Re: Sherry Tasting with Sarah Jane Evans MW

Thanks Rich... The TPF product is hidden so you can only go through Alex's link above. If anyone from TPF has already ordered please let me know and I will adjust etc. Alex has put a lot of effort into putting together a great line-up. There is also a TPF Quevedo link Quevedo Tasting .

Re: VWP and b.f.t. Quevedo tasting

Simon,
Thank you for the shameless plug.
A great effort so far between Oscar, the BFT team and VWP. It's an experiment - so fingers crossed that it will work, that everyone enjoys it, and that we raise a little money for charity along the way.

Re: Ideas for tastings

Port legends - Iconic ports of the 20th C (or even 19th). E.g. Ck12, Cr45, T48, N31, F66, F27 etc. Small gathering... perhaps 8 max??

Re: Y2K Tasting Tuesday 17th March

As Infantado is not of the highest repute, I should adopt as well. What is available? We are missing Warre from the line-up. Perhaps you could adopt that from Tony? Sorry - I no longer have the Warre. Would two half bottles W suffice? Let me know what you want - I have Ni, RP, V, C, S, Burmester(ha...

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

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 ...
