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

Thank you for the prenotification, Wolfgang,

everything is fully booked and/or too late. My flight was on until 1h prior to leave....

I wish you all a great tasting and will fetch something from 63 out of my cellar.

Any costs involved, please pass them on to me.

Re: Thu 05 April 2018, THRA’s mystery 1922

I cannot make it on the dates, but could contribute some.

How about we do a 22 tasting on the monday prior to the Xmas tasting. Should be a very nice tasting.

The industry guest told me at ProWein to bring his/her 1963 Port. It has not been chosen by others yet.
