Re: Coravin

Only if you really do expect to take more than a month to drink a tawny port do you need to start worrying about using a Coravin Disagree.

It would make a fine January tasting to get things going for 2018... Seconded, especially as I can't make the current date! Works for me. Have you tried contacting some of the other Davy's establishments we've used in the past? Ignore Mike and Simon, I for one would like to stick to this date :D No...

So 2011 widely declared, but not ’12 nor ’13 nor 14 nor ’15. Which is also the same gap as 1970-’75.

It isn’t entirely clear, but “tile.sweat.craft” might be nearer. Or “stands.plots.varieties”. The word seque...
