Upcoming Chairman Selections; where did it go?

For a long time there was a webpage called Upcoming Chairman Selections at http://www.lcbapps.lcb.state.pa.us/webApp/Product_Management/Upcoming_Chairman_Select ions.asp

The page still exists but I have not seen content listed for months. Anyone know the status? Has the site died, have a new URL, etc?

The LCB has been moving consumer content away from that site. The Chairmans' lists that used to be maintained there have been migrated to FWaGS. If any lists are still there they are not reliable or updated on a regular basis.

When you go to www.finewineandgoodspirits.com, client on Wine -> Chairman's Programs -> then select either Chairman's Selection or Upcoming Chairman's Selection.

I hope this helps.

Thanks for the help.

The site seems like one step forward and two steps back. Instead of being able to scroll through the entire list, you now do 15 at a time, currently 61 items or 6+ pages. In addition there is lots of screen "real estate" taken up by "Photo Coming Soon". PLCB, if you are watching, a text list would be ample. Really give us something useful (like the old listing) and let us sort by red, white, etc.

Does that change explain why the link to Description from PLCB site no longer returns any descriptive information for the wine? thanks

@estepdp - yep. Trying to find a work around to that but nothing yet.

@John from PA - would an "Upcoming Chairman's Selection's Only" filter on the PAWineTalk Wines page be helpful?

@John from PA - you can easily change the number shown on the page to 45, and then I have a more advanced trick covered here that would allow you to show even more.

Here's a link that will always show you all of them on one page.

(Of course you have to do this every session because remembering your preference would be too easy.)

I personally like the gallery format - they just need to do a better job getting images.

So I was just thinking, gee, it's weird that you can't select Red or White once you are in the Upcoming Chairman's Selections. So I looked under the hood... they're using "Upcoming Chairman's Selections" as the "variety," which is also the attribute they use for color. Nice tech work guys. ;o)
