Are they all sold out? I can't seem to find them in the Vintages Shop to select.

I wasn't able to find it online as well. Even the lcbo # didn't work....

Am I doing something wrong?

Well I'm in the lottery for the Utopias now. Whole thing took about 2 minutes on the phone, no waiting on hold.

You need a customer # first, which you can get if you call them. Then you can log in and click on Direct Order - enter your customer # and postal code and it should show up.

or just order it when you call them to get a customer #. I know, seems odd to me too.

Good luck everybody!!

Yeah, just call and get a customer #. Then you can order online the next day. Or just call and give them the order on the phone.

A friend of mine who called in an order just before the deadline was told that they received over 1,400 requests via phone alone (so not including online).

Crazy!

Is there any sort of information available on how names will be drawn? Because the cynic in me can't help but feel that this is just an elaborate ruse to make people like me feel like we actually had a chance at this, when in fact all along the 70 bottles (or however many) were going to go to people who have some kind of a connection to the LCBO.

Josh reports on Twitter that it was 1,675 for the final tally.

Be sure to post up if any Bartowellers get a bottle!
