“Another in an endless series of complex puzzle pieces has fallen into place.  We are many years away from our goal, but the opening of this tasting room is a very, very important step towards achieving those goals.  Thank you all for your steadfast support.” – Maynard James Keenan

Tasty!

I could have sworn that opened previously. Thought I got an email about that last year?

yup yup i remember which means one of two things, teh first i dont’ remember which might say something about my memory to begin with or, 2 we both somehow tripped out on the same things synchronistically which would be really taxing cause that would blow my mind

OK then… went to my old friend Google and found this:

It’s definitely been open for years… not sure what email Hellboy got, but unless I’m missing something, it wasn’t accurate.

OH, Wow! This place is beautiful, brand new, and has some really delicious wines.
The tasting room just opened this fourth of July weekend and I feel sooo lucky that I got to go there and check the place out.

Not only that, but judging from recent reviews, Maynie might want to do some quality control on his staff…

^ Ah, that explains it. The person posting on the main site doesn’t have a forum account, I take it? That’s why JUST the original post showed up here…

Speaking of James’ wine, does any know if it’s sold outside of his celler and the internet? I seem to remember reading somwhere that Whole Foods would start carrying it, but I’ve never seen it on the shelf.

They have it at several whole foods stores, not all though unfortunately. I also picked up a few bottles at a shop while in Denver for the RR shows.
This may help

That figures. Nothing in Louisiana.
Thanks for the direction.

No worries it might be worth it to order a few bottles from the tasting room. Probably only have a month or so before they stop shipping for the summer

Ehh, according to the website, the only wines availble for shipping at the moment are the Nagual de la NAGA or the Sancha. Not much of a choice.

it says that this is the LA wholesale company, maybe give them a call. They don’t have anything on their website so idk, maybe worth a shot.

Yeah, I saw that. I have a few friends in the local beverage distribution industry. I’ll have to check with them.

Got this from a mate for my birthday, haven’t cracked one yet. Have to find out where he got it from, was only a couple days delivery to Brisbane, Australia and apparently they have the others too.

Wouldn’t the travel ruin the wine?

No actually, no buts about it, it would ruin the wine.

Yeah, I’m probably wrong, I’m thinking direct sunlight and car travel

My bad, I’ll be over here not posting.
