I have sent a message to Derek and hope someone on the reserve list is going to enjoy this wonderful tasting. finances are tight and I have had to choose between the tasting and a copy of Julian’s bo...

Re: Cockburn Vertical, Tue 2nd Oct 2018

Reconfirming please. The Ck70 I have is mid shoulder and possibly not of the quality that is required for a tasting of this magnitude and importance so it would be better if I adopt please, as I don’t have another bottle to offer other than a 1991, which I don’t think will be required.

What a fantastic evening! The opportunity to have tasted a Waterloo vintage port and England win on penalties... an evening to savour indeed. Thanks are due to Simon for arranging the tasting.

Re: Offline 3rd July B&F Red Room - Bring a bottle to share (sighted)

A last minute opportunity to attend has presented itself if there is room for one more? I would not need to add to the food order and won’t be able to get there until 19-19.30 either, but would love to join the tasting and would be bringing a 1970 Souza VP bottled by Hall & Bramley.

Re: Tuesday 15th May 2018, for the Royal Wedding

Julian - Good luck

Derek - I am around from about 3pm and more than happy to assist with decanting and set up if you would like?

Alex - my early availability on the day also means I would be free to check out the BBR pop up too, so I hope to see you there before the tasting.

No food for me thank you. I will know on Monday if I will be there early enough to set up... or whether I need to wait for Rosie to come home which will mean not getting there until 7-7.30pm

Re: Second wind for 1963s? Tuesday 10 April 2018

With great regret I have to withdraw from this tasting. I have an event that evening and think it impossible I could be there before 9pm so I need to do the sensible thing and withdraw from what I am sure will be one of the greatest tastings. Very disappointed but I am sure a replacement will be fou...
