This post was inspired by recent posts in the "Is this forum dead," thread.

I propose a contest.  I will give away a wonderful bottle of wine and pay for shipping to the poster who:

- Has been registered here for at least 6 months with no commercial posts as of today.

- Posts a new topic in this thread that is relevant to wine in any way.

- Responds in her/his new thread with thoughtful content.

- Is a hot, single female who lives on the East Coast.  

Ok... 3 out of 4 will qualify.  Contest starts today.  Ends on September 15, 2020.

Since I alone can't fix it, I'll post another thread for the forumites to decide the winner on September 16.  In case of a tie, I alone will determine the winer.

Wine to be shipped in cool weather.  

Categories where I can provide the winner a bottle:

France

Italy (the three Bs)

Portugal (Port)

California

Germany

Oregon

No... you can't have any of my Champagne. Shag off, Festiva!!!

Game on.

I hereby cancel this contest due to lack of interest. 

The wines that were on offer:

1982 Calon Segur

2000 Barolo Conterno Fantino Sori Ginestra 

1983 Graham's Port

2001 and 2002 Neal Family Cabernet

2001 J. J .Prum Wehlener Sonnenuhr Auslese

A Le Cadeau Gift Package of 3 bottles

I'm discouraged. I hoped that at least a few lurkers would have crossed the Rubicon.  Buncha wimps.  Marvin... back to you.

Pfft.

I'll tell you what, when this is all over at some point maybe I'll come to DC; you find a restaurant walking distance from the Sofitel, we'll open some great wines and discuss your wimp out.

P.S.  The JJ Prum is an entirely separate class of wine than the others you've listed, imo.
