Perhaps there are Port people who spend their lives noticing cute online damsels, but that isn’t the subject of this thread.

That's a great idea for Dirk: a wine called The Mother-in-Law.

Re: Wed 20th Feb 2019, Emergency

My sweet Port-loving mother-in-law is in town. She would very much like to attend one of these events of which she has heard so much. And, by Wednesday 20th February 2019, I’ll be very thirsty. So an emergency is hereby declared.

You know what to do. Do it.

Re: Sell collection

You came to us seeking a higher bid than an excellent bid. Well, sure, the desire is understandable, even if rather unrealistic.

Instead you were given advice that was honest, excellent, and free. The correct response would have been a little polite gratitude. Only a little, but more than none.

Re: 2011 Horizontal - London, Sunday 23rd April 2051

I am not updating the list of ports as their availability will very much depend on who the 14 brave survivors are when we get to 2051. I’ve done the opposite: placemats updated with a fuller list of Port, but not yet of people — awaiting decisions from DRT. Indeed, eight pages of glasses suggests t...

Lux-ed received today. Execeptionally well wrapped, almost obsessively so (a good thing surely), in multiple layers of bubble wrap, zip loc bag, paper and what not. Book looks fab, sumptuous leather, gilt-edged paper - wonderful workmanship!
Four more being wrapped today.

DRT is in charge, and needs to handle promotions and relegations. But allow my tuppence-worth: given the scale of the tasting, adding an Imperial would be a brave decision, minister.

I have gotten a bid for the whole thing at about 80% of retail.
Four-fifths of retail is a good bid, unlikely to be bettered here. I advise accepting, quickly.
