Re: Sandeman 1942 - another question...

From the same source, also acquired a stock of Ferreira 45, Tuke Holdsworth 47, Mackenzie 48, Boa Vista 50 and Delaforce 58. Given they're all quite rare I might arrange a tasting in early 2019 if there's sufficient interest... Venue would probably be 67 Pall Mall. That sounds like a wonderful tast...

Re: 2016 Declarations

I don't know. There are several references to Seara d'Ordens vintage 2016 but the only bottle I have seen was Talentvs 2016 so I don't know if it is the same.

Re: 2016 Declarations

To be accurate, most VP's don't come from just one Quinta. Even "SQVP's", by law, can have a small amount from other Quinta's and still be called a SQVP. Are there rules for SQVP? I thought that SQVP is not at all regulated by the law nor IVDP? Legally it is a Vintage Port, everything else is just ...

Re: Quinta do Cachao Vertical FEB 2019

Until 2009 the production was labeled as Quinta do Cachao To my understanding the labels "Messias" and "Quinta do Cachao" were used on different markets for the same wine until the vintage of 2007. As of 2009 "Messias" and "Quinta do Cachao" are two different wines. Is that what you mean by the quo...

Re: Bottle Watch

I have a few Dow 72 as well as Dow 80. 1972 is not a very good year though, suffering from the alcohol scandal of using synthetic industrial spirit for the fortification (1972-1974). Dow 1972 is one of the better 1972's though. I also have a few of the, Dow's Quinta do Bomfim 1980, that is much more...

Does Cruz 1992 exist?

I have information that Cruz vintage 1992 has been made. However, all pictures and auction results from the past I can find shows Cruz Colheita "vintage", that is obviously a harvest and not a vintage. Does anyone on this forum know if Gran Cruz vintage 1992 exists?

Does anyone have a Cruz vintage 1992, that I might buy? We are trying to set up a complete 1992 vintage tasting and Cruz is one of the few remaining brands.

re-stack each bay every five years or so. I will keep the bay with the wide span shelving, but will reserve it for cases that I expect to open over the next year or two.
No surprises in your home! That is an impressive long term planning!

Re: Stacking cases more efficiently

Stacks make FIFO (First In First Out) difficult though. I tend to want to use the older bottles at the bottom first and it is a lot of work to take out the bottom bottle from a stack, and thus I prefer to have the cases on shelves. When stacks are needed same size does save a lot of space and are mu...

Re: Companhia Uniao dos Vinhos do Porto e Madeira Lda?

It is for sure five different labels, but it might be the same juice in all bottles. As always it is difficult to know when different labels are used by the same Port producer.

Companhia Uniao dos Vinhos do Porto e Madeira Lda?

In 1989 a company named Companhia Uniao dos Vinhos do Porto e Madeira Lda, owned by Grand Cruz, made five different vintages: Aguila, Cabraco, Calvares, Dom Joaquim and Magales. As far as I know these brands has never been used again since then. Does anybody know why?

Re: Vintage Port by retailer in London

We were very glad to visit tpf tasting in London on May 8 and TBFT on the 9th. However, finding vintage port in London proved to be much more difficult than expected. Non of the major wine stores (nor minor) had any interesting vintages. If they had any at all it was 2-3 very common wines such as Ma...
