Delmas allocation LIST: FAQ’s
How long must I wait to get on the allocation LIST?
Please sign up on the Waiting List. We are currently fully-allocated. As our production grows (beginning with the 2016 vintage) we will be able to add new members to the Allocation from the Waiting List. We currently allocate in six-packs and full case orders. Your patience will surely be rewarded in short order.
When will I receive the Wine?
When a spot opens up we will send you an invitation to join our allocation LIST. Each successive year your position on the LIST is secured via your continuing purchase of Delmas Syrah. Release notifications are sent out each February and payment is secured by March. We will ship to everyone in the fall (October-November) given appropriate weather.
What happens if I do not purchase in a given year?
Due to our small production, we have instituted a Protection Rule. If an allocation LIST member wishes to forgo a certain vintage, we will administer the following course of action: The member would be moved to the Waiting List and receive three “priority invitations” to re-join the allocation LIST. Should a member decline this invitation for a third time, they will be removed from the allocation database altogether. Should you wish to rejoin Delmas at a later date, you would need to resubmit your contact information. Of course, if the member accepts one of these “priority invitations”, LIST membership would be re-instated.
What is this glorious party in June at SJR Vineyard I keep hearing about?
Every June we invite our allocation LIST members to join us for a special celebration at SJR Vineyard during the Celebrate Walla Walla weekend. It is a great opportunity for Team Delmas to catch-up with LIST members at our estate SJR Vineyard, as well as for members to meet like-minded Aficionados of Delmas Syrah. We offer our guests a bountiful array of food and wine...a vineyard brunch in The Rocks District like no other! (As of 2020, LIST members will receive a very limited, exclusive allotment of Delmas Viognier....which will also be poured at the party.)
Can I visit and taste the Wine?
We are not large enough to “taste” visitors on Delmas Syrah at this time. However, we invite you to let us know when you will be in Walla Walla Valley. We would be happy to meet you, and your friends, for a tour of our beautiful SJR Vineyard while sharing our winegrowing practices and providing insights on The Rocks District of Milton-Freewater. Please contact us for a tour of the property; (firstname.lastname@example.org).
