Re: Thursday 18th January 2018?

Alex: how spacious is Bar Douro? Will we have room for 2×A4? Currently I have squeezed seven bottles onto a single A4, but when Derek reveals his ’82 that will become eight, for which a single A4 is insufficient. How tight are things? At this point there is a 30% chance I will be there. Please don'...

Re: Tue 13 Feb 2018: Mr. Wolfgang Stars

Please put me down as a possible attendee. I might have to withdraw if something happens to my second knee between now and then.

May I suggest that "German pours" should be obligatory for all if there are fewer that eight attendees.

Congratulations, Wolfgang,

Re: Thursday 18th January 2018?

Gents,

There is a chance I will be in London on 18th Jan. I cannot commit to being there but wondered whether or not a gate-crasher with a bottle of something suitable to drink would be tolerated?

I'm happy to pay for and eat a share of the suckling pig if that is deemed to be helpful 🐷

Re: We need some tastings in the diary

A potential theme/request from me... The first of my knee replacements has gone very well. Only four weeks in I can stand on that leg without wincing, and have walked 10km in each of the last 14 days. The other knee will hopefully be done within the next four weeks and by spring I could be ready to ...

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

W84 LBV . Orange-red, 25% opaque. Nose faint, with pleasant heat. taste strawberry. A hint of grit. Actually quite lovely strawberry-flavoured port. Could easily be a mature VP. I am planning to bring Warre LBV 1984 - the groom's birth year vintage. “Fit For a Duchess”, please: ⇒ ≠LBV. Apparently a...

Black Tie?
E.g.

While happy with the principle of a black tie affair, mid-week logistics makes this more difficult than I would like. I prefer not.
I agree with AHB.

Re: Tue 2nd or Wed 3rd or Thu 4th Jan 2018

Not possible for me. Left knee being replaced on Monday and probably not much travelling until late January.

My complete horizontal of 1878 will have to wait a little longer 🙄

Great Canal Journeys - Rio Douro

I just watched this episode on catch-up TV on Sky. It was broadcast of 4Seven so if you have access to that it is worth a watch. Some great footage of the Douro plus appearances from Dom and Johnny Symington, the Robertsons and Adrian Bridge. If you ignore the factual inaccuracies and just enjoy the...

Heads-up...

There is an article in this month's edition of Decanter that will be of interest to lovers of the brown sticky stuff.

I have a bottle with three eights in the vintage. Would that be of interest? :D

Re: Port and the Ashes

I tuned in on Wednesday night to watch the opening overs only to find it wasn't on Sky. Luckily I hadn't had enough to drink to persuade me to instantly upgrade to include BT Sport so I am going to have to give this series a miss.

Re: Thu 30 Nov 2017, Sandemans and 1970s (for the Placemat Software’s 15th anniversary)

I am likely to be either having or recovering from knee replacements in January so my place should be given to someone who can walk from the tube station to the B&F :( Plural! Both knees? Indeed. My surgeon advises that there might be period when I don't have a leg to stand on. But later I might be...
