A MESSAGE FROM BRIGHT CELLARS
 


Bright Cellars is a monthly wine club that matches you with wines you'll love.

Founded by two MIT grads (#whyD3) who were intimidated by the vast and complex world of wine, Bright Cellars was created to help wine drinkers discover and learn about wine in a fun, interactive way.

Bright Cellars creates a wine experience tailored just for you. Based on an algorithm, wine selections are calculated to match your taste preferences. As you try the wines, you're encouraged to rate them on the website to fine-tune your taste profile even further. Your matches improve as the algorithm gets to know you better, making each shipment better than the last.

D3Playbook readers are invited to get 50% off your first 6-bottle box from Bright Cellars. That's a $45 value. Each box will include a wine education card for each bottle that details servings temps, food pairings, background on the region and more.

Take our 30-second quiz to start your weekend right.

The road to Cedar Rapids begins this weekend at the DIII regional wrestling championships.

To be eligible to participate in the 2022 Championships, all participants must qualify through their respective NCAA regional competition.

The top three wrestlers (first, second, third) from each weight class at the respective regional will advance to the national championships. There will be NO at-large qualifiers.

However, all regional tournaments should use true wrestle-backs to determine third place and fifth place in the case alternates from the regional tournament are needed.
