Dead Presidents Weekend

Dead Presidents Weekend

Every year we get questions about Dead Presidents Weekend. Because we are all about customer service and we’re always here to help, this year we are going to help you operate from a position of clarity. The basic premise is that you hit your safe deposit box and pull out stacks and stacks of valid US currency and trade us for wine. Some other highlights:
  1. There is a US law that will now allow living persons to be depicted on currency. So, all those Obama bucks you’ve got stashed won’t work.
  2. There is another law that says you can’t make your own currency. (Unless you are really, really good at it – then don’t tell us). So don’t bring that homegrown stuff either.
  3. For clarity – size does matter. To be specific, this is a Woody. It would be the best picture of a dead president you could EVER bring up to CBC:

4. If you don’t have a lot of Woodys at your house (of if you are fresh out), here’s what you can expect at CBC from the various presidential pictures on other forms of US currency:

a. $1 George Washington – All You Can Eat Pretzels!

b. $5 Abraham Lincoln – Glass of CB Bubbly or Renegade Red.

c. $20 Andrew Jackson – Your Choice of One Bottle of Any of Renegade Red or CB Bubbly – Tax Included!

d. $50 Ulysses Grant – Your Choice of any 3 Bottles of Any of Our Bistro Reds, Renegade Red, or Mystery Juice – Tax Included!

e. $500 William McKinley – This will get you a Big Daddy at CBC! Three Cases of Futures to Spread Out Over 2 Vintages!

f. $1,000 Grover Cleveland – A Big Daddy and 3 Cases of Wine to Take Home!

g. $5,000 James Madison – 1 Pallet (56 cases!) of Renegade Red or CB Bubbly – Your pIck!

h. $100,000 Woodrow Wilson – See Above – Bring About 45 of These and We’ll Give You the Keys to the Winery and the Forklift. No Kidding…

February 18 – 20, 2023
