Re: Tue 5th June - Vintage with an '8' theme.

13 people and 14 ports.

Would like to withdraw the N78 and substitute with a Royal Oporto 58. This leaves a token for 78 and 88 with emphasis on the 48/58

Anyone who has a problem finding the right wine can ask Tony or Tom very nicely if there's anything available for adoption...

Nice find on the N58 though, Ian.

I have anticipated that this will be difficult to fill for some. More than happy for others to adopt.

Re: Vintage with an '8' theme.

FIRST POST UPDATED

I am away for a large part of May - I need to shape this up.
Can you let me know what you would be able to bring ?
If you do not have any 8's I can probably fill the gaps.

Re: Vintage with an '8' theme.

Personally speaking... I like the purity of the theme 2008, 1998, 1988, 1978, 1968, 1958, 1948, 1938, 1908, 1899, 1898, 1897, 1896... (which was the original intention). I can fill most of the years if necessary (except 1908)
