Though only on the reserves list, my then-to-be-87 year old self would still like to attend.

First post update to add Gerwin to the reserve list and re-confirm interest from Tom and Glenn.

I am not updating the list of ports as their availability will very much depend on who the 14 brave survivors are when we get to 2051.

Perhaps those who have promised bottles could consider bequeathing them to this tasting in their Wills?

Or Crasto or Burmester - the latter was quite a surprise also..
