A note to people who have not yet paid the requested amounts to me, please contact me as soon as possible. I am shortly going to have to pay a significant amount of money to secure places at various dinners.

If you have not already paid me and do not contact me before 20 April I will assume that you are no longer travelling with us to celebrate our 10th anniversary. You may be able to join us later, but reservations for people not paying / contacting me prior to 20 April will be subject to availability at the time.

Thank you.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908

A quick reminder to those coming to Portugal next week, please don't forget the dress codes are jacket and tie for Wednesday night, black tie (including tambuladeira for members of the Confraria) on Thursday and smart casual for dinner on Friday.

Axel - please do let us know about the tasting, especially comparison of '71 vs latest if you're allowed publicly.
(wish I could have joined you - but you know that! Hope everything shows well)

Very sad to be leaving Porto this morning but I feel I have made some contribution to the recognition of 10 years of TPF. A big thank you to those who made it possible and who helped make my trip so memorable.
