PS Raffled Off for a Good Cause

Gary Vaynerchuk, among many other wine and food bloggers, is participating in the 4th annual Menu for Hope, in which various wine-, food-, and cooking-related goods and services are being raffled off. Most of the PrizeS seem amazing, with Gary's "Me + $500 of wine + you + 7 friends, anywhere you want" probably among the most desired.

Just as PS is undervalued and under-appreciated in the market, directing your raffle tickets towards the PS-related PrizeS offered up will also likely offer greater statistical return than the more highly-touted offerings. Of course, I'm quite tempted to not publicize these so as to maximize my own chances of winning PS, but charity combined with my desire to exPoSe as many people as PoSsible to PS are winning out.

Jo Diaz, combining her roles as wine-blogger and communications director for PSILoveYou, has made available a mixed case of PS from 12 PSILoveYou members as their donation to Menu for Hope, with a value of at least $250 (and probably closer to $300 when you realize that shipping is on them!) -- prize code WB07. This case includes the following wines:
  • 2000 Concannon Vineyard Heritage, Livermore Valley
  • 2003 EOS Estate Winery, Paso Robles
  • 2004 Foppiano Vineyards, Russian River Valley Estate
  • 2003 Grizzly Flat, Lodi
  • 2002 Marr Cellars, Tehama Foothills, California
  • 2004 Mettler Family Vineyards, Lodi
  • 2005 Mounts Family Winery, Dry Creek Valley
  • 2004 Parducci “True Grit,” Mendocino (reviewed by themostrighteous, below)
  • 2003 Pedroncelli, Dry Creek Valley Family Vineyards
  • 2004 Silkwood, Modesto
  • 2002 Trentadue Winery, Alexander Valley
  • 2005 Twisted Oak, Calaveras County
In addition, Simply Recipes is offering a half-case of the highly-touted Quixote 2004 Petite Sirah, valued at $210 (again not including shipping). (reviewed by Gary Vaynerchuk in Episode 161, link in the right-hand column), under prize code WB08. More details about this delicious wine, including information about the winery and links to some tasting notes/reviews are available at the Simply Recipes post announcing the prize.
