Re: Hello from Brighton

have managed to get the Quinta Das Liceiras '93 Liceiras 1993 is very very rare, and has become expensive, far in excess of its likely merits. Schrödinger Welcome to :tpf: Zak.

I can't make it, but there is already an emergency next Tue, if you haven't seen.
sorry team, the Emergency has been called off as it was declared prematurely and the thread deleted.

Capitalizing Port has been standard practice on FTLOP for as long as I can remember, and I've always done it here, too.
+1 - although I capitalise, not capitalize.

Re: Real Vinicola 1931 and Real Companhia Velha 1957

Nuno,

If the bottles look genuine and are in the condition you describe those prices are very low, particularly for the 1931 which is a very sought-after year.

Re: 2016 Declarations

That makes 70 so far I think... does anybody know the vintage with the most declared. I am sure THE BOOK would help in answering this... The book won't answer this question. The last fully researched vintage is 1986. The explosion of new producers/shippers didn't begin to happen until it became leg...

Hi, and welcome to the forum.

Dow 1970 is fabulous Port.

I strongly recommend continuing to slowly drink your way through the case with your father. It will last two decades or more if is has been properly stored.

Re: Tue 13th Nov - An Emergency in London!

Would seven bottles between five be too much for a school night? Should the magnum be saved for another day? Taking your point on numbers I will bring just one bottle if that helps. Both of these reductions seem to have been implemented (which is fine), but only one is reflected on the placemats. T...

The food order can be downloaded from the first port. Please check.

A "Simon P." existed in a previous order so I have left those choices in. If not the same Simon P or different choices wanted please say here.

Re: 2016 Declarations

Semantics. Yes it’s a VP, so it has to follow those rules. To be called a “Quinta...” it has to adhere to more rules. For example, Quinta do Noval VP and Noval Silval VP can be declared in the same year. One is technically a VP from a single Quinta and one isn’t. They adhere to similar but also dif...
