Re: Tue 11 Jun 2019 — 1994 Mini Horizontal

Tom my guest has dropped out so there is a free place I will put you down for if you are still free.
Ben you are on the reserve list at the moment.
Admin needs to step up a gear here- that is me!
So we need 14 different ports I will send out some Emails to get this going.

Re: Niepoort 2017 Vintage Port Launch - 11 April 2019

Congratulations on the first reviews of the 2017 Vintage! It’s always great to see the early reviews before group think potentially sets in.

Re: Tue 11 Jun 2019 — 1994 Mini Horizontal

RJM you are very welcome. Will be great to see you, I have added you to the list. Can you please have a look at the Boot and Flogger’s menu and advise what you would like as a starter, main and pud. We will then add you to the standard order sheet which we will let them know a week ahead to help wit...

Re: Quinta do Noval Olive Oil

I think Douro olive oil is going to totally take off and there will be a large increase in production over the years to come.

As I have said before I think a table of olive oils at trade shows would be great. I have seen them sold in wine shops so a natural move!

Please can everyone say what they can bring.
I think to be honest being semi blind V blind will be tricky enough anyway.

Many thanks

Re: Tue 11 Jun 2019 — 1994 Mini Horizontal

I would like this tasting to be semi blind. I think it makes sense for everyone to declare what they bring so we get a good selection and avoid me doing the usual of guessing it’s a different port when it is the same. By being semi blind we avoid label bias and I think makes it a bit more fun. It wo...

Tue 11 Jun 2019 — 1994 Mini Horizontal

The 1994’s reach their quarter century this year, I think that is reason enough to see how they are getting on. I also think they are rather good value so a good opportunity to see which ones to look out for. I am not sure this needs to be a big tasting depending on how much interest there is I was ...

Re: Wed 13 Feb 2019 - The 10th Anniverary Vesuvio Case tasting

Well it took me 12 years to organise my first tasting! Very helpful having the team food order and Julian doing the tasting sheets. The Boof and Flogger were excellent. We are very lucky to have found such a welcoming home for Port Forum tastings. Well to the tasting. Vesuvio is a magical Quinta and...

Re: Quinta do Vesuvio Box Vertical, MAR 1st 2019 NYC

Have a great tasting! I will aim to post the results from the London tasting over the weekend. What I will say as it will not influence you is that the 2006 Magnum was rather good!

Re: Quinta do Vesuvio Box Vertical, 13th FEB 2019

Thanks very much.
Alex will be there from around 2.30 so I think we are good. Agreed re timing being early- we may need to drink a bottle of port of the list prior to the tasting! You are most welcome to join us when free.

Pouring around 5 ish so works well.
Tasting sheets all done!

Thanks so much
