Has anyone else received a call from these guys recently? I'm a member here and at Lot 18 but that's it. A lady called and said someone gave her my name and number and wanted to sell me wine of course. When I told her I wasn't buying wine over the phone she became very argumentative and finally ended the call with a personal insult. I do not recommend doing business with these guys.

In Oceanside California? Never even heard of them.

I used to work with them, and it was a very weird situation. They would call me during business hours at my office, and pretty much lie to my secretary to get through to me, saying that it was a personal call (which of course it isnt) and then ask me about the kinds of wines that I liked to drink. When I asked how they got my name they told me that I was either at a tasting or someone I knew was. Either way they would not take no for an answer. My guess is that they use a lead procurer to get people's names and just cold them.
Mind you, I did order some wine from them, it was delicious - not like something that I could pick up at the store, but the way they conduct their "calls" bothered me, and I informed my secretary to never accept a call from them again.
