Just checked, and all I have from either is Wiese & Krohn Colheita 1957.
Thanks for checking - I'm trying to avoid the Colheitas - which these shippers are more famous for. Otherwise it would be easy.

Kopke and Krohn Mini-Vertical(s) Thursday 9th July

I would like to organise a Kopke/Krohn Vintage Port mini-vertical in July. A small delegation from the Port Forum went to St Luiz last year where we had a splendid tour of the estate and a 3 hour "lunch" and tasting. A, year on, I thought it would be fitting to have a Kopke tasting. The Krohn is an ...

Re: A 1970 horizontal, Tiers 1 & 2, Friday 9 October 2020

Moving on to assembling the cast. Tier 1 should be easy... From Tier 2 I have: - Burmester (Library release) - BBR Own Selection (same case 2 bottles) - Delaforce (same case 2 bottles) - Roeda (Magnum) - Gonzalez Byas (same case) - Messias Cachao (same case) - I am pretty sure Messias only produced ...

Re: A 1970 horizontal, Tier 3, Thurs 8 October 2020

This is going to be a challenge to put this together - the saving grace is that it will only need to be one bottle.

At the moment from Tier 3 - I have Royal Oporto, Dalva, Santos Junior and Borges. I'll put them aside as I suspect they will be adopted. I'll keep an eye out for any others.

Re: Warre's Sesquarcentennial Tasting - Tuesday 16th June 2020

Yes please Given you're first on the reserve list, I'd suggest there's a fairly high probability you'll get bumped up. As such, probably worth letting me know potential wine availability... A quick look shows as 20, 22*, 27*, 34, 45, 46*, 47, 48, 63, 66, 70, (70 Private cellar), 77 etc. * Only one ...

Mike - well done on driving this forward.
You approach seems pragmatic. It would be nice to run this for as many as possible.

Re: Ideas for tastings

A kopke vertical would be an interesting event. I have a few vintages (but never enough). I would be happy to organise if enough interest.
