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.

Grand plan is to decant all of the bottles (at my place) around noon and we will bring them all up with us.

One space free on the tasting - it would be nice to have a full house of tasters as Miguel is coming over from Portugal for this.

Cachao Vintages indicated - Can I suggest that we do not include the non-Cachao Vintages - this will make the tasting more manageable.

Re: Quinta do Cachao Vertical on Wed 23rd October 2019

Set for Week commencing 23rd October 2019. Miguel from Messias and myself have arranged for 23rd October. There is no need to contribute physical bottles as Miguel is providing most of the ports gratis. Where I have had to fill some gaps (I am still struggling with the 63) there will be a nominal c...

Re: Quinta do Cachao Vertical on Wed 23rd October 2019

Wines arrived today looks like we have a complete set including a 63 - I had to pick up a few but most contributed by Miguel.

Miguel is visiting me the day before so we will decant and bring them up with Dia, Miguel and I on the day.

Hope this works for everyone...

If there’s space, place may I attend? If there’s no space, please may I be added as a reserve? Thanks.
Should be ok - welcome aboard. Just waiting for Miguel to let me know what Portugal are sending.
