I don't regularly buy any wines, but I do make wines from the same grapes and vineyards every year. So, sparkling Cayuga, Riesling, Pinot Gris, Vidal, Pinot Noir, Cab Franc and Lemberger. OK - I do repeat purchases of Louis Martini Napa Cab.David M. Bueker wrote:...but how about the 10 desert island wines taken from the wines you still regularly buy?

I tried to figure out how to branch out a bit more, but realized that I could not let go of any of the 10 I listed (especially since I am planning of having Laura with me on the island). I would really miss Trimbach CFE.
I'll just row my boat over to your island for wild boar night. I'll bring the mags of Champagne!

Sticking with stuff I at least occasionally buy (the Taittinger and Lafarge Clos des Chenes are now only splurges, but I've bought within last year) I came up with a list designed to have variety (I'm hoping my desert island has wild boar and fowl as well as a nice fishing lagoon). I'm hoping I get some mature Canon and Montelena, and that they don't send me 10 year old rose.

Lafarge Volnay Chenes
Huet Le Haut Lieu Demi-sec

Not that I would kick any of them off of my island, but I simply do not prefer the examples that I have tasted. Perhaps the skin-flint in me is compelled to consider QPR even as I head into exile.
PS: I saw the Louis Jadot Beaune Clos des Ursules on David’s list. That is definitely the best value Burg I have ever consumed as I found four bottles of the ’98 in a cut out bin for $18 each some years ago. Even at regular prices the CdU is a solid QPR for sure.

IIRC the Easter Seals event included a dinner along with the auction. We attended a couple of time back in the mid-2000s. I believe I was aced out on cases, but did win some large format offerings. I have 2X mags of Stags Leap and Silver Oak that I think I won there. I do not recall a CdU being offered when we attended. If there had been we would have definitely been bidding against one another.
Does Easter Seals still hold that event? I don't recall seeing an announcement in recent years.
