Re: April Fool?

Spotted this... https://www.thedrinksbusiness.com/2020/04/snow-hits-portugals-douro-during-spring/ Oscar Quevedo also posted a picture of snow covered vineyards to the Portlovers at Naked Wines. Is this a coordinated April Fool with TFP or just a chilly Douro! Oscar said the snow and frost were of ...

Re: Online Tasting - Wed 25th March 2020

a wonderful evening and a very welcome respite from these strange times. Great to meet George, and also briefly Joao. As Mike says, there was far more time talking with each other than concentrating on the ports. The varied a wide range of topics was most entertaining, and by no means was dominated ...

I think my travel plans will allow me to join this tasting if there is room? Any particular theme or just something you want to enjoy at home? Best wishes to all and I hope you and your families stay safe and healthy.

Re: Warre's Sesquarcentennial Tasting - Tuesday 16th June 2020

Yes please, I think I could make this one. I have a 1970 VP or a wildcard of a 1974 LBV (a previous bottle from the same source was delicious).

As much as I would love to be able to do a tasting at the Factory House [at anytime],... mid summer is unlikely to work for me, but I hope that others get the opportunity to make the chance happen. It seems that this tasting of possibly of possibly the best vintage of our lifetimes (I am expecting i...

Re: Software that makes placemats

Quite liked the spirals, flowers and crosshatching. Not sold on the stars but the bold defining of the main elements is good to my taste a la Flowers.

Re: Software that makes placemats

Personally on the latest iteration for the Rebello Valente tasting, I think the droplets detract from the classic nature of the placemat and is like a very light version of Pollock’s number 14. I am all for pimping up the mats but this one is not for me... thoughts?

Re: 1991 Horizontal Tasting - Monday 9th December 2019 - B&F

I am afraid I will no longer be able to make this tasting. I hope Tom will be able to join you and have a bottle that will replace de mine.
I look forward to reading the notes on this interesting vintage comparison.
