Re: Wed 25th or Thursday 26th March

It is never too soon; I am available either day but have a preference for 26th if that works for others.

Excellent idea Mike, I was thinking only earlier today of suggesting something very similar. I am in.

Does anyone know if The Ovens can cope with 28?
We had 20 for the 77 tasting from Mags and Tappit Hen, I recall the table can be extended further thus I think the answer is yes. Just dont forget no air con thus avoid summer months.

Re: 2020 - A 1970 horizontal

I am sure wherever we go it will be a fabulous occasion, also worth remembering that depending on the sort of tasting planned the B&F can seat 20+ in the ovens, I think we had 19 in the end for the 77 from Mag and Tappit Hen and there was room for more.

Re: Port for sale by retailer

According to a very good source it is a different blend, made with input from Waitrose. If interested Ocado have it listed for £25 and not the £35 at Waitrose thus when 25% off as part of a buy 6 promotion it is great value.

Re: 1972 Rebello Valente

This for me was the surprise of the night, and by far the best 72 I have had the pleasure to taste. This was rich and sweet with a great mouth feel, very satisfying.

Draft of the food order . Will be submitted on Monday, please advise of any changes required before then. n.b. I note that the current menu has moved on, and no longer has ribeye (for which I will state that substitution with Sirloin is fine if needed), and neither the Goats' cheese salad nor truff...

Re: Tom’s Birthday 1960 Horizontal, Tue 02 June 2020

There will be fourteen of us, likely all full-capacity drinkers, and 14 × 1¼ = 17½. Table space limits us to 1×A3 + 1×A4, so to about 15 + 6 = 21 glasses. Would it be wrong to have between 18 and 20? So which shippers shall we drop from my list? Losing Messias, RCV and Sibio would leave 18 Would yo...

Re: Informal pre-Christmas tasting

Wow, I stepped away from this thread and it looks like we already have a plan! I can happily say I'd be available on the 17th and love the "less than £25" theme. All we need now is the venue. Unless other options being considered suggest calling B&F asap to see if they have room as they will be ver...
