Finally, a special offer from Hoopes Vineyards, in case you didn't get enough at Hoya New Year Extravaganza or the Creighton Game Watch:

Just in time to celebrate with your fellow Hoya fans, Georgetown Alumna Lindsay Hoopes (COL '03) is offering a great deal on some of her family’s wonderful wines.

 “I’m a huge Hoya fan, of course,” says Lindsay, “So I know what all the Hoopla is about. After all, we make a wine called Hoopla—inspired by the spirit of basketball. It’s delicious. It’s fun. And I would love for my fellow Hoyas to have a truly Georgetown way to celebrate the Hoyas this season.”

The Hoopla wines are meant to be “fun” wines that buck the usual trends. They represent next generation of quality, but new wines, from Hoopes vineyards.

Lindsay is offering special pricing on her Hoopla wines just for Georgetown alumni and friends.

The Hoopla Chardonnay is bright and lively, full of rich Chardonnay character. It normally sells for $20 a bottle, $240 a case, but for our Hoya friends the price is $140 a case---a nice $100 savings.

And "The Mutt" from Hoopla is a rich red blend from the Napa Valley. It normally sells for $25 a bottle, $300 a case, but our Hoya price is only $200 a case—again, a $100 savings. And on top of that, we are offering a special deal on shipping: $5 rather than the usual $30 per case.

Sorry, but to keep our costs low, these prices and this deal is for cases (12 BOTTLE MINIMUM)---not by the bottle.

Interested? then contact Lindsay by email at Make sure you enter HOYAHOOPES in the title of the email so that you get your discount. For more information about the wines, please visit
