Re: Thu 21st December 2017 - The Port Forum Xmas Bash

I shall print the pseudo-placemats on Friday 15th so please note no changes will be able to be made to the placemats after 7am on that day. JDAW — thank you for making the sticky labels. How many bottles? And there will be later changes: is there anybody else who has the 5×13 sticky sheets who coul...

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

I notice that most respondents have not expressed a preference between the possible themes. 4th strongly preferred, 3rd might work, 2nd no chance 2nd or 3rd works, but not 4th. 2nd preferred, 3rd not possible, 4th possible but not preferred Ouch!

Re: Tuesday 19th December - 77@40

Do we have a spare seat at the '77 tasting? There are a couple of people I met yesterday who might be interested in joining us if that is the case.

Re: Tuesday 19th December - 77@40

My choice would be to first include the Ferreira (lovely wine), then the Factory House (as we will likely taste all its components alongside). I'd also vote for the Ferreira, a very nice wine. Excellent decision made Ferreira and Factory House added. We have 1 vacant seat as CMAG can't make this, f...

Re: Tuesday 19th December - 77@40

Unfortunately Dirk can't make this now but has still very kindly offered to provide a bottle of Niepoort. CMAG has thus been promoted from the reserves. This now leaves us with 'just' 16 bottles for 14 people. Any views on adding some of these to the line up; Kopke San Luiz (Current bottle labelled ...

Re: Tuesday 19th December - 77@40

The line up has now been confirmed, we have 16 shippers, 18 bottles one of which is a magnum thus not bad for a Tuesday night. (first post updated)

Can people contributing bottles please deliver them to the B&F in advance, I will contact people shortly re sorting the costs.
