In Round Two we will randomly reassign the 18 wines into six flights of three wines each - one flight for every week. Each player will rank the 18 wines in order of their draft preference for their Round Two roster. Players must submit their draft preferences by midnight on Wednesday, January 9th to ensure that their roster is formulated when Round Two launches on Thursday, January 10th.

When listing your draft preferences below please keep in mind that the points each wine received during Round One were impacted by the number of flights that we sold and thus how many people were voting each week.
