Oh for goodness sake! Get on with it.

Is it English?
haha - you're supposed to be sitting this out! It's not English.

So to summarise, it is a well-known name, from Europe. Not English or French.

So it's not Chambertin (which technically is an appellation rather than a producer).

I'd stick with the green room for the moment, but enquire if the red room is available.
Done. Red Room is available as of today. Let's see where things end up.

Sloe wine?
No not sloe. Another clue. The wine is a highly regarded name.

Noted, and top post updated. That takes us to 8 persons which is max for the Green Room. If we had a sudden rush for more attendees I can inquire about the Red Room. Or would it make sense to just go for the Red Room if it is available?

Re: One quiz at a time

On Thursday night I tried a wine for the first time - one I had been keen to sample. What was it? Producer will do, don't need the year.

Alex - you need to sit this one out....you know the answer!

Re: One quiz at a time

Yes I would have had no clue without that recent visit. We enjoyed some nice cocktails up there 😀

Right, now to think of a question...

Re: Summer Thirst

Splendid - Green Room at the B&F is booked. I'll ask for food pre-orders shortly, to minimise the admin on the evening.

Summer Thirst, Wednesday 9th August 2017

Seems like a long way to the next scheduled tasting. Anyone in and around London on Wednesday 9 August for an informal get together at the usual place? Bring a bottle - hopefully we have enough people to book the Green Room rather than the Sauna Room upstairs... Where: The Green Room, The Boot & Flo...

Re: 21-23 June 2017: The Port Forum 10th Anniversary Celebration

Alex - a massive thank you for organising a superb anniversary trip to Porto. I will make a more complete write—up of my trip experiences as soon as I can!
