Re: Port for sale by retailer

For those that have not already filled their racks, there has been some limited restocking of the M&S 2007. I was trudging home along Oxford Street this evening, exhausted after a dispiriting meeting in the West End, and thought I would pop into the Pantheon store again just in case. I was not so e...

At my local Sainsbury's all Port is full price :(
Yes, odd that- it appears to be very localised as the GM was at the full price at two other stores.

Re: Port for sale by retailer

The emissaries are beginning to report back; two bottles of the Warre (perhaps the last of the species in the South) have been located and collected in Poole. I fear they all maybe EW (extinct in the wild) very shortly.

Re: Port for sale by retailer

Have sent out emissaries (aka work colleagues) to scour the interior and to not return until they are successful!

On a different note Sainsbury’s have the 2003 TTD at £12 and the GM2005 at £16.80-both ‘to clear ‘.

Re: Port for sale by retailer

Marks & Spencers in Camberley and Bracknell are now bereft of Vintage Port Yes, inspected the Camberley store on Sunday. Guildford is also out (which is a bit annoying as when I was in there a couple of weeks ago they had loads of the Warre in a central offer position but when I enquired whether th...

Re: Third time is the charm - History in the making

.... Also no Gould Campbell and no Smith Woodhouse, but for other (more dire) reasons. The no Gould Campbell was certainly an other more dire reason. Smith Woodhouse not so dire I thought - that brand still lives on in the SFE portfolio. They made a SW16 so hopefully you are correct. FWIW GC also s...

Re: A reliable company to collect and forward bottles won at Auction

Having just purchased a few bottles at auction in the UK, which I need to have collected (and packed) for shipping to the Continent, I am wondering if anyone has hit upon a reliable courier to such end since this discussion started? Sadly,no-I still use Benelux but very, very sparingly. I try to pi...

Re: Tue 25 June 2019 - 2017 Vintage Ports

You're not going blind, nor losing your mind. :) There was an earlier 2017 thread with an April date and you posted towards the end of it, perhaps after the new thread had been started? Dave, you're right, I am not going mad (at least not yet anyway) I now see it in the discontinued thread -hurrah!

How strange-I did post my availability for this tasting (and promised to post tasting notes) but I am either going blind or that post has vanished from this thread?! Can I be opted back in please?

Re: 2017 Declarations

Cripes-iit looks like my intention not to buy any new vintages may have gone out the window although the apparent demise of SW is disappointing and removes the last tier 2 Port from the SFE portfolio.
