Re-confirming. No bottles available from my cellar. That stuff was kept on the island.

Following confirmations, we are expecting to be a full event of 14 people. We currently have 11 vintages of RV between us (one in magnum), which might not be considered sufficient for 14.

If possible therefore, if we have access to them I would like us to add vintages in the range of 1960 - 1970 from QdlR to the line-up, as Quinta de la Rosa supplied grapes to Sandeman for production of the Rebello Valente vintage ports during this period. This would allow direct comparison of any QdlR60-70 with RV60-70, and be appropriate for our industry guest.

If anyone attending has QdlR '60, '63, '66, or '70 which they might be prepared to make available for this tasting, could they therefore please let me know?

I will be trying to confirm which bottles people are bringing this weekend, so I can also finalise costs.
Regarding QdlR vintages, we have a QdlR60 between us, but no-one has yet mentioned a 63/66/70 - if anyone does have one and would be prepared to allow its inclusion within the tasting, please let me know asap. Thanks.

Would we be able to buy the 63 / 66/ 70 directly from Sophia for the tasting? I have a bottle of the 1963 but, as much as I love you all, I'm keeping this for myself to celebrate a birthday with.
Top Ports in 2019 (so far): Cockburn 1947 and Quinta do Noval Nacional 2017

Yes, I was planning to ask Sophia if we could not provide them ourselves, though I was hoping to minimise the number we need before asking as far as possible. Only for bottles people are happy to share though, of course.
