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.

Re: Thur 21st November 2019 - Rebello Valente vertical

Did I promise anything for this? What gaps are there? I do have a 27 - not sure of the condition. Maybe a few other vintages.

POCAS VINTAGE VERTICAL DATE TBD

Emboldened by the Messias Cachao Vertical - is there any appetite for a Pocas Vintage Vertical sometime next year? Early days at the moment... I don't have much in my cellars so I may need a little help here. Pocas may be able to help us but I am not sure what they have... People: Industry guest; TC...

Current version of the placemats has been updated.
Please could somebody check the placemats: are people and bottles both correct?

(Obviously the A4 glasses page tucks slightly under the A3, so saving a little table space.)
Looks correct to me.

Tony - would you like a pair of hands to help set up and pour? If so, what time do you expect to arrive?
If it means that I can relax whilst you do the work - absolutely!

There will be 3-4 of us travelling up so we can manage.
