166

Au contraire! https://twitter.com/TheWineSociety/status/1103985624820973569


#167

A wild golden bottle appeared!

Lucky Gary!


#168

If Gary even exists… :wink:


#169

It’s a suspiciously well-taken photo…

#170

In support of Martin I am going to have to come clean…Not received my order yet


#171

What if the golden bottle is well beyond its peak and faded or is corked, can the winner invoke the society promise as well on it?

You can find one DP bottle of verset Cornas 1991 on wine searcher for £675 with a U.K. merchant.
whether Gary was fast enough to flip it, that’s a very healthy ask price!! :rofl:


#172

It must be true… Gary’s just posted on Instagram :sweat_smile:


#173

I’m Gary and I didn’t get a Golden bottle! I’ve been robbed!

Perhaps it’d be better if all Gary’s got a bottle? :wink:


#174

I think that was the original plan, but they could not find 21 Garys in the membership…


#175

Well, I’d be happy to be the representative Gary and ‘look after’ the lot, if that makes it easier…

The cheek of it!


#176

My order arrived today without a golden bottle. Clearly they mis picked and gave my verset to some guy called Gary.

Is that my only chance? Can I reorder and be entered again?


#177

Ts and Cs specify one entry per member. Fingers crossed for 20 March for me


#178

God knows I don’t need more wine.

But given the deep s**t we are in my order this month will be from Vinissimus, as we may never get the chance again

So one more chance of a Golden Bottle for you guys :slight_smile:


#179

I got my latest delievery yesterday and was shocked to find that I had won

Nothing !


#180

I’ve had the same thought @suiko, and plan to put a final vinissimus order in next week…after I’ve received my TWS Willy Wonka bottle!
