the LCBO DRC lottery was supposed to happen today, i spoke with a rep yesterday at vintages and it has been postponed to potentially the spring time, or until further notice... apparently some wines didn't arrive in time.  dammit!

None of the DRC wines have landed in Ontario yet.

oh no? how does this info get obtained? thanks for letting me know

My wife says that she never wins a lottery and I know why. Because she never buys one.   Let's place an order. Who knows. Thank you, ROSENGOO.

Wil we hear before the 72 hours is up - or will the LCBO take forever like they did with the bourbon lottery?

probably take a while... i was told there were over 35,000 entries for the bourbon allocation (that's per bottle) which caused the delay... i then said "surely the DRC lottery cant attract the same volume"... the rep at Vintages said that in fact does, sometimes even more.... i didn't think there was that many people interested in $1,000+ bottles of wine!

We had a DRC Grand Eschezeau at the Granite Club with a group of Forum winos a while back and it was definitely worth the ~$600 price tag.

Just for fun, put in an order but I won’t get any given my address.

if you do get an allocation I will pick it up for you...

I got an allocation of Zero. I’ll send you my coordinates 

Myself and 5 other family/friends shut out. I assume there weren’t many bottles this year because of the small 2016 vintage and lack of E/GE bottles.

Pains me to say, but for the first time in three years I was shut out. 

Funny cause I was thinking that if you weren't, there's more to the lottery than complete randomness.
