Mollydooker takes home the trophy in Wine Madness!

winemadness.jpgIn the Final Four, the sleek and stylish Rieslings of JJ Prum got out to an early lead but Mollydooker came roaring back to take the crown in the first ever Wine Madness! The Maitre D’ set up shots, the Two Left Feet ran hard, and The Boxer played a tough inside game. The Violinist annoyed the crowd at first but then got drowned out by the cheers for the action from the court. During the chilling moments in the first half, they all had Goosebumps but by the end they were walking down the Enchanted Path, drinking Gigglepots, and wondering if they might be heading to a Carnival of Love.

And Mollydooker gets the grand prize: a link back to their website! Catch all those references in the preceding paragraph by checking out the whole line of wines over at

I hope you enjoyed the tournament. Thanks again to wine blogger and journalist Mark Fisher for the idea. If you have suggestions on how to better run it for next year, hit the comments! Perhaps we will have to do a pool after all. If only this blog were hosted in Las Vegas…

  1. I’ll have to give my Maitre D’ a nice dinner and a comfy seat tonight for the win!

  2. How can these too compete with each other. JJ Prum makes wine, Mollydooker makes some kind of beverage which tastes suspiciously like Red Bull mixed with vodka.

  3. Mollydooker over Prum? Truly, the upset of the century … Well done, Tyler!

  4. The prize should be blueberry pancakes to pour the Molly over. Delicious!

  5. The fix was in.
