Re: Thursday 7th September ?

I think I could do either... but the 6th would potentially be easier.

Reconfirming and would like to offer the 83 (as it I shall. My only GC bottle) I hope that will be agreeable.
Many thanks for arranging this Ian.

Really sorry to hear of your bad fortune Simon, the last thing anyone ever needs. Hope you manage to get things sorted with a minimum of stress, horrible though it must be. Thanks Phil... just one of those bumps in life's road. We are now already having 'fun' dealing with the insurance company. The...

Luxury Douro Train

See the link for a way to travel in luxury to Vesuvio. It obviously looks like there is an association with the Symingtons. Has anyone had the pleasure of enjoying this train or know anything else about it?

Re: Wednesday 24th May - ABV

To comply with the theme I will need to bring a back up bottle as the main one I have in mind may be stunning... but there is a distinct risk it may not, and I don't want to provide bad juice whilst enjoying other fine bottles.

Edit: the main bottle is for Charles

Re: Wednesday 24th May - ABV

I can indeed come along... but may not be there until 7pm or just after as I need to wait for Rosie to get back. Please carry on with the food as I shall skip that on this occasion, and I shall join for the fine juice as soon as I can.

Looking forward to it,

Simon

Re: Croft - Reserva Particular - 1978 Tercentenary Year

How disappointing...I have one in the cellar that I thought I would find a suitable occasion to save it for to open, but it seems that I should just give it a try to see if it is drinkable. Thank you for returning to the post to update.

I think it would be great to have an LBV alongside a Colheita, a Crusted and then the VPs as a full 67 celebratory tasting.

Re: 2015 declarations

I thought Taylor might have released a VV as it is their 325th. Maybe they are being completely honourable and not just hanging a hook on a year...as they also seem to be doing re the Fonseca 1815-2015 bicentennial too [in not going for a full declaration], although they could also revert back to t...

YouTube of Cockburn Bicentennial tasting

Below is a link to a YouTube post from Jamie Goode from the Symington's Cockburn Bicentennial tasting. It is worth a watch and has a good story of acquiring some 1908 from a person in Norfolk.

Fun Foodie experiences

Whilst enjoying some fine port at the B&F last night, a couple of ideas for experiences that are well worth doing came up in conversation. I have been lucky enough to enjoy both the below when they were a bit cheaper, and although a bit pricey I can recommend them as great fun and very interesting i...
