Re: Warre's unfiltered lbv

Sounds a great idea - I have 2000, 2001 & 2002 not listed above.

I really hope I can make it (I work abroad more than half the year), if I cannot then I am very happy to put the bottles up for adoption should they be needed.

Re: Experience with BI Wines

I bought some port from them earlier this year and had the same problem - in the end I sent them a cheque as I was overseas and my bank's online banking is not that great. The port arrived once the cheque had been received. I believe (but this is only my supposition) that this may be due to an EU ru...

Re: 10th Sep 2019 - 1966 Horizontal at the B&F

Very sad, I will not be able to make it :-( I shall be at at trade fair in Asia. That is a great pity. Unfortunately, with this many people and so few practical dates to choose from it was somewhat inevitable that one or more would have two drop out. We hope to see you at another event soon. Thank ...

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

Of those not in bold (and therefore I assume currently missing) I can offer: Quinta da Senhora do Convento, Vista Alegre and Alves de Sousa.

Let's hope we all make it to 2051 ! :D

Re: Taylor 2016 vintage

An independent wine merchant in Yorkshire has it @ £585(ib) for a case of 12x75cl (although they list it as being en primeur, so it may be an old listing):

Re: Are Vintage Port prices increasing

The nearest copy to December 2016 that I could find that pubished port prices (going backwards by date from December 2016) was October 2016. The prices are below: 1977 Croft: 540 Dow: 600 Fonseca: 1260 Graham: 720 Sandeman: 540 Taylor: 995 Warre: 598 1985 Dow: 425 Fonseca: 550 Graham: 511 Taylor: 57...

Re: Do we need a 1966 Horizontal?

If there is space, I would love to come - I can offer Warres 66.

Re: 2020 - A 1970 horizontal

Excellent idea !

Of those not mentioned so far, I have Butler Nephew, Ferrerira, Gonzalez-Byass & Sandeman (only 1 bottle of the Sandeman) which I would be happy to contribute. If there is space, I would like to attend also, but I am happy to contribute the bottles regardless.

Re: Latest buy

12 Offley Boa Vista 1994. Everyone has their price, it is said, and 9% off appears to be mine. I had been succesfully resisting this for quite a while, and then Nickolls and Perks have a sale. I bought this from N&P some time ago at the pre-sale price, which i thought was attractive at the time. Ha...

Re: Port for sale at auction

Bonham's catalogue for this sale is now on their website. The big question is whether to buy more than one case. If I went for a 24 bottle lot, would anyone be interested in taking a bottle or two from me at, say, high estimate / 20 per bottle? Yes, I would be interested if you decide to bid... (An...

Thank you very much for the welcome - sadly when I get to my cellar the labels do often look out of focus in real life... :)

Re: Wine Rack sizes

I got my racks from A & W Moore in Derbyshire (http://www.wineracks.co.uk), they seemed to provide an affordable rack that has proven strong enough. When I ran out of wall space, free standing units provided quite a dense solution, two double depth racks back to back (i.e. 4 bottles deep) with a woo...
